If you had to make a list of your favorite things, it would probably look something like this: puppies, cheerful old people, great hair days, bacon, and PUMPKIN. SPICE. LATTES. Not necessarily in that order.
Today, good friends, is a day of celebration, for we have stumbled upon some incredible news. The Starbucks fan-favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte is coming back (as we expected) but joyfully early on Aug. 25 (very unexpected). We're surprised there isn't dancing in the streets, because there probably should be. Does this mean the Salted Caramel Latte will return as well?
According to the official Pumpkin Spice Latte Twitter (yes, it exists and has so many more followers than any of us), on Aug. 7, the PSL announced its official early release.
18 days until I?m back from vacay. Get ready to ?fall? in love all over again. ?? #seewhatididthere? Pumpkin Spice Latte (@TheRealPSL) August 7, 2014
Using "math," we have calculated that 18 days from August 7 puts us at about…Aug. 25. Which is next Monday. Exactly a week from today. We definitely didn't have to use a calculator for any of that.
In case one tweet isn't enough proof for you, the PSL Twitter also tweeted this dead giveaway and completely non-vague tweet about its return…
Let?s say ?hypothetically speaking? there?s a way to spot me on the menu early? #whatwouldyoudo? Pumpkin Spice Latte (@TheRealPSL) August 14, 2014
And Starbucks employees (or maybe just people who snuck into the supply room) have tweeted photos of the precious PSL syrup.
Is it possible the PSL is coming back a little too early? We'll let you be the judge. But always keep in mind you can get it iced. (Right?)
White girls wearing Uggs and North Face jackets, try to contain your excitement. You'll have your Pumpkin Spice Latte Instagram in exactly a week.
