Each year as August winds to a close, many wait for Starbucks to release their fall drinks. And of course, that includes the famous (or infamous?) Pumpkin Spice Latte. And 2022 is no different.

In-store fall options
Of course, the Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) is back, but with a price jump. The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew is back as it now rivals the latte as the most popular fall drink.
Surprisingly, the Apple Crisp Macchiato is returning for 2022 but with a few changes. It will now come standard with oat milk and blonde espresso, so it’s now officially called the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato.
Starbucks beverage developer, Harvey Rojas Mora, says of these adjustments, “Crafting the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato with Starbucks Blonde Espresso gives the beverage a soft and smooth foundation that ties all the flavors together. The oatmilk adds a creaminess and brings forward the oat flavors of a traditional apple crisp topping.”
When I went to my local Starbucks location, I noticed they are also featuring the Iced Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam Chai Tea Latte as a drink for fall. This is a delicious combo that I highly recommend. Pumpkin spice and chai spices are made for each other. (I even have a pumpkin spice chai latte recipe you can check out!)
A new treat will be the owl cake pop. This cake pop “combines vanilla cake and buttercream, dipped in purple chocolaty icing and finished with an owl design.” It’s sure to be a fun offering that kids and adults alike will enjoy.
