I am such a fan of the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks and every year I count down to when it is released.
Despite it being 95 degrees and still July, the only glimmer of hope I get from the sweat dripping down my pants is knowing that towards the end of August, Starbucks will start rolling out the PSL.
Now, you probably think, CJ…you can make this at home with REAL PUMPKIN. Well let me tell you this…there’s a level of satisfaction of being one of the first in a Starbucks to tick off a barista by asking for a Pumpkin Spice Latte in August.
Don’t steal my sunshine…or in this case…pumpkin!
Besides…everyone is less angry during Pumpkin Spice season because the air is cooler, the sun isn’t as high, the severe storms are lessened and of course, they have a $5 PSL in their hand every morning.
Not to mention I love the pumpkin candles, putting out candy corn just because, and pretending to live in a state where leaves change colors.
So yes…this whole article was just an over-exaggeration of me being excited for pumpkin spice everything season in a month and you know what…I don’t even care!
All I care about is getting my first pumpkin spice latte.
