    • because EVERY FALL they jam this down everyone’s throat. It’s nice for about a minute, but after that, it begins to induce nausea. In me, at least.

      • I like the Pumpkin Spice frappes from a certain coffee chain, but on a very, very limited basis. Like, I think two in a season has been my highest limit.

        Now peppermint hot chocolate?! GIMME GIMME GIMME!!!

          • Barista here;
            Already full throttle with the pumpkin spice thing.
            Also PS muffins, cookies & scones in the bakery, PS air-freshener & potpourri, PS liquid soap & bath wash, etc.
            It’s aromatherapy for comfort; it conjures images of cooler weather blowing in, Grandma’s kitchen, snuggling by an open fire & getting ready for the holidays.
            It makes you want to forget about the bad stuff for awhile.

          • @freakle, that only works if you like pumpkin pie in the first place. I like the spices individually, but together… Eww. Never have liked it that pie, never will like it.

      • Ok pumpkin coffee from dunkin donuts is good and I like some pumpkin beers but it’s getting ridiculous with pumpkin flavoured everything.

        • I do love me some pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin rolls, but that’s about it. I agree, they go way overboard with the pumpkin-everything.

  1. It was fun when it first started, but dear God, they’ve gone so far overboard that they’ve come up the other side. Please, please make it stop!

  2. I agree with ark. The first couple of times, it tastes good, but then the stuff is everywhere. Cookies, coffee, cough drops…on and on.

    Enough, already!

  3. The only pumpkin anything I enjoy is stuffed pumpkin. Clean the pumpkin seeds out (roast them they’re good) and all of the stringy stuff leaving the pulp in the pumpkin. In a separate pan saute any combination of hamburg, sausage, sage, onions, garlic and any other seasoning. Make mashed potatoes mix it all together and re-stuff the pumpkin. Bake on low (250) for about 3-4 hours. Cut into slices and enjoy. It’s very tasty.

  4. While at the grocery store yesterday, I saw Pumpkin Spice Cheerios. Cue me being like “WHY?!”, followed by “No.” Needless to say, I did not get any.

    • When I was growing up, we had Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. Now they have twenty different flavors, some of which I wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot spoon. Chocolate Cheerios? No. Just . . . no.

  5. Gods, yes. Any day now I’m expecting the local supermarket chain to start with this stuff. The last couple of years, when the season hit, they had TWO AND A HALF PAGES of pumpkin spice products in their weekly flyer. Not even kidding. Beer, cookies, donuts, muffins, cereal, bread, bagels, English muffins, I can’t even remember all of it. Enough is enough.
