I am so over this heat. 106 degrees is not an ideal temperature when you're trying to take a nap. I just want it to be fall already! I want a crisp air, fall leaves and to be able to wear my cute sweaters. Most of all, I want my pumpkin spice latte!

Luckily for those of us who long for a chill in the air, we can celebrate an early autumn with some pumpkin spice products! Dunkin' (formerly Dunkin' Donuts) will be releasing their fall menu early. Starbucks will also be starting their pumpkin spice season a littler early- for those of us desperate for a change during this pandemic! On Wednesday, August 19, Dunkin' will release a new chai latte, signature pumpkin spice latte and three new snacks.

Starbucks hasn't really released their official launch date but rumors suggest that PSL will be here before Labor Day. A launch date of August 28th was shared in a memo with Business Insider ensuring that our pumpkin spice season is just around the corner.

Of course, for those of us in the Sun City we know that just because it's September and pumpkin spice fills the air, doesn't guarantee that we'll get cooler weather. Which means, I'll have to take my PSL iced. Luckily for me, and because we're in a pandemic, a new product will be coming along to help keep me cool and still make it feel like fall; a pumpkin spice hard seltzer! VIVE will release a pumpkin spice seltzer in September. It'll only be available in Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee to start but will probably expand nationwide if there's enough demand. In the meantime, I'll have to keep my AC blasting and dream of my PSL.
