It’s Fall – or as some call it – Pumpkin Spice Latte season! A season of flavors including apple, caramel and cinnamon. The Pumpkin Spice Latte or PSL has been particularly loved for almost 20 years, launching at Starbucks in 2003. Since then, an estimated 424 million have been sold according to CNBC reports. The drink is also viral, with over 500,000 posts tagged with #PumpkinSpiceLatte and 1.2 million posts tagged with #PSL according to Marketplace.org in 2019.  

Locally, coffee shops and bars around the area are featuring fall-inspired drinks – including the beloved PSL. With Fall in full swing, here are the places you can enjoy a seasonal drink in Flint & Genesee.
