Okay, lovers of all things pumpkin spice, it’s go time. Today the beloved PSL makes its triumphant return to Starbucks.
Along with that sweet cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin(ish) flavor comes the inevitable protests from the PSL haters.Most will be fairly harmless. They’ll wonder if it’s maybe a little early for fall flavors. It’s not.
Others will ponder just how authentic the PSL’s flavors are. That’s not the point.
But the worst of them all, and those you should just ignore, are those who will label the PSL and its fans as basic.
These are the joy suckers who can’t seem to fathom that others might have the right to enjoy something free of their judgement. Although, mostly they’re parroting others bizarrely hostile opinions on a harmless, annual latte tradition.
The point. Don’t let their lack of love make you feel ashamed. You do you. Enjoy your autumn in a cup, be it hot, iced, or blended. I would recommend the latter two because, seriously, it’s still summer…but no judgement.
