Somehow, it’s the middle of August, which means pretty soon leaves will be falling from trees and tears will be falling from your eyes. But before you get too sad, try to remember that there are good things about the changing seasons. For example, comfort food and Thanksgiving, apple picking, and let’s not forget pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING. One fast-food chain is accelerating the timetable and offering pumpkin spice lattes beginning in August!
McDonald’s announced that the famed McCafe Pumpkin Spice Latte will be available nationwide beginning Aug. 31. This is a full week earlier than Starbucks released their pumpkin spice latte last year, so they’re obviously beefing. Another chain, Peet’s Coffee, is following in McDonald’s footsteps to gain a leg up on the competition and will start selling dark chocolate pumpkin mocha on the 31st as well.
