The pumpkin spice latte (or PSL as some like to call them) trend has exploded over the past decade.
Those that order the seasonal drink don’t just purchase it for the coffee, but also for the overall experience – and its sweet flavouring.
The drink has global roaster and coffee chain Starbucks to thank for its surge in popularity.
But what is it that people love about the PSL so much? And why is it that once autumn arrives, its demand is at an all-time peak?
Whether they are a way for you to begin to embrace sweater weather that is fast approaching or you simply just love the taste, they are here to stay.
Luckily for PSL fans, there’s definitely not a lack of local coffee shops and eateries across Tayside and Fife offering the flavoured beverage.
