Yesterday I had to run to town to get a few things. I hardly ever get to go to Target because it's about an hour from my house... so I can't just pop in real quick. But I had to be near Target, so of course I seized the opportunity. Our Target has a Starbucks inside, does yours? Anyway, as much as I love Target shopping I also love me some Starbucks... but let's be specific... I love Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes, hot or cold. How can you beat that taste of pumpkin pie, whipped cream and a cup of coffee all together in one cup? It's magic. So, long story short, as I was checking out from my Target experience yesterday, a girl came by with a tray full of samples of PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES! She asked if I wanted to try one... of course I did! You know they only have that flavor fall through Christmas? Oh how I had missed that yummy goodness! So as soon as I had slurped ever droplet from the little cup (I wanted to lick it out but resisted... something about you can take the girl out of the country but not the....) I headed over to the Starbucks counter to order the full sized version of my mini delight. I hopped right up, gave the girl my order and smiled from the knowledge that Pumpkin Spice was BACK! " Sorry, we don't start serving that until Monday." she said. "Why then are you giving out samples today?!" I said. "We want you to be excited about the flavor." She said. Well whoop-te-do! I was excited and then denied. The good news though, all you PSL aficionados out there... you can have one... on Monday.
