After it was rumored that Starbucks would be bringing back its pumpkin products sooner than ever, the coffee giant has officially confirmed the return date for Tuesday, August 27.
That day, the iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte will be available on the menu. Joining the PSL is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, the first new pumpkin coffee beverage to join the Starbucks menu in 16 years. These beverages will be available in the U.S. and Canada for a limited time throughout the fall, along with other seasonal items.
After testing several variations of the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew beverage, the Starbucks R&D team settled on a recipe that uses Starbucks Cold Brew and vanilla, topped with pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of pumpkin spice topping.
“With customer excitement for PSL sweeping the nation each fall, we wanted to create a new beverage that combines two of our customers’ favorite things, pumpkin spices and cold brew,” says Matthew Thornton from Starbucks beverage R&D team. “With each sip of Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, you’ll enjoy the familiar, creamy, flavor of pumpkin spice followed by a refreshing taste of cold brew, for a cool beverage that will have you wishing it was fall all year long.”
