Just Say NO to Pumpkin Spice

Will autumn be ruined again this year by a seasonal flavor called pumpkin spice? This hideous, abhorrent flavor surfaced a few years ago. It began innocently enough in just a few baked items as extensions of the classic favorite, pumpkin pie.

It has gotten out of hand as dozens of foods and beverages now feature pumpkin spice. Just the thought of it makes me want to toss my cookies (if you get my drift). Pumpkin spice has even shown up in air fresheners with dire consequences seen in this linked story. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4955962/Pumpkin-spice-air-freshener-prompts-evacuation-school.html

But I really lost it when craft beer and cider brewers began to offer taps and bottles to this insulting flavor. https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2017/10/63-of-the-best-pumpkin-beers-blind-tasted-and-rank.html       A boycott is strongly suggested. Are you with me?

    I despise the spice!
    It doesn’t taste nice.
    But we should think twice;
    And use it for lice.


  2. Or feed it to mice on a plate of rice. Or roll the dice and try some twice.

    I saw a funny sign online about a “Pumpkin Spice Oil Change” in front of a Jiffy Lube. LIfe is good when you can laugh.


  4. Maybe they should put it in “Old Spice” . . . 🙂
