Fall just seems to be starting earlier and earlier every year.

Just this past weekend when I was grocery shopping, I saw carts next to carts of Halloween candy being slapped onto shelves... and we're barely a third into August!

Last I checked, the first day of Autumn is September 22.

However if there's one craze I've learned to just accept, it's the wave of excitement that is Pumpkin Spice Mania... So this next bit of news ought to get you dreaming of fall foliage, sweatshirt weather and your favorite blankets.

Last week, Starbucks announced that later this month it will begin selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes at grocery stores in “ready-to-drink bottles, as well as Pumpkin Spice ground coffee.


Because what good is a beverage craze if you can’t bottle it, right?

As Extra Crispy notes, as some companies have already been delivering their pumpkin spice coffee flavor to stores earlier this month.

At the rate things are going with stores rushing to get the next season in, I should be able to enjoy a glass of egg nog by Patriot Day.
