The only thing that makes saying goodbye to summer is knowing your favorite fall sips are right around the corner, so if you’re already starting to feel the end-of-summer blues, you probably want to know what drinks Starbucks has lined up for autumn. Starbucks stans know the coffee giant doesn’t announce its fall flavors until the end of August, but if you’re looking for some ~tea~ to hold you over until then, I’ve got the scoop on Starbucks’ ready-to-drink fall items, including a Nitro Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew can you can sip wherever you’re headed.
If you’re someone who needs a cup of coffee to hold you over until you make your morning coffee run (guilty), you’re probably familiar with Starbucks’ lineup of ready-to-drink brews and Frappucinos. ICYDK, Starbucks’ ready-to-drink (or RTD) coffees can be found at various grocery stores nationwide, and are basically like the clutch cuppa you’d get from the restaurant minus the line. Much like the sips you’d find at the cafés, Starbucks’ RTD coffees come in specialty seasonal flavors, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on your trusty cup of PSL during a morning spent snuggled up in bed with your pet.
If you’re planning to stock up on your RTD beverages before the temperature drops, Instagrammer @markie_devo previewed a Nitro Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew can on July 11, and it looks like the ultimate fall sip. About a month later, on Aug. 9, Starbucks announced the full fall at-home lineup, and the Nitro Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew can is now available in grocery stores (!!!).
Also included the early PSL celebration are Starbucks Ground Pumpkin Spice Coffee packages and K-Cups as well as Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Concentrate and and Iced Espresso Pumpkin Spice Latte Bottle. But the much-loved gourd isn’t the only flavor profile in the lineup. New for 2022 are Starbucks’ Salted Caramel Mocha Ground Coffee and K-Cups. Ya know, for when your PSL is getting a little basic (I’m sorry, but sometimes it happens!).
Even though Starbucks’ at-home fall sips are on shelves as of Aug. 9, you’ll still have to wait for the PSL and pumpkin-y cold brew in cafes. It shouldn’t be too long, though, since the PSL usually returns to stores in late August. The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew debuted in stores in 2019, and this canned version looks like it’ll be the perfect option when you want that hint of fall in your morning cup but can’t get to your local ‘Bucks. It might not be an exact match without cold foam, but the nitro aspect of the can should give you a similar creamy consistency. *Adds to cart.*
