Get freakin' pumped, guys. After weeks — nay, months — of impatient anticipation, Starbucks's Pumpkin Spice Latte is finally available again. The beloved seasonal drink flavor officially returned on Aug. 28, which is even earlier than last year's September drop. Sure, the first day of Fall is technically Sept. 22, which is an entire month later, but we're more than ready to indulge ourselves with the warm, cinnamon-full beverage every morning to cure our withdrawals.

Fun fact: This is the 15th year Starbucks is offering the Fall-ready, sugar-heavy latte (HBD, PSL!), and it currently holds the title of being the coffee chain's top-selling seasonal beverage of all time (*pretends to be surprised*).

Ahead, see a few passionate and oh-so-relatable internet reactions to the PSL's return, and be sure to stock up on your pumpkin-spice-flavored cookie straws before you pick up your first celebratory latte. Pumpkin spice season, we're ready for ya.
