    For nearly two decades, the pumpkin flavor at Starbucks has signaled the start of the fall season and inspired a cultural phenomenon around fall flavor and products.  

    Starbucks customers can say TGIF (Thank Goodness it’s Fall) by enjoying all their favorite pumpkin menu items.   

    For nearly two decades, the pumpkin flavor at Starbucks has signaled the start of the fall season and inspired a cultural phenomenon around fall flavor and products.  

    Starting Tuesday, August 24, the iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) is back for its 18th year. Starbucks handcrafted Pumpkin Spice Latte combines Starbucks signature espresso and steamed milk with the celebrated flavor combination of real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Enjoy the Pumpkin Spice Latte hot or iced and topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices.

    PSL is one of Starbucks most popular seasonal beverage of all time, having sold an estimated more than 500 million sold since 2003 in the U.S.

    Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew returns to the menu for a third year, crafted with Starbucks Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup, topped with a pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of pumpkin spice topping. 

    Since its debut, Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew is one of the most popular seasonal iced beverages with more than 90 million beverages sold in the U.S. and outsold the PSL last year.

    For customers who love all things pumpkin, Starbucks fall bakery items are now on menus nationwide. For a limited time, seasonal favorites Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin and Pumpkin Scone, will join the Pumpkin Loaf, which is available year-round.
