Pumpkin Spice Latte season is upon us! The original #PSL is back


It’s been 17 years since Starbucks first introduced the PSL and started its very own seasonal zeitgeist

Highly anticipated amongst Starbucks fans and autumn aficionados around the world, the iconic drink is back – all hail the original Pumpkin Spice Latte.

The return of the PSL marks the start of autumn for many *cue crackling bonfires*. The drink is now a seasonal staple synonymous with cosy knits as the temperatures cool and we finally say farewell to summer.

A scrumptious combination of Starbucks Espresso Roast, pumpkin pie flavoured sauce, and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices – cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves – this truly is the ‘pumpkin-g’ of flavours.

History of the icon

Back in 2003, Starbucks created the original Pumpkin Spice Latte. Since then, the beloved fan favourite has grown in popularity year on year.

Over the years, Starbucks has evolved the drink to align with shifting consumer trends, with diverse variations to cater to all preferences. From the addition of cold options such as the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino, to the introduction of the vegan dairy-free Pumpkin Spice Latte sauce in 2018, the innovative beverage team at Starbucks have got you covered.

The PSL has become its own cultural phenomenon, with each silky-smooth sip of the drink reminding fans of crisp, autumnal days past. Every year social media is ablaze with excitement, and this year pumpkin lovers’ joy is particularly contagious.
