Starbucks has not officially announced the date and told Insider that they had no gourd-related news to share at this time, but employees have reportedly been posting photos of the pumpkin spice flavor syrup that arrived in stores earlier in the month, lending credence to the early rumors.

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, at least, must be excited. Read more at Business Insider. Tim O'Donnell
