My Pumpkin Spiced Nightmare

I’ve never been particularly enamoured with pumpkin. The only exception I can recall is a delicious pumpkin ice cream pie that my aunt used to make for family gatherings.

When I first tried the now-infamous pumpkin spiced latte in 2010, I was immediately turned off by the weird peachy colour and sweet pumpkin taste. Because of this, I was – and continue to be – shocked by the meteoric rise in popularity.

But hey, drink what you love!

I shouldn’t be surprised by how many other brands have jumped on the trend and yet, there are SO MANY pumpkin-flavoured products in the aisles these days. It’s insanity!

When did October become a pumpkin spiced hellscape?

You think I’m kidding around?

Some products, granted, make sense to have autumnal flavours.

But others are totally bizarre! Pumpkin milk? Pumpkin margarine? Are you joking?

And if you think this trend isn’t bleeding into non-food avenues, you haven’t witnessed the horror that is this pumpkin spice latte handbag.

I’m a fan of Betsey Johnson, but this is so not my cup of tea (or coffee, for that matter)!

Please, someone wake me up from this cinnamon scented nightmare!

What’s the most unnecessarily pumpkin product you’ve spotted this season?

  1. Oh, you are speaking my language! (Though I admit to enjoying a PSL now & then.) I keep shaking my head at the increasing number of pumpkinfied things – but that bag takes the cake!

  2. Bwa ha ha ha!! I love it!

    We are not very good at moderation are we? This PSL and PUMPKIN ALL THE EVERYTHINGS proves it.

    Awesome post, Krista. I wish you could see my friend’s Facebook. It is pumpkin spiced spectacular.
