The 2019 release date for Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is quickly approaching, and it may be available sooner than you think. While August tends to close out summer with some of the hottest temperatures of the year (hello, heat wave!), it also serves as the unofficial kick-off to fall with students going back-to-school, NFL pre-season tailgates and yes, the release of the legendary Pumpkin Spice Latte.
The 2019 Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte release date
Starbucks confirmed in its Leaf Rakers Society Facebook group on Tuesday that the official PSL release date about be on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
Last year, Starbucks released the PSL on Aug. 28, and in 2017, it came to stores on Sept. 1. However, the earliest the Pumpkin Spice Latte has ever made its iconic comeback was on Aug. 26 back in 2014, and the latest was on Sept. 5 in 2015.
Starbucks has already released some pumpkin spice items
On Aug. 1, Starbucks released a fourth flavor to its lineup of brand new coffee creamers and you guessed it—it's pumpkin spice-flavored. The coffee creamer, as well as seven other pumpkin spiced products, are rolling into grocery stores as we speak.
From pumpkin spice ground coffee and K-cups to bottled lattes and cookie straws, you can already feed your pumpkin spice cravings. (Although we agree, nothing tastes the same or as good as the original PSL made by a barista.)
Fans are demanding the Pumpkin Spice Latte's return
People can't wait to get their hands on their Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, and as they do every year, they're speaking up online.

It's coming oh-so soon!
Any idea how many white girls will be asking how much longer they'll have to wait to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte this August? A brunch.
