Autumn is just around the corner. That means sweaters, cozy fires in the fireplace, and boots. Of course this only applies to the rest of the country. Here, we’ll be happy to wear our t-shirts, and go out in the middle of the day without burning! One thing is certain each fall though, Pumpkin Spice. Remember the good old days when that only applied to fancy coffee? Starbucks first debuted their Pumpkin Spice Latte back in January of 2003, and since then, it seems every brand is looking to cash in on the pumpkin spice craze. Here are ten slightly nauseating pumpkin creations we could probably do without.
1) Pumpkin Spice Oreos
It’s basically a blonde Oreo with pumpkin flavored creme. These make me think of every terrible holiday cookie that well meaning mothers would pass out to kids at parties that would go uneaten.
2) Extra Pumpkin Spice Gum
When you just can’t get enough of that orange squash flavor.
3) Pumpkin Spice Vape
Not only is it unhealthy, now, you can enjoy pumpkin spice without subjecting your friends to it. Yes, you can actually smoke pumpkin now.
4) So Delicious Pumpkin Spice ice cream bars
I guess these were intended for the Valley of the Sun since it’s still hot here through the end of October, otherwise, who wants a cold pumpkin?
5) Jell-O Pumpkin Spice pudding
Because you don’t actually want to cook a pumpkin pie, you just want something that looks like you tried at the family dinner. I guess this is a good alternative choice if you just had your tonsils out.
6) Creative Snacks Co. Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Pretzels
Just stop. Now. Stop it.
7) Pumpkin Spice Peeps
They’re not just for Easter anymore!
8) Pumpkin Pie Spice Pringles
Because nothing makes us want a potato chip more than pumpkin on it. We’ll buy this for that white elephant gag gift party later this year.
9) Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm
Because you don’t want the extra calories from eating it. You don’t want to eat it at all. Just smell it all day.
10) Brach’s Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn
As if a mouthful of waxy candy corn wasn’t enough, Brach’s found a way to make it even worse.
11) Chobani Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Spice Blend
One day, we will wake up, and this all will have been just a bad dream.
