So far this year, we have pumpkin Halo Top, pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin deodorant, and even pumpkin fidget spinners. Now, Snap, Crackle, and Pop are adding to the arsenal of autumn-flavored products with new pumpkin pie Rice Krispies Treats.

This limited-edition item was spotted on the shelves of Wal-Mart by “Josh C,” according to Instagram account @theimpulsivebuy. And, of course, fall food fanatics have become emotionally unhinged.

“No freaking way!!!!! Omg time to hunt,” exclaimed @junkfoodonthego.

“I saw these last night I would tear them up,” wrote @ritaboo9. And @khanson18 commented, “Sweet lord bless it.”

Others, like @christy.emc, aren’t feeling as ecstatic. She said, “Let’s just say when I tried those pumpkin spice Cheerios, the box sat in my pantry for over a year and I’ve never had a PSL.” Oh, just give it a chance Christy!

The new bright orange package features a hefty slice of pumpkin pie with a fat dollop of whipped cream. Pride and joy radiates from Snap, Crackle, and Pop’s miniature smiling mugs as the cartoon mascots top off a Rice Krispies Treat with white icing drizzle.


Does pumpkin spice belong on cereal? Maybe, maybe not, but here are 10 times pumpkin spice definitely went too far.
