Pumpkin spice latte fans may be able to get their fix earlier than ever before, this year. Starbucks’ crazy-popular drink is slated to debut on August 28, according to internal documents obtained by Business Insider.

Rumors about a release date have been swirling in a closed Facebook group for Starbucks' pumpkin spice-devotees known as the Leaf Rakers Society for a while, with employees dishing what they know for sure — which is essentially, nothing. Starbucks has been historically tight-lipped about these release dates, so it’s no surprise they haven’t shared the news in any official capacity even within the company.

In the past, the earliest drink debut was August 26, but more recently Starbucks has waited until September to release the PSL to the public. Last year, the official launch date was September 5, a week later than this year's speculated release.
