Pumpkin Flavored Everything
I’ve fallen into the pumpkin trap this month. Everywhere you look, there’s pumpkin flavored something. It’s not a bad thing, but the amount of pumpkin flavored stuff out there is crazy! I had a pumpkin spice latte Sunday morning, but skipped the pumpkin bread. I drove by the Dairy Queen and saw the sign for the pumpkin Blizzard. Those are yummy.
By the way, did you know that the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte contains exactly zero traces of pumpkin? It has other wonderful spices in it, like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pumpkin pie-flavored syrup, but no pumpkin.
The pumpkin craze doesn’t stop there. And there are a few things I still might try this fall.
Kahlua Pumpkin Spice. I’m thinking that might be pretty good in coffee. Just not before I go on the air in the morning.
Pumpkin Spice Tea. Perfect on a chilly fall day.
Pumpkin pasta. There are some great recipes out there!
Pumpkin Spice Soy Milk. I like soy milk, but the jury is still out about this one.
What are your favorite pumpkin flavored goodies this time of the year?
