Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. These are the spices that are used to make a pumpkin pie. As a baker for half my life I have made many pumpkin pies and mmmmm they can be tasty.
Then one year a popular coffee shop came up with the idea to flavor its beverage with these common spices and sell it to the general, unawares public.
Of course that was not the end of it all. Other popular coffee shops started selling a pumpkin flavored coffee as well.
What would you expect next. Exactly now you can buy bags of coffee so that you can now brew your own delicious pumpkin spiced coffee at home.
Next thing you know there are creamers that you can add to your ho hum coffee to spice it up.
I think that the pumpkin spice craze has reached insane levels. Everything can be bought with pumpkin spice flavor added to it. I reached the conclusion that this fascination with pumpkin spice has reached epic proportions today when I was at one of my customers and she had Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses sitting on a table.
Keep an eye on the sky for the falling pumpkins.
