The pumpkin spice flavor seems to arrive earlier every year. August has turned into the new September, as retailers across the country look to get the flavor to consumers quicker than ever.

That seems to be especially true for coffee giant Starbucks. It is rumored that the Pumpkin Spice Latte will make its return to the menu on August 28 this year. That’s over a week earlier than in 2017, when it came out on September 5.

While the beverage announcement hasn’t been made just yet, a private fan group of the beverage has indicated that the pumpkin spice syrup has already arrive in many stores. Business Insider reported the specific return date after viewing internal documents regarding Starbucks' fall menu.

According to the documents, Starbucks also plans to bring back the Salted Caramel Mocha and the Teavana Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte, which was first introduced last year. There are also new beverages being teased, including Cold Foam Dark Cocoa Nitro and the Iced Maple Pecan Latte with Cold Foam.

It remains to be seen when these beverages will officially join the menu, but an announcement should arrive in the coming weeks as we approach the end of the month.
