The drink that launched 1,000 memes—Starbucks’ infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL)—turns 19 this year, and the pumpkin spice trend shows no signs of slowing down. According to rumors, the drink will make its triumphant return on Aug. 30 along with the return of the delicious Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. (We’re calling it now; this iced reincarnation is going to surpass the PSL in popularity.)
The fall drink has inspired a plethora of pumpkin-spiced goods, both edible and inedible, including rival drinks at Dunkin’, Peet’s Coffee and McCafé. Although some people eagerly await all year for the pumpkin-inspired goodies, others love to hate on the trend.
Wherever you land on the spectrum, we scoured the internet to bring you the most interesting pumpkin spice products—from moderately shocking to downright outrageous—that we secretly can’t wait to try.
