As summer turns to fall, it’s time for one of Starbucks’ most popular drinks — the pumpkin spice latte. The coffee shop has turned to Facebook for a contest to figure out which city will be the first to sip the sweet java. This contest’s application was so popular that it crashed within one hour of its launch Monday morning. Not to worry, it’s now up and running again. As of Tuesday morning, the town of Clarkesville, Ga. (population 1,742), located 85 miles northeast of Atlanta, is the leader.
People who are serious about their coffee can show off their experimental skills on the Seattle’s Best Facebook page for the chance to win some free java.
U.S. Facebook users are injecting a little java into their status updates in honor of National Coffee Day.
