Dunkin Donuts just announced its fall menu, which includes the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and coffee-lovers are now wondering when the iconic drink will be returning to Starbucks.
The coffee and donut chain’s fall menu will be available from Thursday, August 17 and includes a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, Pumpkin Spice Signature Latte and Nutty Pumpkin Coffee.
As well as that, there are some autumn-inspired food options too, like the Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast Sandwich, Glazed Pumpkin Cake Donut and Pumpkin Muffin.
The news has excited pumpkin spice fans across America, but nothing will ever beat the original Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) that Starbucks created.
Unfortunately, the chain hasn’t revealed a specific date that the menu item will be returning yet, but there are some rumours flooding the internet.

Pumpkin Spice Latte rumoured return date
There has been no confirmation from Starbucks, but an Instagram food blogger called Markie Devo claims that the Pumpkin Spice Latte will return on August 30.
On July 27, he shared a photo of the fall menu and said “Starbucks Fall Menu starts 8/30!!” and the post quickly went viral.
As it is an autumn drink, many often assume that it won’t return until September or October, but that’s not actually the case.
In 2021, the much-loved coffee drink returned to Starbucks on August 24, so we can expect it to be around this time again in 2022.
The August 30 return date certainly seems feasible, but until there’s an official announcement from the coffee chain, we won’t know for sure.
The famous PSL usually stays on the menu until just after Halloween and is removed at the start of November when Christmas drinks then arrive.
The rumoured fall menu is mouth watering
In the same post, the Instagram user revealed the rumoured Starbucks fall menu which includes an incredible bunch of drinks and bakery items.
The rumoured drinks are:
- Pumpkin Spice Latte
- Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
- Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato
Here are the rumoured food options:
- Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin
- Pumpkin Scone
- Owl Cake Pop
Most of those menu items are returning from last year, but if the Owl Cake Pop rumours are true, that will be a new bakery option for 2022.
As well as that, Markie Devo claims that a Chai Tea Latte and Iced Chai Tea Latte will be added to the menu on August 30.
He also added that the iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte will be increasing in price by 80 cents, but again, this hasn’t been confirmed.
