Have you had your first PSL of the season yet? The season is fully upon us, and since we've already weeded our way through the flavored product overload, we decided that it was high time to hold an official office PSL taste-testing-palooza. We have tried three different versions of pumpkin spice coffee, because, for this season at least, the fall food trend is not losing any steam. And as the saying goes, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
Ahead we break down seasonal offerings from three heavy hitters — Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, and McDonald's — into categories of most pumpkiny, spicy, and coffee-like brews. Whether you're already an avid sipper or a PSL newbie, scroll forth for all the tasting notes you'll need in navigating autumn's beverage mascot. Long live the pumpkin spice latte!
