Pumpkin Spice Lattes Aren't On The Starbucks Menu Yet, But You Can Get One If You Ask

Fans of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes may not be as rabid as McRib worshipers, but that’s probably because the seasonal beverage comes around for a short time every year before being heartlessly taken away until the next autumn. The drink isn’t scheduled to go on sale until next week but the scuttlebutt is that you can get one now if you just ask for it.

The folks at StarbucksGossip.com discovered this after they posted a Tweet from Starbucks saying that people in Chicago and Calgary could enjoy the PSL early. But almost immediately, Starbucks staffers and fans from around the country began chiming in that they were able to score the drink ahead of time.

That would make the Pumpkin Spice Latte a temporary addition to our Secret Menu Item list.
