The fall season is about to begin, so it means Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte will reemerge. The coffee giant has recently announced their favorite drink's release, and it will be only a couple of days before it comes out. But aside from the known coffee company, there are also other brands and food that are about to introduce their version of the autumn flavor.

Starbucks started teasing the release of Pumpkin Spice Latte earlier this month with a series of riddle posts on the Leaf Raker's Society Facebook group, per Bustle. There was a puzzle released once a week for three weeks that carried a solution that turned out to be a number.

When the whole numbers that were dropped were put together, it would reveal a date that read 8/27. Hence, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte would be out on Aug. 27. The brand, on the other hand, confirmed the news on the Facebook group with one final post before it tweeted the official release date publicly.

The drink will return to the participating stores for a limited time only, starting on the said date. Fans can also try a whole bunch of Pumpkin Spice products available at the grocery store.

However, for coffee drinkers who want to have the taste of Pumpkin Spice Latte as early as now, Dunkin' Donuts already released their version of the drink on Aug. 21. It is available at its locations nationwide. It also launched a new fall lineup and other new and returning items.

It is earlier than its 2018 release and Starbucks', which started the pumpkin craze 16 years ago. Last year, the brand giant unveiled the drink on Aug. 28, which was dubbed to be the day of Pumpkinox.

Aside from the drink, Starbucks also introduced a new Pumpkin Spice creamer that pumpkin-spice lovers can buy from the grocery stores. However, it is also only available for a limited time only and is part of its new line of creamers with Nestle, according to The Tennessean.

Spam will also have its version of this seasonal flavor. The brand now joins the trend and is set to introduce pumpkin-flavored meat in a can this fall.

Thomas' Pumpkin Spice English Muffins and bagels already set its release on Sept. 10. It was the same date that it dropped the seasonal food in stores last year. Pillsbury Grands! Pumpkin Spice Sweet Rolls and other Pillsbury pumpkin products, alternatively, can now be bought at any stores. More pumpkin flavors and announcements are expected to be out soon as it will also dominate restaurant menus in a few weeks.
