BREAKING NEWS: Pumpkin spice has shown up at the supermarket.
This isn’t right. You shouldn’t eat or drink pumpkin spiced things when it’s 90 degrees and humid and the kids haven’t even started school yet. Pumpkin spice is for cold fall days and nights, for Halloween and pies you make for your family on Thanksgiving and as a treat while you’re out Christmas shopping. If you’re still wearing shorts pumpkin spice shouldn’t be allowed to be sold (I don’t know what to tell the people who live somewhere where it’s always shorts weather. Move?). But there it is on the shelves, in the coffee drinks, in the muffins and in the cereals, candy, and almonds. I’ve even seen pumpkin spice gum, and while I’m not 100% sure I think I saw pumpkin spice-flavored deodorant the other day.
There’s no one in the galaxy who wants it to be fall more than I do, but we’re not quite there yet. Having all these pumpkin spice products in the stores in August is just a big tease.
