Brace yourself: The rumors are true. The Starbucks pumpkin spice latte is out today (September 1). We just got off the phone with our local Starbucks to confirm.
Yes, Starbucks is pulling a stunt with a four-day livestream on Facebook in which the company will announce the “official release date,” but don’t delay—you can go get your PSL fix now. Last year, the launch date was September 6, so this is a little ahead of schedule. But if you recall, people were able to tap into the early release on September 1 last year, too.
EDIT: We suggest calling your Starbucks ahead of time. There are reports that some folks are being turned down when they request a pumpkin spice latte. But given the amount of successful orders we’ve seen, we think it’s worth trying your luck.
