Starbucks names date for return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and other new menu items

The Pumpkin Spice Latte will be back soon, along with a host of new autumnal desserts

Starbucks is set to bring back one of their most popular seasonal drinks, alongside a whole host of new menu items including Pumpkin Spice cookies.

The Pumpkin Spice Latte and the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino drinks will be back in Starbucks stores for a limited time from 2 September.

The iconic autumnal drinks will return next week and UK customers will for the first time be able to add Starbucks Original Nut Blend to their chosen beverage for added flavour.

The drinks will be available at all Starbucks stores across the UK, either in store or delivered via Uber Eats and Just Eat from more than 550 locations

However, real lovers of the Pumpkin Spice Latte should keep their eyes on the Starbucks app, for details on early availability at select stores.

Starbucks app users can also order using the app to skip the queue and place their order to takeaway from their nearest store.

What drinks will be added to the menu?

The original Pumpkin Spice Latte is a combination of Espresso Roast, pumpkin pie flavoured sauce and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices, available from £3.55, with the blended Frappucino version available for £3.65.

Vegan versions of both drinks are available with dairy alternatives and vegan whipped topping.

Now thanks to Starbucks’ sustainability pledge you can get 25p off a PSL or other drink order by bringing your own reusable cup.

Starbucks is also urging customers who are “feeling pump-ed up for the return of PSL” to share their “PSL moments” online via Instragram.

Originally introduced 18 years ago, the Pumpkin Spice Latte - or PSL - has become a cultural sensation and is widely associated with the onset of autumn.

Starbucks says: “The first of its kind, the PSL is the product of numerous Goldilocks-style tests - including pumpkin pies, fresh pumpkins, tinned pumpkin and all manner of spices - the team managed to find a unique and original final formulation that was just right.

“Since then, the beloved icon has grown in popularity year on year, becoming one of the most popular Starbucks seasonal beverages around the world.”

What about food items?

Alongside these old favourites, Starbucks will introduce a number of new meals and desserts, including several vegan options.

From 2 September customers will be able to order the new plant-based meatball marinara wrap; a brie, butternut and chutney focaccia sandwich; and mac and cheese with kale and peas.

Each meal is vegetarian friendly and will be available from less than £5.

Starbucks will also bring in a number of new seasonal sweet treats, including a Pumpkin Spice cookie and S’mores brownie blondie.

A new cherry and white chocolate cupcake will also be available, plus an almond croissant, “topped with toasted flaked almonds and a dusting of powdered sugar”.

The desserts will be priced from between £1.59 to £2.09.
