Pumpkin Spice Lattes Are Back And People Are Both Excited And Angry

"Which one of the Spice Girls is that?"

Posted on

In case you hadn't heard Starbucks's Pumpkin Spice Latte returned today — which means it's officially the first day of fall (and don't tell me, "No, September 22 is the ACTUAL first day of fall" because, frankly, IDC what ~science~ has to say).

And, obviously, people being the gems that they are, were VERY excited about the news and there were some pretty A+++ reactions on Twitter, too:

1. For example, some people were all about risking their lives for that PSL:

Everyone named Becky today, rushing to get a #PumpkinSpiceLatte:

2. Seriously:

me driving to starbucks at 5am on august 28th to get a pumpkin spice latte

3. And others DGAF about haters:

,~~~, \ •_•/ \_ / 🎃 ,~~~, \ •_•/>⌐■-■ \_ /🎃 ,~~~, ⌐■_■ \_ /🎃 i m back haters . . . ~~~ ■_■🖕🏻 \_ / 🎃 #psl

4. Some people were ready to bury summer six feet under:

STARBUCKS STARTS SELLING PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES TODAY. THAT’S IT. SUMMER’S OVER. PUT AWAY YOUR BATHING SUITS & SUNSCREEN AND START GIVING ME HAYRIDES, HORROR MOVIES & FRESHLY PICKED APPLES. IT’S FALL. #PumpkinSpiceLatte

5. Others were worried they missed the best day of the year:

Me: [runs to the window in sleeping robe, throws it open] You there! Young urchin child! What day is it? Urchin: [surprised] why it's the first day of pumpkin spice season ma'am! Me: I haven't missed it!

6. Heck, even, cats gave us their two cents:

I don’t get the human obsession with the #PumpkinSpiceLatte. It’s not like it’s special or unique. It makes the same sound when it hits the floor as any other latte does when pushed off the counter.

7. Hospitals made "questionable" choices:

8. A few were willing to brave the heat for their one true love:

My yoga pants and Uggs are a little hot in 90 degree weather but I want my #PumpkinSpiceLatte to know I’ll do anything for love.

9. Some people gave sound advice:

Please don’t call 911 if this happens to you. 😭 #PumpkinSpiceLatte

10. Brands even got in on the fun:

11. Although, how dare you:

| ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄| It's too early for pumpkin spice |___________| (\__/) || (•ㅅ•) || /   づ

12. Others were just out of the loop:

Her: OMG!!! They're bringing back Pumpkin Spice Latte! Me: Which one of the Spice Girls is that?

13. But not the ~fourth~ wiseman:

Little known fact: There was actually a fourth wisemen, he brought pumpkin spice and everyone hated him

14. Or this "actually" person:

Asylum nurse, tightening my restraints: He keeps yelling that pumpkin spice is not a spice.

15. But, mainly, people were willing to throw it all away for their beloved PSL:

me sipping on a pumpkin spiced latte tomorrow when I don’t have enough money to survive the month

16. Except for maybe Cortney:

@cortknee412 The pumpkin spice latte contains real pumpkin, Cortney!
