An Ode to Pumpkin Flavored Everything!

By - Steve Mezo

The proper name is "Pumpkin Spice Flavor", but in this day and age it abbreviated to "Pumpkin Flavor" and it's become as much a part of Halloween as Candy Corn. I use Candy Corn as a reference because they come out the same time of the year. And they both have the same like it, hate it or can only have so much of it following. 

I guess I would have to be in the "Can only have so much of it" group. I love the Duncan Donuts Pumpkin Spice Donuts, but it seems it's popularity has done to the flavor what the movies have done to comic books. 
It's everywhere and in just about every food item you could imagine. I was going to list them all but it would have made this article crazy long...

And it seems just like comic book movies The Pumpkin Spice invasion made a whole lot of people angry. Seriously, there are entire sites dedicated to the hatred of it. 

About the only thing I hate Pumpkin Spice are candles and room air fresheners. So I have to say to each their own.

Now if I could only bring Holiday Pepsi back...
