Earlier this year, members of the autumn-themed Leaf Rakers Society Facebook group speculated that this year’s #PSL would return on August 27, and in an email to The Daily Meal, a Starbucks spokesperson confirmed the rumor. The limited-time-only espresso-based drink will return to outposts in the U.S. and Canada earlier than ever, one day prior to last year’s August 28 rerelease.
