Pumpkin Spice Latte fans, the password is "pumpkin."

The drink, which is a seasonal favorite at Starbucks, doesn't go on sale officially until next week. But if you have the secret password, you can get one starting today.

The official Twitter account for the drink, @TheRealPSL, tweeted instructions last night. Fans are told to go to and enter the secret word. From there, you'll put in your phone number to get a text with a picture to show your barista.

No picture. No Pumpkin Spice Latte for you... at least until September 8.

Anticipation for the drink is always high at this time of the year, and this year Starbucks says the drink will include real pumpkin for the first time.

Of course, if you don't want to play with any secret passwords and you don't want to wait until next week, you could always make your own Pumpkin Spice Latte at home for just $1.
