…Add Some Spice

 Believe it or not, in a little over two weeks, the beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) will make its long-awaited return to a Starbucks near you (and the eight others also near you).

This year’s arrival is a little bit more exciting since the Latte is getting a little bit of a makeover. Before you freak out, let me assure you, it’s a good thing. 

This year, for the first time ever, the Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte will contain actual pumpkin.

I know, it’s crazy! What will all the PSL-haters have to complain about (other than the sugar content and price)?

Never fear, there’s still one PSL-shortcoming left. Those of you who excel at math and calendars, may have already noticed.

It’s late.

For years, the PSL has signified the arrival of autumn (in late August). Now, we have to wait until September 8th…that’s only two weeks ahead of fall. This kind of change could throw off our entire concept of time and seasons.

Basically, this could be the first sign of the apocalypse. So just to be safe, Starbucks, maybe you should let us have our Pumpkin Spice Lattes now…please.
