Get ready to make your next coffee run a cozy one, because Dunkin' is releasing a new iteration of the hallowed pumpkin spice latte. Of course, the chain has previously offered pumpkin-flavored coffee, but Dunkin's new Signature Pumpkin Spice Latte for fall 2020 appears to be the first official PSL from the company, and it's rolling out so soon. Here's everything you need to know about Dunkin's latest foray into PSL territory.
In 2019, Dunkin' offered customers a new Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte made with pumpkin and cinnamon flavors, and it brought back the fan-favorite pumpkin flavor swirl, which first debuted in 2007 as the perfect addition to almost any Dunkin' sip. But there was no official PSL to be found on your Dunkin' run. Now, the chain is upping the ante with its first-ever Signature Pumpkin Spice Latte. The chain's PSL aims to elevate your go-to combination of pumpkin and cinnamon by combining espresso with pumpkin and vanilla flavoring. On top, a layer of whipped cream is crowned by drizzles of caramel and a dusting of cinnamon sugar.
The beverage can be ordered either hot or iced to let you adjust to fickle late summer weather, which is perfect as the PSL will be rolling out sooner than ever before on Wednesday, Aug. 19, along with the rest of the chain's fall sips and bites. A small hot PSL will clock in at $3.29, while you can expect to pay $3.79 for an iced variety.
In addition to the new PSL, Dunkin' is bringing back its pumpkin flavor swirl, which you can add to everything from regular coffee to frozen chocolate. Tea lovers will be thrilled with Dunkin's new Chai Latte, which starts with a chai tea blend that's lightly sweetened and combined with milk and a spiced mixture of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom. As for the fall eats, pumpkin-flavored donuts, Munchkins, and muffins are also making a comeback, along with Apple Cider Donuts and Munchkins and the Maple Sugar Bacon Breakfast Sandwich.
