Fall is coming! That means one thing … PUMPKIN SPICE! I can close my eyes and taste is it now, that glorious first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season. That sweet creamy pumpkin taste, followed by the warmth from the cinnamon and nutmeg, if that doesn’t scream fall, I don’t know what else could!
Pumpkin spice is the greatest fall flavor there is, that’s all there is to it! Now, all you pumpkin haters out there, hear me out. I’m not wrong on this, and I can tell you why. First, pumpkins are only around in the fall. Apples you can find any time. They aren’t special!
Second, you can’t think of the major fall holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving, and not think of pumpkin! Halloween has Jack-o-lanterns. Thanksgiving has pumpkin pie!
The smell of anything pumpkin just automatically makes you think of fall. Whether you like it or not, pumpkin equals fall. It’s simply how it is! You don’t have to like the taste of pumpkin, in order to know and appreciate the scent of pumpkin.
Once you walk into Starbucks and that warm familiar smell hits your nose, there is just no doubt that fall is just around the corner.
So, you tell me Pumpkin Spice for life? Or no?
