Wicked Fall Guide

Is it time to pump the breaks on pumpkin spice?

It’s Fall, and that means it’s the official start of pumpkin spiced…everything. At first it was just pumpkin spiced coffee at Dunkin and then Starbucks got on the trend, and now it’s everywhere and in just about anything.

For the start of fall, Google Trends just did a big round-up of all the pumpkin spice products we’ve been googling.  And it turns out a lot of cat owners want pumpkin spice KITTY LITTER to be a thing.  It’s the top pumpkin spice “scented” product people have been searching for.  It actually HAS been sold before at Walmart in Canada, but it looks like they might not have it in stock this year.

Google also looked at the top pumpkin spice food or drink each state is oddly obsessed with this year . . .

For Massachusetts Pumpkin Spice coffee is by far the number one Google search, New Hampshire loves Pumpkin Spiced cream cheese best, Rhode Island prefers Pumpkin Spiced hot chocolate, Maine likes pumpkin spice creamer and Vermont enjoys pumpkin spice syrup and wait till you see what Connecticut is into.

Here’s my list of the Top Five Kookiest Pumpkin Spice Products!

  • 5. Pumpkin Spiced Dump Cake

    Virginia is for Dump Cake? This is the top search for folks in Virginia, I have to  admit it looks a whole lot better than it sounds.

    Did you know you can make wine out of just about any fruit or vegetable with a fairly high sugar content - even pumpkin wine? One of my foraging mentors, the late Mike Jacisin, was willing to experiment with cooking and fermenting just about anything.

  • 3. Pumpkin Spiced Hummus

    There’s pumpkin spiced hummus around us and it’s in North Carolina. To be fair it looks more like a dessert than something that you would have in the usual hummus way

  • 2. Pumpkin Spiced Cup of Noodles

    For Connecticut and Indiana the choice is Pumpkin Spiced Spam. At first I thought this was a joke, but nope. It actually might taste better than you think. In fact, it might be better than the original Spam.
