Default Pumpkin Spice Alert!!!

They tried to warn us.
Coffee and beer was just the beginning.

It's in everything. Cereal, snacks, drinks, prepared foods, you name it. I can only stand so much of it before I want something else. I think I'm actually still "off" pumpkin spice from last year, come to think of it....

Somewhere--it might have been my old store--I saw pumpkin spice toilet paper last year.

Italians don't do the pumpkin obsession, which is a nice change. The annual panettone inundation is far more delicious (while I don't doubt that someone somewhere in the States has attempted pumpkin panettone, the creation of said baked good is so complicated that they probably gave up very quickly)

Walmart was selling pumpkin spice cat litter last year. I may have bought a tub for the lulz...and then my cat decided that she really liked it. Damned if I didn't end up buying about six tubs of the stuff, until my local Walmart was out of stock. If I can find it again this year I'm going to have to buy several tubs yet again. Stunned arse cat -_- She really doesn't like the regular scented litter anymore.

These are a thing?!?!?!

I do not get the pumpkin spice obsession, but that could also be because we Aussies don't fixate on that so much (Having said that, the closest approximation I can think of would be putting Vegemite and/or Nutella in just about everything, but not to the point of having Vegemite-scented toilet paper or cat litter!)

I laughed way too hard at that video. I knew about the pumpkin spice butter in August. The shelf signs had been put out at the store but no product. I think they took the signs off. I'm not really sure what they're doing with that.

I bought pumpkin spice cereal this year. I think I made some sort of joke about it when I bought it, but it's pretty good. There's some things where pumpkin spice (with or without the actual pumpkin) makes sense. Something that might be cinnamon the rest of the year gets a few extra spices thrown in and called pumpkin spice. I agree it's overhyped, but I kind of like most of it.

A certain credit union has been advertising something called a "pumpkin spice loan."

A salon in my in-laws town advertised a pumpkin spice mani/pedi for $25.

I don't remember where I saw the ad, but I still get a chuckle out of the Pumpkin Spice Break Pads.

I am pretty sure it was a spoof.











I hope to God that it was a spoof.
