Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte collection is hitting grocery stores


Pumpkin Spice Latte fans can rejoice, as Starbucks is releasing a variety collection of products to grocery stores inspired by the mega-popular drink.

Starbucks fans who love the Pumpkin Spice Latte can soon get their fix by visiting the nearest grocery store thanks to a new collection of products inspired by the flavor.

This news comes from the Starbucks blog, and the collection will consist of eight items, led by the Pumpkin Spice Creamer, which features pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors and comes in a 28 ounce bottle for $4.99. (Prices quoted are suggested by the company, actual prices may vary.)

Pumpkin spice flavored ground coffee is also available in a light roast, with a 10 ounce bag selling for $9.99.

If K-Cups are more your style, then those are covered as well. There’s a pumpkin spice flavored ground coffee with a 10-count retailing for $9.99 or a 16-count for $12.99, or a PSL variety with a dash of creamy milk in a 6-count for $9.99 or a 9-count for $12.99.

There’s also a PSL for the VIA Instant variety, with a 5-count going for $5.49, and since cookies go great with a jolt of caffeine, pumpkin spice Cookie Straws come in a box of 20 for $6.99, which feature white chocolate with a hint of pumpkin spice inside a roller wafer cookie.

There are also two ready-to-drink items to finish out the collection in the Ready-To-Drink PSL, which blends milk and the familiar tastes of cinnamon and nutmeg with the addition of cloves espresso for an extra kick, coming in a 14-ounce bottle for $2.93.

If a single serving just isn’t enough, then there’s the Iced Espresso Classics PSL, which comes in a 40-ounce several-serving bottle for $4.99, perfect for sharing with friends and family.

While personally I think the Pumpkin Spice Latte itself can be a little overwhelming, the PSL Creamer seems like a good option to enliven homemade coffee, and the Iced Espresso bottle seems like the best deal.

The PSL was introduced in fall 2003, going nationwide a year later, and has since risen to become the chain’s best-selling seasonal drink according to Forbes (certainly more so than the Juniper Latte), possibly because of its status as a “basic” drink that promotes the nostalgia of pumpkin, which represents a spirit of perseverance, according to a history of pumpkin spice from Scientific American.
