It’s that time of year when everywhere you look there is something pumpkin flavored.
As someone who doesn’t care for pumpkin anything, including pie, I’m in wonder at the variety of products available with this seasonal choice.
Pumpkin spiced lattes, air fresheners, candles, candy, roasted nuts, cookies, cupcakes, pies, ale, M&Ms, ice cream, yogurt, chewing gum, wine, breads, butter spread, coffee creamer … the list seems almost endless.
Business Insider tested 35 pumpkin spice products to save you the disappointment of those that don’t measure up — everything from M&Ms to Oreos to a variety of Trader Joe’s products. If you’re looking for the best, Parade Magazine provided their 10 favorite pumpkin-spiced products.
Personally, I prefer apple scents and apple flavors at this time of year. Oh, and chocolate. Chocolate has no season … it is timeless.
It’s a short season and before long we’ll be into Christmas-scented items. Until then, take advantage of pumpkin spice because, like the autumn-colored leaves, when it’s gone, it’s gone until next year.
