This year, Starbucks is serving up a new Pumpkin Spice Latte that actually has, well, pumpkin in it.

But unlike last year, when the drink found its way into stores in August, this year's Pumpkin Spice Latte isn't rolling out until Sept. 8.

Unless you know the secret password, that is.

Instead of forcing us to wait, Starbucks is mercifully letting fans get in on the action early.


It first announced that those following TheRealPSL on Tumblr, Twitter or Instagram would get a special surprise — and then TheRealPSL posted this.

All you have to do to get your PSL Fan Pass is enter the password "pumpkin" at this link. You then enter your phone number, and the PSL Fan Pass is texted to your phone. It reads, "Show your barista for early access." Once you bring the pass to your local Starbucks and show it to the barista, that first taste of real pumpkin Pumpkin Spice Latte is yours.

Looks like fall is officially here, friends.
