According to multiple posts from Starbucks employees on the /r/ Starbucks subreddit, the iconic fall beverage that started it all may be a bit coming sooner than you think. On Friday, a user by the name of AppKerman posted a photo of a giant jug of Pumpkin Spice flavored sauce and captioned, “It’s coming, God help us all.” The top comment on the photo added, “August 11th, 2017 1:09pm EST Pumpkin spice logged and confirmed. Halloween is 81 days away, Thanksgiving is 104. Whys is this here so early…..” Another user catheadotornado,wrote a separate post on Tuesday and said, “So we have pumpkin spice now…and I’m pretty pumped. Anyone else have PS super early?” The top comment on the recent post from enzrhyme said, “We have it, but a note to everyone in case they aren’t aware – we CANNOT sell it until September 5th.” Another commenter Javagirl2015 added, “It’s in the house!!” FROM PEN: Make Marshmallow-Stuffed Hot Cocoa Cookies Yep, you read it friends, it’s in the house.
