The popularity of pumpkin spice lattes has surged each fall, thanks in large part to Starbucks introducing them as a seasonal option more than a decade ago. Ongoing demand for pumpkin spice has inspired other coffee sellers to introduce their own versions. Dunkin’ has aggressively launched them earlier and earlier each year – it just rolled out its fall lineup Wednesday, nearly a month before fall begins.

Jacob Barnes, 7-Eleven’s senior product director for proprietary beverages, said in a written statement that pumpkin spice is “easily [7-Eleven’s] most successful flavored hot beverage.”

“People really need some feel-good moments right now and our rich pumpkin spice provides just that,” he said.

The retailer’s take on the pumpkin spice latte is competitively priced, according to Barnes.

“With 7-Eleven’s value pricing on beverages, pumpkin spice-lovers can enjoy three cups – morning, noon and night – for about the same price they’d pay for just one latte at a coffeehouse or restaurant,” he said.

Also, 7-Eleven will introduce a new recipe for its popular apple fritters this fall, the company said. The new recipe will use a yeast doughnut mix as the base.
