Fall is coming!

Hello world!  Since fall is coming (and it is because the stores say it is), I thought I would try to capture all the Pumpkin Spice (and other holiday related foods, recipes, articles and memes) in one place.  Starting on Labor Day, I will begin posting something I find (or someone else finds and sends me, hint hint) each day that has some sort of pumpkin spice (or pumpkin pie or just plain ol’ pumpkin) flavor.  Last year we found coffee (aka what started it all), alcohol, donuts, chocolate chips, bread, candy, gum, granola, coconut milk, hot chocolate, toaster strudel, waffles, yogurt and all kinds of fun stuff.  After Halloween, things tended to switch more to Christmas flavors – gingerbread, peppermint, eggnog and the like.  It sort of seems to me like the flavor trends rise and fall with Starbucks.  Let’s see if that trend continues, and what kind of fun pumpkin spice foods can be found this year.

This fall display was set up in early August in one of our local stores.
