The infamous Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte returned on August 25 this year (earlier than ever)—and Dunkin’ Donuts beat the competition by debuting their fall offerings on August 19. Only now are we officially in autumn, so we say, bring on the flood of pumpkin spice products.
They go way beyond the PSL (seriously, there’s even pumpkin spice mac and cheese…)—but naturally, we have to start with the classic.
We’ll continue updating this (very long, and still incomplete) list of pumpkin spice flavored gems that your pantry definitely needs throughout the season—whether you’re feeling ready for fall or not, there’s no denying it’s finally here.
The company that seemingly put pumpkin spice on the map offers it in several forms for at-home brewing, including pumpkin spice K-cups, ground coffee, and these instant coffee granules in individual size servings. No, they don’t taste exactly like the PSL you can get in stores, but they’re a quick fix in between trips. They’re also available on Amazon.Buy Now
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice K-Cups, 44 for $28.99 from Target
If you prefer single-serving coffee pods, they've got you covered too.
Dunkin' Pumpkin Spice Flavored Coffee, 60 pods for $59.98 from Amazon
Ditto, Dunkin' fans.
If you prefer to work with whole beans, you have a lot of options, including this small-batch coffee from a Florida-based company with plenty of other creative flavors (and amazing bag art, which doesn’t hurt). Use these beans to make cold brew or pour-over to enjoy hot on those chilly mornings.Buy Now
This new entry into the pumpkin spice drink category touts a lot less sugar (45 percent less than the PSL, to be exact), and a more coffee-forward flavor. If you need a vegan version, Califia Farms’ pumpkin spice latte cold brew is made with almond milk (and 100 percent Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee). Either way, a warmly spiced cold brew is the perfect drink for the span between summer and fall.Buy Now
On keto and not sure if you’ll be able to get your pumpkin spice fix? Never fear, because Omega PowerCreamer is here. The brand has just released its pumpkin spice keto creamer with MCT oil and grass-fed ghee, perfect for making Bulletproof coffee or to blend into shakes or smoothies.Buy Now

Pretty sweet.Buy Now
Pumpkin spice and a warm beverage go together like peanut butter and jelly. But coffee isn’t the only medium—try a pumpkin spice tea for a soothing treat. This Twinings blend marries black tea with “the light flavor of fresh autumn pumpkin and the savory spice flavors of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and allspice.” Check out similar offerings from TAZO, Stash, The Republic of Tea, David’s Tea, Adagio Teas, and Tea Forté too.Buy Now

Apple butter is already the essence of fall packed into a jar, but pumpkin butter is equally autumnal (and delicious).

For purists, they offer a plainer pumpkin butter too—but don’t worry, your beloved pumpkin pie spices are still there.Buy Now

This one isn’t being sold in stores, but if you’re really curious, you can enter for a chance to win a box of pumpkin spice mac and cheese; look at it from another perspective and they have to give it away—but to be fair, pumpkin spice can work quite well in savory foods like chili, so we’d bite…at least once.
Pumpkin Spice Spam, 2 cans for $8.98 from Walmart (currently out of stock)
Last year, even Spam couldn’t stay away from the pumpkin spice game. Whether the signature pork product will return with an autumn cloak of cinnamon, clove, allspice, and nutmeg in 2020 remains to be seen—but if you still have a can left over from last year, you can use it as a topping for waffles, add it to hash, or bake it into savory breakfast pastries. It’s not like it goes bad…
