It isn’t fall quite yet, but McDonald’s doesn’t care.

The fast food giant will begin serving its Pumpkin Spiced Latte at the end of this month. According to PopSugar the seasonal beverage made its debut at McDonald’s in 2013, and then returned last year to select locations. Now the whole nation will get to taste it when it comes back to all McDonald’s locations as of August 31.

It looks like McDonald’s is beating Starbucks to the PSL punch. The coffee chain released its own Pumpkin Spice Latte last year on September 8, which was about two weeks later than its usual release date. There is currently no word on when Starbucks will begin serving the drink this year.

“Because our customers asked for it, for the first time in three years, McDonald’s is expanding our Pumpkin Spiced Lattes to the entire U.S. making this popular drink available to all customers nationwide on August 31,” a spokesperson for McDoanld’s told Fortune. “The Pumpkin Spiced Latte is made with hints of pumpkin and cinnamon flavors, consists of espresso made with 100% Arabica beans and steamed with whole or non-fat milk.” She added that it will continue to be served through the holidays.

While we haven’t heard anything that could be detrimental to Pumpkin Spice Latte lovers, pumpkin-flavored beer fanatics haven’t been so fortunate. Fortune reported that a pumpkin shortage in 2015 is affecting brewers’ ability to find enough pumpkin puree for their seasonal brews.
