The wait is over! Starbucks fans can look forward to enjoying the most iconic Starbucks seasonal beverage, the Pumpkin Spice Latte in South Africa this month! Making its South African debut this spring, the seasonal treat can only be enjoyed at Starbucks for a select period of the year. In America it is of course, during the winter time (or the festive season) but for us the festive season falls in summer so we get to enjoy it while the sun is out!

If you’re yet to hear about the famed Pumpkin Spice Latte then you must know that is has achieved somewhat legendary status in the United States. Starbucks fans wait the whole year for PSL season and for them, and us down here in Sunny SA, the time has arrived!

According to Starbucks, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is a perfectly handcrafted espresso beverage infused with pumpkin spice, creamy steamed milk, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove. The drink is finished with whipped cream and pumpkin spice topping. Of course, since it’s summer here you can also get a cooler version of the drink! If you fancy a cool drink on a warm spring day, try the Pumpkin Spice Latte Frappuccino and cheers to festive cheer!

The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte will be available from 1 September 2016 from Starbucks stores in Rosebank and Mall of Africa.
