DENVER — Autumn has arrived at Starbucks.
Starbucks has released its menu of fall signature drinks, including the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Since its 2003 debut, the drink remains Starbucks' most popular seasonal beverage and has launched an entire industry of pumpkin flavored products.
The PSL and the entire Starbucks fall menu will arrive at stores in the United States and Canada on Thursday, Aug. 24.

This is the Pumpkin Spice Latte's 20th year on top of Starbucks' fall menu, and is available hot, iced or blended.
The Pumpkin Cream Cold Cold Brew is also returning for its fifth year. Starbucks noted 75% of its beverages are sold cold.
Starbucks also announced the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato is back on the fall menu for its third year.
Two new additions have made the fall menu at Starbucks. The Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Shaken Espresso combines Starbucks Blonde Espresso with notes of apple, cinnamon and brown sugar and is topped with oatmilk.
“The warm, gooey taste of apple crisp paired with a cup of coffee meld perfectly to unveil a cozy beverage customers have come to know and love at Starbucks each fall,” said Starbucks beverage developer Billy Altieri.
The new Iced Pumpkin Cream Chai Tea Latte was inspired by a customer and barista customization and pairs a blend of spiced chai with pumpkin cream cold foam and a dusting of pumpkin spice.
“We’re excited to celebrate the creativity of our baristas and customers by offering the Iced Pumpkin Cream Chai Tea Latte on the official fall menu. The warm spice flavors of chai and pumpkin seamlessly blend together, creating a creamy and comforting iced beverage,” said Altieri.
A new Baked Apple Croissant is made with layers of croissant dough wrapped around a warm apple filling, topped with sugar and baked.
Returning seasonal bakery items include the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin, Owl Cake Pop, and Pumpkin & Pepita Loaf.
Starbucks is also releasing pumpkin spice-flavored ground, packaged, and ready-to-drink products at grocery stores including the returning Iced Espresso Pumpkin Spice Latte, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Chilled Coffee Drink and more.
