Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte will be available starting August 27th.

This is the earliest the Starbucks PSL has returned to the menu — last year it was officially released August 28th.

There’s been lots of talk on social media that Starbucks locations have already been receiving the syrups for everyone’s favorite fall drink.

Last year, the grande PSL cost $4.95 — $1.00 more than a caffe latte. This year my local Starbucks grande caffe latte was $5.28 so we can only expect that a PSL will cost over $6.00. Make sure you’re earning freebies by signing up for Starbucks Rewards!
