Bust out those UGGS early- b/c Pumpkin Spice Latte and cinnamon nutmeg shots have been fired...
Too soon- way too soon. 7-Eleven has already announced and rolled out this fall coffee favorite, and they've launched it about a month before Starbucks and other coffee chains. It's like when Christmas decorations go on sale before Halloween, well Pumpkin Spice coffee drinks are creepin the same way.
On Aug. 1, 7-Eleven announced they had beat every other fall flavor-furnishing chain by releasing its suite of pumpkin spice beverages a full month and 23 days before autumn officially begins.
“Fall flavor fanatics rejoice! It may be the first day of August but the fall flavors are already here. 7-Eleven, Inc., is rolling out the seasonal favorites earlier than ever this year,” wrote 7-Eleven in a press release, adding that customers can enjoy the chain’s “beloved” Pumpkin Spice Lattes and more at participating 7-Eleven, Speedway and Stripes stores across the country — and with more than 10,000 of them across the country, that’s a whole lotta pumpkin dust.
Additionally, the 7-Eleven homepage seems to acknowledge how early this is to be breaking out your fall playlist complete with tracks from Taylor Swift’s “Folklore,” Ella Fitzgerald and Ben Folds. “Too soon? Too late. We’re taking the lead in manifesting cooler days. Sorry ‘bout it,” reads the site.
Available now through Oct. 31, the 59-year-old chain has multiple fall drinks available.
