Though we are definitely always keen to celebrate the end of summer and the start of fall with a classic pumpkin spice latte, there is definitely a limit to our pumpkin obsession. Paired with coffee and frothy milk, we love it; in pumpkin pie, it’s fantastic — we’re even keen on pumpkin spice breakfast cereal.However, there are many, many occasions when we’ve seen, stumbled upon, or tasted a pumpkin-spice-flavored product that proves this craze really has gone too far.
Pumpkin Spice Cheese
Flavoring cheese with anything is always risky. Infusing sweet, autumnal pumpkin-spice flavors into cheese really is an insult to the cow, sheep, or goat that created what would have otherwise been delicious food.
Pumpkin Spice Dog Treats
Us humans may be obsessed with everything pumpkin spice, but this doesn’t mean our dogs will be too. Don’t force your own tastes and cravings into your dog’s mouth: We’re 99 percent certain they won’t appreciate pumpkin spice treats.
Pumpkin Spice Gum
Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows
Pumpkin Spice Mints
Mints are meant to be minty; mints are not meant to be pumpkin spice-y. Pumpkin spice and mint is a revolting combination. Hopefully that explains why this creation should never have even be thought of, let alone created and sold.
Pumpkin Spice Pumpkin Seeds
We just can’t wrap our heads around coating an actual pumpkin product with artificially flavored pumpkin spice. This creation seems like an insult to the original food that this flavor was supposedly based on.
