Do you hear that? That soft, but forceful whooshing sound? It's the sound of summer coming to a close. You might be sitting beachside this weekend with a cold beverage, but Starbucks has other plans that involve cable knit sweaters and cozy nights by the fire. It might only be the second week of August, but this week the coffee giant announced that two new Pumpkin Spice Latte products would be hitting grocery shelves near you.
That's right, you no longer have to live near an actual Starbucks to get your long-waited PSL.
"Nothing signals fall like the enticing hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove and launching this year exclusively in grocery locations is the new ready-to-drink Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and new Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Flavored Ground Coffee," says the Starbucks website.
Two new PSL products — ready-to-drink Starbucks pumpkin spice latte and Starbucks and Pumpkin Spice Flavored Ground Coffee — are coming to supermarkets near you. The former, the Starbucks bottled pumpkin spice latte, "features Starbucks high-quality arabica coffee with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove spices, and creamy milk." The latter, the Pumpkin Spice flavored ground coffee, "features Starbucks lightest roast coffee with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg."
The two items join the existing grocery store lineup of four products: Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Caffe Latte K-Cup Pods, Starbucks Iced Espresso Classics Pumpkin Spice Latte, Starbucks VIA Instant Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Chilled Coffee Drink.
"Starbucks first launched the handcrafted Pumpkin Spice Latte at stores in 2003 and this fan-favorite beverage has since become Starbucks most popular seasonal beverage of all time," said the company in a news release.
