Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice

*sits down at his laptop, feeling like he had never left it almost a month ago to post on here. Takes a sip of coffee and thinks about today's fun post. Fingers on keyboard completely now and ready to go, it's time for a new long awaited Cards Over Coffee*

In Cinderella, when the clock hits midnight on August 31st, everything turns to Pumpkin Spice. That was my favorite part of the movie. Oh, you don't remember that part? I guess you either missed the giant pumpkin or didn't watch the version I did. Either way, I promise you that's exactly what happened.

*takes a sip*

For me, the power of seasons changes hand to fall when September 1st arrives. Out goes summer, the heat, BBQ's and fruit smoothies and it becomes fall and pumpkin spice everything.

I am always sad when summer ends, but I have come to realize even more this year how much I actually like fall and the first part of winter. It brings football, Thanksgiving, Christmas and once again, Pumpkin Spice. And yes, I love pumpkin spice.

It always starts out with Dunkin' Pumpkin Spice coffee and that usually leads to one of their Apple Cider and Pumpkin Spice donut. So far this year I haven't had a Apple Cider one as they are always sold out.

Of course when I can't have a pumpkin spice donut from Dunkin', luckily Entenmann's makes their version of one as well. These are glazed as opposed to Dunkin' version. Another one I enjoy is the pumpkin and cider donuts that Price Chopper puts out, just haven't gone there to get any yet.

*takes a sip, wishing that a donut was in front of him now though the glazed ones gunk up the keyboard*

I really enjoy most Chobani Flip flavors as I have posted on here before, the Peanut Butter Dream and Banana Cream Pie are tops,
So when I saw a Pumpkin Harvest Crisp version, I had to give it a go. It was also really worth it. Though, doesn't make it to the top of my favorites.

 
It also wouldn't be me or fall if I didn't have some Ben And Jerry's in my life. So that calls for me yearly dip into the Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor.

And finally,

 
I may have purchased five bottles of this. Literally five. It's actually in the coffee I am drinking with today's post and something I use in my coffee until December.

*takes a sip of pumpkin spice bliss before finishing up today's post*

I will pretty much try anything pumpkin spice, except pumpkin pie. I have never liked it and usually will choose any other pie instead of it. With my love of pumpkin spice, you would think pumpkin pie would be at the top of my list. NOPE.

Pumpkin spice is also the scent of the season at my house. My wife's Scentsy holders and wax items light up the house in fall along with other decorations I set up.

I know not everyone likes Pumpkin Spice, so what about you? Let me know in comments.

  1. I used to like pumpkin spiced stuff, but it's gotten so overblown I'm kinda put off by it. I'll take apple cider over pumpkin spice any day.

    1. It looks like a lot of people are going Cider this year from seeing ads. I like both so that makes me double happy.

  3. I like pumpkin stuff (including pumpkin pie -- as long as you make it right, a lot of people don't and the recipes vary wildly). But I'm not ready for it until October. The last 3 or 4 Septembers have been HOT. There was that one a couple years ago where it was 85 for days in late Sept. in the Northeast! I'm not dealing with pumpkins in that heat.

    1. It looks like it may be 80 one day here this week, but for the most part, we have settled in the high 60s low 70s. That is fall temps for me.

  4. Haven't had anything pumpkin spice yet. It's a novelty thing for me, so I'll order a pumpkin spice latte at some point or one of my friends who bring one to me. As for all of the different things with that flavoring... I won't go out of my way to try it. But if the opportunity presents itself, I might.

  5. Wait, apple cider was an option? I side with the cider. Loving pumpkin spice but not pumpkin pie is kinda like loving ketchup but not tomatoes.
