On August 27, 2019, the news was filled with a lot of spicy big news! Starbucks, that place we all love, the king of coffee, the lord of lattes, was bringing back the PSL. Yes, on August 27th, pre-fall-before-autumn-Christmas-items-soon-to-follow, PSL has returned to its throne-worthy domain!
We want to make fun of it because it has become a bit ridiculous, but then again, in a world filled with chaos, a little bit of PSLatte can go a long way. So much so that the spice continues to permeate our culture in rather interesting ways. Let’s take a look.
Spam-Spice: In case you have no idea what to do with it, the site suggests you, “Fry it up with waffles, hash or eggs to make the perfect breakfast or brunch pairing.” Nailed it.
Utensil-Spice: No, you don’t eat them, you use them eat. But, hey, what better to eat your pumpkin spiced Spam waffles?
Pirate-Spice: Ayyyy mate, start ye’r day with this breakfast booty – yo ho ho! Pop a shot of this in your breakfast smoothie, serve with your pumpkin spiced Spam waffles.
Sophisticated-Spice: Are you looking down your plank at those pesky pirates? Upper-crust you can then just head on over to Williams Sonoma for this harvest-inspired craft cocktail.
Sudoku-Spice: Spice up your combinatorial number-placement puzzle (say that again?) with spice!
Dinner-Spice: We covered breakfast, here is what you can whip up for dinner.
Pet-Spice: Finally, let’s not forget our furry friends. They too are surely feeling that pumpkin spice vibe. Put in your order for these dental treats and this canine chew. But don’t stop there, invite your dog to your coffee klatsch too. Picky kitty may not love the spice, but he or she will love the pumpkin!
As the Spice Girls may say, “Tell me what you want, what you really really want.” As we may say, “I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, really really really really really pumpkin spice – in every conceivable way, shape and form.”
