In order to get your hands on a latte today, patrons are taking to their phones in a desperate attempt to solve the final clue Starbucks unveiled Monday afternoon.
There's been a little confusion over when the drink would actually return, but a Starbucks spokesperson confirmed that PSLs would be available as early as today if all the clues were solved, translating to an "unlocked" Starbucks. In their own words:
On Tuesday morning, August 26, customers who show the PSL password (or say it) to a barista in their local Starbucks store will “unlock” the beverage early, making the seasonal latte available to everyone who visits the store. The first customer who unlocks a store will be acknowledged by having his or her name displayed on an in-store sign. Fans may unlock as many stores as they’d like.
Keep up your coverage by following @TheRealPSL for more information, and we suggest that you start lining up outside of Starbucks NOW.

It's so chilly and autumnal out, I want to put on a flannel shirt, jump in a leaf pile, and not order a pumpkin spice latte.

Happy talk about pumpkin spice lattes. Halloween costume stores already open. People are done with this summer, I guess?

As if I have to wait until September 3rd until I can get a Pumpkin Spice Latte! Why isn't Canada allowed to have nice things?
