SEATTLE - It's never too early for a Pumpkin Spice Latte—right?  It might be 85 degrees outside in D.C., but you'll have an early chance to get your fall fix on Monday.  Starbucks is bringing back the drink lovingly dubbed the “PSL” during the last week of August.

According to Starbucks, more than 200 million Pumpkin Spice Lattes have been sold since it was introduced 11 years ago.  Normally, it's available the first week in September, but this year, the PSL is hitting the menu early.  

But that's not the only place you'll find it.  The “drink” has its own Twitter account, which has gained 58,000-plus followers since joining as @TheRealPSL on August 4.  Starbucks is using its Twitter presence to push a “Spot the Spice” challenge to their fans, offering a daily clue starting August 21 through August 25.  Followers of @TheRealPSL will be encouraged to solve the hints, which will be tracked on a Tumblr game board.  Late on August 25, PSL fans will get access to a special password, which they can take to their Starbucks stores on August 26 to “unlock” the beverage early and make it available to everyone who visits the store.  

The first customer who unlocks a store will be acknowledged by having their name displayed on a sign in the store, and fans can unlock as many stores as they would like.

The Pumpkin Spice Latte is made with espresso, steamed milk, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove – and is finished with whipped cream and pumpkin spice topping.
