It’s Pumpkin Spice Season

Phyllis Lifestyle 28 Comments

Everyone that knows me understands that pumpkin spice season is sacred. I have already had a latte, cookies, and a cheesecake slice of pumpkin spice. I just love spice anything, really. This past weekend, one of my dearest friends presented me with a pillow that says, “Pumpkin Spice Season!” She is the same one who gave me my pumpkin spice latte socks last year. Now, since she doesn’t like pumpkin spice, I am sensing that she is mocking just a tad, but nevertheless—It’s here!

I don’t know why, but the aroma of autumn spices just delights me to no end. I use cinnamon and nutmeg throughout the year, but when autumn comes, I just can’t get enough. I am totally amazed at the crazy products that appear for enthusiasts like me, and this year, the one that I couldn’t believe was Pumpkin Spice Spam. I looked it up on the Internet, and it’s true. So really, I don’t care, but what in the world? I laughed when I read that this killed the 16-year pumpkin spice craze.

And the one I kind of don’t understand is the pumpkin spice shower gel. Now, let’s see—you bathe and then smell like a pumpkin pie. Hmm…I must think that one through.

My dear friend Sister Shubert has pumpkin spice rolls in the frozen foods section, so you can bet I am going to stock up on these delicacies. Her rolls are to die for, and to think she added pumpkin spice—well, she is my new hero!

Ok, enough; so tell me what is the most unusual pumpkin spice item you have found this year?

  1. So I haven’t found anything unusual yet but I so look forward to this time of year so I can taste all that is available with pumpkin spice, except probably the spam you spoke of. I doubt I would be a fan. Today I baked a pumpkin spice cheese cake for our Thanksgiving feast. I always enjoy pumpkin spice chai and the pumpkin spice bagels. Love to hear what everyone is finding across our nation.

  2. Phyllis, I’m not in to the taste of pumpkin spice but look forward to and love the aroma. It just naturally makes me think of fall.

  3. Yes, it’s pumpkin season, we just love good ole
    Pumpkin Pie with whipped cream! We enjoy each piece and reminisce all the years
    of sharing pumpkin pie with family and friends, it’s really a fall/autumn treat. If I take pumpkin pies to our monthly meeting pot luck I’m loved……everyone’s standing in line and there’s never any left overs!

  4. I like Pepperidgpe Farm’s Pumpkin Spice Milano and Pumpkin cheesecake cookies. Entenmanns pumpkin flavored cakes and donuts are great a are Dunkin’ Donuts.

  5. Yum, I love pumpkin spice also. To me it’s the beginning of everything Thanksgiving and Christmas. I get twitterpated just thinking about all the Delicious things I can make from now until January. Last year I was diagnosed with tennis elbow because of the many goodies I baked getting ready to gift my friends, neighbors, doctors () and daughter. Don’t let me forget my sweet hubby. I need suggestions in how to avoid tennis elbow this year because if God’s willing I will be enjoying being in the kitchens doing the same thing this year.

  6. Phyllis i enjoy most Pumpkin Spice foods. Especially the donuts and the spice cake are my favorites. Pumpkin Spice is just another thing that I love about Fall.

  7. I love pumpkin spice in fall and look for anything I can find with the smell and taste of pumpkin. This year I discovered Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Pretzels by Creative Snacks Co. They are wonderful! I purchased mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond but they’re also available at World Market and Sam’s. I highly recommend!!!

  8. Phyllis, who could possibly eat pumpkin spice spam, that is too much for sure?!! Thank you for letting us know that Sister Schubert has pumpkin spice rolls, I love her orange rolls so I will be looking forward to finding the pumpkin spice. Happy Autumn!

  9. Phyllis, you are a girl after my own heart! Pumpkin spice immediately drums up feelings of all things so wonderfully Autumn! The tastes, the smells and all things cozy and snuggly… hmmm… not much better than that! Just had some Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Ice Cream which was great and would go well topping off most pumpkin type cakes and desserts. A few years ago I had the best homemade, pumpkin- custardy type ice cream on the eastern end of Long Island! I’m still dreaming about it but Trader Joe’s is pretty close!!! Wishing you all the most beautiful and heartwarming Fall!!!

  10. I know Autumn is here when Starbucks offers its pumpkin spice latte. The Pumpkin-spice madeleines I bought the other day are my newest PS indulgence. Yum! Forget the spam and shower gel.

  11. Pumpkin Spice Spam was the end of it all for me. I do love pumpkin spice, but Spam is just one product too far!

    As for the shower gel, I like it. The fragrance relaxes me and starts my day off on a happy note before my commute to work. Plus, my husband loves the smell of pumpkin pie and will cuddle more often when I use the shower gel, can’t complain about that!

    My favorite pumpkin spice item is Dunkin’ Donuts Pumpkin Spice Donut. I find most of their donuts too sweet, but this one I do like and I treat myself to one each year, enjoyed with a cup of hot mulled apple or pear cider.
