In a tweet Wednesday, Starbucks announced that its signature fall drink, the popular Pumpkin Spice Latte, will return on Tuesday.

Photos of the syrup used by Starbucks baristas to make the latte with pumpkin spice topping including cinnamon, nutmeg and clove had been popping up on the internet before Wednesday, but the company declined to comment.

Tuesday is the earliest Starbucks has released the drink, according to Business Insider. Last year, Starbucks released the drink on Aug. 28, the news website said.

Several people on Twitter shared their excitement, and disgust, about the news.
