Fall is the best time of the year. 

There are plenty of reasons to get excited for fall. Whether you’re ready to snuggle into your favorite sweater or you’re anxious to pre-plan your holiday activities, fall has characteristics that can truly warm your heart.

No matter what it is that you love about the season, there’s one thing that everyone can agree on: The best thing about fall is that Starbucks finally releases its seasonal pumpkin spice latte! We believe this calls for a countdown.

It doesn’t matter how you take your coffee, because it’s hard to argue against the delicious taste of the pumpkin spice latte. This delectable drink includes the trifecta of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. These three ingredients are mixed with creamy milk and pumpkin pie spices and topped with whipped cream. Additionally, this year the PSL will be made with real pumpkin. Count us in!

The combination of these ingredients is good enough, but there’s more. This tasty treat is only available for a limited time, and its release date is in the fall. According to NBC News, the release date for the PSL is projected to be September 8th, 2015!

Apparently, everyone loves this drink as much as we do. According to Starbucks, there have been over 29,000 tweets that have featured the hash tag #PumpkinSpice since August of 2012.

What will you do to celebrate the release of the pumpkin spice latte? How are you going to spend your days counting down?
