Pumpkin Spiced Everything!


pumpkinIt’s that time of year again: the leaves are changing, the weather is beginning to become cooler,  school is back in session, and… everything becomes pumpkin spiced. Pumpkin spiced foods and drinks are apparently a huge deal to everyone and people will especially go crazy over new and different pumpkin spice flavored items. The crazy thing is, there’s so many things that have become pumpkin spiced.

Starting off with the pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks: This warm drink has to be the most famous work of art from the pumpkin spice family. According to neatorama.com, in their article “4 Surprising Facts About Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte”, in the past decade, Starbucks has sold over 200 million pumpkin spice lattes in the past decade, and is now made with real pumpkins!

Pumpkin Spice Oreos seem to be a big hit in the pumpkin spice latte family. The golden cookie with a pumpkin flavored creme in the middle actually sounds pretty good, and one of the better sounding foods that has been “pumpkin spice latte’d”.

Along with the Oreos, “Pumpkin Spice Nom-Noms” are quite popular, too. Only being found online, NatureBox sells Pumpkin Spice Nom-Noms on their well-known website. According to the package, Pumpkin Spice Nom Noms  are simply pumpkin oat cookies, which definitely sounds amazing.

Mini Wheats cereal now comes in a pumpkin spice flavor. The beloved cereal brand has its original weaved wheat texture, but has an orange and white frosting on top. The cereal is very pungent with the taste of cinnamon rather than pumpkin, but still a great idea.

Of course, along with delicious sounding foods, there are some that may make you say “Why in the world would anybody buy that?” Ever heard of pumpkin pie spice Pringles? Candy corn? M&M’s? Butter? Fettuccine? Yes, these are all real things that have been pumpkin spiced… Yikes.

There are easily dozens of more things that are pumpkin spiced, showing that the pumpkin spice craze has gotten out of control, but people really seem to enjoy the popular taste in pretty much any food and drink.
