Pumpkin things.

But is a just me, or are things getting a little out-of-hand with the pumpkin everything thing?

I get it, it’s fall, and I think fall is one of the most wonderful seasons in the whole world.  Especially when the sun is out, which I haven’t really witnessed since fall began in North Carolina.  But the temps are a little cooler, I’ve been able to run without feeling like I’m going to vomit, and overall, I think this fall thing is a win.

Except…I went to a meeting early yesterday morning, and would you look at what I found.

Pumpkin PieThere, amongst all the asparatamey sweetness that is Yoplait (no shade to Yoplait, I used to like drink this stuff until I discovered Fage), was a Pumpkin Pie flavored yogurt as one of our breakfast options.  So obviously, I had to taste it.  I mean, what is the argument here.  I like pumpkin pie, I like yogurt.  But this was a major, major fail, and this, along the vast collection of pumpkin-flavored things to grace our Food Lion shelves over the last month, has just got to stop.

I have a confession to make.  I don’t care for the pumpkin spice latte (PSL).  I don’t care for pumpkin filled Oreos.  I don’t want pumpkin spice hummus.  Truthfully, the furthest I was ever willing to go was with pumpkin bread.  And pumpkin cheesecake, that too.  The rest of it?  I’m just not here for.

I’m sorry.

Does that make me grumpy?

  1. As much as I LOOOOVE pumpkin flavored treats, I agree on some level with you. I don’t think everything in the universe needs a pumpkin flavor lol! I didn’t even know there was pumpkin spiced hummus… I’m not too sure how to feel about that one haha!

  2. I love the fall teas that come out- Trader Joe’s does a good “harvest tea” but the pumpkin stuff is too much. The PSL takes like nasty chemicals, I just can’t get into it. It’s definitely gone too far and that’s coming from someone that loves fall. Although I do want to try some pumpkin cheesecake now!

  3. I just look away from all that “holiday” madness. Last fall, I has one PSL and it was enough. I might have one this fall too, just because, but having every food artificially pumpkin-flavored for the season is overkill. No, you’re not just grumpy. The stress is real.
