20 Wacky Things to Buy If You're Obsessed With Pumpkin Spice
It may not feel like fall, but pumpkin spice is everywhere, and we don't hate it.
Fall's arrival can always be measured not by the autumnal equinox or the start of school but by the release of the coveted Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. This year, the chain surprised everyone with an earlier-than-ever launch date of August 28 in stores around the country. Not to be outdone, Dunkin' came out a week earlier (August 21!) with their pumpkin-centric menu including a Pumpkin Spice Donut and a Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte, considered the PSL's newest rival. I mean, I guess I can drink a PSL by the pool in 90-degree heat? No matter the extreme temperatures, it's officially time to say goodbye to Hot Girl Summer and embrace Hot Gourd Fall or Angsty Autumn or Cozy Girl Fall — whatever you need to sip your PSL in confidence.
And if you just can't get enough PSL, limited-edition pumpkin spice products, from dish soap to Cheerios, are already hitting the shelves of your favorite stores. Pumpkin spice aftershave? Color us intrigued.
