If you walk by your local Starbucks today and see customers screaming with ecstatic joy, don't be alarmed. They aren't experiencing a caffeine overdose, but rather are just excited for the news that the Pumpkin Spice Latte is coming back early this year.
The news was first revealed by the Pumpkin Spice Latte Twitter account (yes, a Starbucks drink actually has its own Twitter,) on August 7th.
On Wednesday, the account made a more official statement that the Pumpkin Spice Latte would be returning on August 25th.
For Starbucks connoisseurs, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is a big deal. The drink is usually only available during the Fall months, increasing its appeal as a limited favorite. And with this being the 10th year of the drink, you can be sure that Starbucks and fans will be celebrating a decade of pumpkin spiced goodness all season long.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte isn't the only cherished drink at Starbucks. Check out a few of the "secret" items you can get at the coffee chain below.
