Pumpkin Spice Lattes Hooray!

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.


  1. OH MY GOSH!!!! It is soooo my fave! I have fits when I see it on the sign. Our Target has Stars in it also and it opened when I was expecting number 4. I got soooo many coffees one time the Starbucks girl asked me if I shopped at Target or just came by for coffee....we were on a first name basis by the time my daughter was born, LOL!!

  2. That is my all time fave!! Oh Goodie Goodie....I have to go to the airport tomorrow to pick up Hubby so I'll have to run through the drive thru and get one! I bet they'll make one early if I BEG.


  3. I'm pumped for the caramel apple spice! Pretty sure they offer it year round now, but I only crave it in Fall and Winter. How awful to be teased like that, with the PSL! (Pretty funny, though.) :)
