School is about to begin, the weather has been cooling off, and pumpkin spice lattes are on the way! Fall is almost here, baby!

Starbucks announced yesterday that they are ringing in the fall season next week by launching their most popular seasonal beverage: the Pumpkin Spice Latte. According to the official tweet, the beverage will return to shops nationwide next Tuesday, August 27th. They are also offering a new pumpkin spice creamer that's available in grocery stores.

If you simply can't wait that long, you'll be happy to know that Dunkin' will launch their fall line of items TODAY! That's according to USA Today, who reports that "Pumpkin Flavored Coffee, K-Cup Pods, pumpkin doughnut, muffins, and Munchkins donut holes are returning, along with the new Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte, Apple Cider Donut, and Munchkins. Pumpkin flavor swirl can be added to hot, iced coffee, Cold Brew, espresso drinks, frozen coffee, and frozen chocolate."

I know pumpkin spice-flavored food and beverages get a lot of hate, but I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a fan. I will try just about anything with the fall flavor... except maybe Pumpkin Spice Spam. That's just wrong.
