For some people, autumn doesn’t exist without the presence of a pumpkin spiced latte.
Thankfully, today Starbucks Ireland has officially kicked off autumn by announcing the return of the PSL. If you haven’t tried it, a PSL is a hot drink that consists of an espresso, milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg and topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices.

The cinnamon drink, which became popular in the late noughties and has sold over 200 million units from 2003 until 2015, isn’t to everyone’s taste and is often considered a bit of a ‘basic’ drink:
I’m a girl. I am white. I have never had a pumpkin spiced latte.

I’m craving a pumpkin spiced latte with a pumpkin scone whilst a cinnamon pumpkin candle burns nearby.
My name is Keith and I’m a basic white girl.

Am I the only one that’s never had a pumpkin spiced latte and also has no desire to do so?

Just bought my dog a pumpkin spiced latte flavored probiotic to help with his food allergies. Pretty sure there are at least a dozen memes that exist to make fun of ppl like me #basic

Are we really still shaming people for liking pumpkin spice? Let them have it already. If they’re still fans after years of meme abuse, they deserve to have their autumnal spiced beverage in peace
