Fall is here, which means Starbucks’ beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte has also arrived. The flavored beverage is so popular that the coffee chain can barely keep up with demand, Lisa Fleisher at The Wall Street Journal reports:  

Baristas are hitting the street, searching for stashes of the flavored sauce at other stores. Customers denied their fix—which costs about $4 for a small cup, or ‘tall’ in Starbucks speak—are tweeting about their dismay.

Starbucks officials blame the shortages on “infrequent deliveries” and not a scarcity of pumpkin sauce.
