Autumn in America now means the return of the much-loved pumpkin spiced latte at coffeehouses nationwide—and why should man’s best friend miss out? To complement their seasonal special hot drink, the Belgian-founded bakery, Le Pain Quotidien, will offer a PAWmpkin spiced latte for pooches for free on October 26, which just happens to be National Pumpkin Day.
The chain says this PSL for pups is “a new ‘off-menu’ item served in a pup-sized cup and made of Certified Organic pumpkin puree (the same used in your PSL from Le Pain Quotidien).”
The bad news is that the drink for dogs will only be available at two of the chain’s more than 200 global locations—and both are in New York City: Le Pain Quotidien Mineral Springs at 67th Street & Central Park West and Le Pain Quotidien Sailboat Pond at 74th Street & Fifth Avenue.
Still, according to a report by MSN, despite the limited release, the PAWmpkin Spiced Latte is a bit of a breakthrough: It appears that no chain, at least, has offered a PSL for dogs in the past.
So why did Le Pain Quotidien introduce this doggy delight? The move is intended to highlight that their Pumpkin Spiced Latte uses organic pumpkin and has half the sugar of Starbucks’ trailblazing PSL—implying that the ingredients Le Pain Quotidien uses are so good you can feel comfortable serving them to your pet.
Plus you dress your dog up in a stupid costume every Halloween anyway; he should be able to partake in the rest of the seasonal fun.
