Dining out: Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks
PSL is back!
If you've waited all year for the return of Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte, you're in luck as it returns Tuesday, Aug. 30. Along with it comes the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew topped with pumpkin cream cold foam and pumpkin spice. And there's also the slightly reinvented Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato, which this year is a blend of oat milk and blonde espresso garnished with a spiced apple drizzle. Plus, pumpkin flavors return to the bakery in the form of the limited-time pumpkin cream cheese muffin and pumpkin scone. The new owl cake pop, made with vanilla cake and buttercream, joins the bakery lineup, too.
