Starbucks Begins Pumpkin Spice Latte Craze

Each fall, when the leaves start changing their colors and they fall, forming lovely carpets on the streets, something else happens. With the chilly weather outside, you need a beverage to keep you warm and cozy. This is why, every fall, Starbucks introduces its famous and highly popular Pumpkin Spice Latte. And this year is no different. The flavored beverage officially became available on September 5. However, if you want to have one, you’ll have to hurry a bit. With its growing popularity and limited time at Starbucks, you may not get a taste of it this fall. And that would really be a shame.

The Pumpkin Spice craze

However, you should already know by now that Starbucks are not the only ones releasing pumpkin spice-flavored products. Nowadays, there are all sorts of foods which have this flavor and are waiting to be tasted. This trend has become so popular that it even started annoying some people, especially those who simply don’t like this flavor. This is a horrible time for them because they’ll have to search thoroughly in order to find a bag of Oreos which are not pumpkin-flavored. And this goes for almost everything else. From coffee, to sweets, milk, candles and even room fresheners.

However, for those who love this flavor, this is a time of joy and happiness. And it surely begins when you have a Pumpkin Spice Latte in your hands. However, some people have complained about companies forcing the issue and releasing those products a bit too early to gain as much profit as possible. And they are right. It’s not nice to walk around in the hot sun in the month of August and to suddenly see something that’s clearly reminiscent of fall.

Still, this probably won’t stop people from releasing more and more pumpkin spice flavored things. Let’s just hope they’ll live dog and cat food alone this time.
