Are you tired of pumpkin spice yet? Alarmingly, you’re probably not. There are so many pumpkin spice products in existence right now you could write a novel about them.

There are pizzas, sausages, cinnamon rolls, pretzels, creamers, bagels, seasoning spray, and even deodorant — it’s safe to say that pumpkin spice has gone a little too far.

But it’s impossible to go the season without indulging your inner #basic at least once. Or twice. Okay, so you go every week — you can’t help it! If you’re going to indulge in a mug or two or ten, it couldn’t hurt to know which varieties are clogging your arteries, spiking your blood glucose, sending your calorie intake through the roof…. And which aren’t so bad.
