STARBUCKS fans have something to look forward to as rumors have it that a fan-favorite fall staple is set to hit shelves again earlier this year.
With fall fast approaching, many coffee fans are looking forward to a fall flavor.
An allegedly leaked menu by food blogger Markie Devo (@markie_devo) shows that the Pumpkin Spice Latte could be launching soon.
According to Devo’s Instagram account, there is speculation that the fall menu, including the Pumpkin Spice Latte, “will be released on August 24th.”
Starbucks has not confirmed the report, which also includes plans to release an Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Shaken Espresso and Iced Pumpkin Cream Chai Tea Latte.
If the rumors are true, fans could get their hands on the famous fall-flavored drink in less than two weeks.
Starbucks first introduced the Pumpkin Spice Latte in 2003, marking the 20th anniversary of the fan-favorite coffee this year.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Impatiently waiting for Starbucks to bring back the Pumpkin Spice Latte.”
Another said, “Can’t wait to get a pumpkin spice latte at my campus Starbucks!”
But Dunkin’ fans will likely get their hands on the fall flavors sooner than Starbucks.
“The Dunkin’ Freaking No Donuts Fall Menu will be available August 16 through October 31,” Devo’s post reads.
Dunkin’s version of the Pumpkin Spice Signature Latte and the Nutty Pumpkin Coffee will return.
The fast food chain also offers a variety of sweet and savory snacks, including the Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast Sandwich & Snackin’ Bacon, Pumpkin Donut & Munchkins, and Pumpkin Muffin.
Forbes estimates the size of the “pumpkin spice economy” at more than $500 million a year and counting.
Hungry customers can choose from a great selection of pumpkin spices this year.
Last year, Starbucks stopped stocking its iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup due to high demand at several stores.
Starbucks launched cold versions of the fall classic in 2019.
These included an Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte, a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino, and an Iced Pumpkin Spice Foam Macchiato.
