“Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.”~Linus, It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
As I have mentioned before I am a great fan of coffee and really anything in the family of. I love Starbucks and have even worked as a barista. And, don’t get me wrong, I love some pumpkin spice flavor in my coffee just as much as the next person. In fact, I was quite excited to have tasted my first “Pumpkin Spice Latte” last week at Starbucks.
Okay, so now that I’ve cleared that up…What is with ALL the pumpkin spice flavored EVERYTHING!? Seriously? Have you noticed that September hits and suddenly we are bombarded with this flavor option (at least in The States). What the heck?! Yes, the pumpkin spice latte has cornered the market on this delicious cup o’goodness. But that does not mean I want to taste it in every stinkin’ thing from now until December!
However, if you really love this flavor you can incorporate it in your day from morning to night. And it’s not all just edible either. You have lotions, candles, toothpaste and more. Now, the sanitary napkins might be an exaggeration, but you get my point! While this move to take pumpkin spice to a whole new level has me completely confused, you may be thrilled. So, here is to the individual tastes of every human being! Me, I will just continue to enjoy my latte, coffee and occassional pastery.
What is your take on pumpkin spice? Do you enjoy the flavor option in something particular?
