GREGGS has announced the exact date it will be bring back its famous pumpkin spiced latte – and fans don't have long to wait.
The chain, which runs over 2,000 bakeries in the UK, is bringing back the iconic beverage tomorrow.
It will set customers back £2.40, 20p more expensive than last year, and up 45p from 2021.
The hot drink is also hitting stores nationwide a day earlier than 2022, and well ahead of autumn.
The flavoured drink, which comes with freshly ground coffee, pumpkin spice syrup and steamed milk, is often a firm favourite among customers.
Greggs isn't the only retailer to sell it either – Starbucks customers often can't wait to get their hands on the beverage, which was available to buy from September 1 last year.
