Starbucks® Pumpkin Spice Latte Returns on August 30
Also returning are customer favourites Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew and Apple Crisp Macchiato - now made with oat beverage
The first sip of a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte or Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew cues the unofficial start of the fall season for many customers, and Starbucks is celebrating its return alongside a full menu of fall favourites.
Starting Tuesday, August 30, the iconic Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL), is back for its 19th year. The handcrafted beverage combines Starbucks® Signature Espresso and steamed milk with flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove to complement the real pumpkin in the sauce. Topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices, the beverage is available hot, iced or blended at stores in Canada throughout the season while supplies last.
Also available for a limited time is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, which returns to the menu for a fourth year. Crafted with Starbucks® Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup, the fan-favourite fall sip is topped with pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of pumpkin spice.
First introduced to the fall menu last year, the Apple Crisp Macchiato returns with a twist - now made with creamy oat beverage and Starbucks® Blonde Espresso as the standard recipe. Inspired by the flavours of the warm and gooey apple crisp paired with a cup of coffee, the Apple Crisp Oat Macchiato combines layered flavours of apple, cinnamon, and brown sugar with a spiced apple drizzle.
“Crafting the Apple Crisp Oat Macchiato with Starbucks® Blonde espresso gives the beverage a soft and smooth foundation that ties all the flavors together,” said Harvey Rojas Mora, Starbucks beverage developer. “The oat beverage adds a creaminess and brings forward the oat flavors of a traditional apple crisp topping.”
The Apple Crisp Oat Macchiato is available hot, iced and blended at Starbucks stores in Canada throughout the season while supplies last.
