Calling all pumpkin heads… Pumpkin Spice Latte is back and it’s vegan-friendly!

Pumpkin Spice Latte (#PSL) fans rejoice: your autumn favourite is back, and it’s now available for vegans.

PSL will return to Starbucks stores across Europe* on Thursday 6th September, marking the start of autumn for all. With a combination of Starbucks Espresso Roast, pumpkin pie flavoured sauce and steamed milk, topped with delicious whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices – cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves – the PSL is sure to spice up your season.

And, for the first time ever, the sauce is dairy-free, so it means vegans don’t have to miss out on the PSL’s beloved taste. It also tastes great with a dairy-alternative such as almond or oat, and can be enjoyed hot or iced – ideal for any weather.

From "The Real PSL"

Excited to return to stores, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte said:

“I took some me-time after a busy season last year and I’m looking forward to seeing all my fans again this autumn – it’s my favourite time of year! Whether you like me hot or cold, drinking in or out, I’m ready to spice up your life. Oh, and I’m now available for vegans in some countries around Europe too, without comprising on my deliciousness.”

Get it early

My Starbucks Rewards (MSR) customers can get an exclusive first-taste of PSL a week early before it’s officially available in stores – just purchase via the app or card from Thursday 30th August. MSR gold members can also enjoy the full range of dairy alternatives in Starbucks company-operated stores for free.
