The stroke of midnight on September 1st only means one thing to coffee lovers; yes, the pumpkin spice season is upon us. While Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte is the usual main attraction for consumers, there seems to be a few worthy alternatives that are giving the fan favorite drink a little competition. From new arrivals to traditional pick-me-ups, here are 10 drinks that will convince you to push your PSL to the side.

Tangy apple juice meets spicy cinnamon and sweet, gooey caramel in this Starbucks favorite. Be mindful that you may have to ask for this one by ingredients, as it's not advertised as much as it used to be. Still, it's a seasonal favorite that'll make you say, "Pumpkin spice, who?"

5. Starbucks' White Chocolate Mocha
