Autumn is the season of back to school, fall fashion trends and one more (sweet and delicious) thing. While the first official day of fall according to the Farmer鈥檚 Almanac is September 23 this year, true PSL-lovers mark it by the return of our drink of choice on the Starbucks menu. (PSL-haters can scatter. There鈥檚 no room for you here.) This fall, you鈥檙e going to find that your PSL isn鈥檛 quite like it was before. IT鈥橲 GOING TO BE BETTER.


While all the old suspects will be back, like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and creamy milk, there鈥檚 going to be a new addition (and a couple of subtractions) that will get fans stoked. Starbucks announced Monday via their blog that they鈥檙e losing the caramel coloring and adding real pumpkin puree to their iconic drink. According to CNN, the coffee company is also making the move to eliminate 鈥渁rtificial flavors鈥 from the beloved latte.

The official Pumpkin Spice Latte鈥檚 account also wrote about the major change in this hilarious tweet. If you don鈥檛 follow @TheRealPSL yet, you should. It鈥檚 a gas. There鈥檚 no word yet on when the official launch date of the new and improved pumpkin spice latte, but we know last year, it made its return to menus on September 2. We鈥檙e guessing we鈥檒l see its first appearance a little sooner than that in 2015.

UPDATE: @TheRealPSL will be on vacay til September鈥 Can we count on you 9/1, PSL?! <3 <3 <3

Everyone, be on the lookout.
