11 Not-So-Basic Tweets From Pumpkin Spice Latte Haters
Forget what your calendar tells you: Fall has arrived, because the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back.
Love it or hate it, Starbucks’s most famous seasonal drink is available today. The Seattle-based coffee chain wants you to enter your digits here to get your special “PSL Fan Pass,” but word on the street is that baristas will sell ‘em to you even without that pass.
Not everyone loves the autumnal drink, of course — maybe because of its social media hype, maybe because of its “basic white girl” demo, and maybe because it wasn’t made with actual pumpkin until last year. (Cringe. Cringe.)
In any case, expect the PSL hate to come out in full force this year as Twitter users balance out that nutmeg and cinnamon with 100 percent salt. Here are some of our favorite tweets so far, starting with a real chestnut.
