Fall is upon us. And fall marks the arrival of the heralded, beloved pumpkin spice latte.

The pumpkin spice latte was born in 2003, when it made its first public debut in a Starbucks in D.C. It sure has grown up a lot since then. The Real PSL now has it’s own Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, where you can actually chat with it.
