Fall is coming a little bit earlier this year. At least, according to Starbucks.
According to a Starbucks spokesperson, the coffeemaker is bringing back the popular hot drink later this month. The "official" return date for the Pumpkin Spice Latte is September 2, but certain customers will be able to gain early access as soon as August 25. No word on if the seasons will also be changing earlier, but we'll get our sweaters and scarves out of the closet just in case.
18 days until I’m back from vacay. Get ready to “fall” in love all over again. 😘 #seewhatididthere

As Foodbeast pointed out, summer doesn't officially end until September 23, but we're sure the cult-like following around Pumpkin Spice Lattes won't mind the weather at all. Employees have been posting pics of the syrup on twitter, and Jimmy Fallon even announced the good news in his opening monologue last night.
Rumor has it that certain stores are already pouring the drinks, but for now we can simply confirm that the syrup has been sent to most Starbucks stores. In "colder" news, we've also heard that Starbucks is going to try out cold-brewed iced coffee this year, a first for the chain.
In the meantime, enjoy some of the greatest Pumpkin Spice Latte tweets we've rounded up this morning:

It's coming...time for women to lose their minds and men to make public appearances in pajamas. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is a month early.
