The novel coronavirus won’t stop us from enjoying one of the sweet joys of life as Dunkin’ plans on launching its Pumpkin Spice Lattes early this year.

Thanks to Dunkin’ we won’t have to wait too long for our Pumpkin Spice Lattes because they are coming this week – August 19th to be exact.

With the ongoing pandemic, the extreme heatwave rolling through the country, and an overall stressful year thus far, it’s nice to have something to look forward to, even if it is something as simple as a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

This year marks the earliest recorded launch of the seasonal drink which usually takes place in September. This year, Dunkin’ decided to launch early because it wanted to give customers some comfort and familiarity during a time of uncertainty. In the meantime, Starbucks which usually launches the seasonal flavor right around Labor Day is slated to release its Pumpkin Spice everything on August 25, but they have yet to make a formal announcement.

Dunkin’ posted on Twitter, “Whether you’re sipping, swirling, or tasting – the Fall legend is back in class, starting 8/19.”
