Starbucks has announced that its supremely popular Pumpkin Spice Latte will be hitting UK stores next week.

The brand confirmed that the ever popular treat will be returning on September 25th, meaning fans of the autumnal drink have only a few short days to wait before they can get their hands on one! 

Described as a ‘scrumptious combination of Starbucks espresso roast, pumpkin pie flavoured sauce and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices’ we’re talking flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves that will have you yearning for a bonfire before you know it!

The company has also announced the introduction of a new rewards programme using contactless technology, which they say means customers will now take just weeks on average to get their next free drink.

Members will now get three 'stars' for each £1 spent in store, and those with 150 stars can claim a free barista-prepared drink of their choice.

Alex Rayner, general manager at Starbucks UK, said: "Starbucks Rewards has always been and will always be about appreciating our most loyal customers and the new Starbucks Rewards programme responds to the most frequent feedback we've received from members over the years - to earn Stars for what they spend rather than how often they visit.

"The new programme is part of a wider transformation we have underway to integrate the physical instore experience with digital innovation. With Starbucks Rewards being hosted via our App, members can earn Rewards while also customising their beverage exactly to their taste, ordering ahead to skip the queue and paying contactlessly.

"When the programme goes live, current members of Starbucks Rewards will receive a prompt to update both the Starbucks UK App and their password. Existing members will not lose any Stars or previously earned benefits. Any free drink coupons already collected will be automatically migrated to the new programme and members' existing Stars will be automatically converted to reflect the changes.”
