Unprofessional Opinion: Pumpkin flavored everything

Hello everyone! Its that time of year again, fall is right around the corner, which means that anything and everything is going to be pumpkin flavored. I LOVE fall, its the most wonderful time of year, but the pumpkin madness needs to stop! I have seen lots of different things get the pumpkin twist , candles, coffee, lotions, but I have seen some crazy stuff and I am so tired of it. here are just some of the strangest things with the “pumpkin” flavor attached to it.

  • pumpkin flavored yogurt
  • Extra gum
  • Oreo s
  • Milk!
  • Marshmallows
  • Jell-o
  • candy corn
  • coffee creamer
  • cream cheese
  • soda!

Now I love pumpkin spice lattes as much as the next guy, but, this is getting way out of hand. What is up with us Americans taking one thing and thinking we can just add it to anything? Example: Kale, Avocados, Acia.  The pumpkin madness Just keeps getting larger and larger and starts earlier and earlier each year.

Is pumpkin a delicious add in for fall? Yes. Do I love Starbucks pumpkin lattes? Yes I do. But why can’t we just keep it down a notch huh? There are other flavors that are good in the fall, maybe even better, that we should enjoy and explore while we are going to pumpkin patches, caramelizing apples, enjoying the fall air and living life!

One thing is for sure I am not the only one who thinks its crazy, SNL did a sketch that really depicts what I feel.  They understand me. Click the link to see what I mean.
