I love the fall season. I love football. I love the cooler temperatures. I love clothes that cover my entire legs (so I don’t have to shave them so often).
I think pumpkins look nice. They are festive and they are fun to use for decoration. They are an iconic representative of the season and I have nothing against them. I love toasted pumpkins seeds- they are a great snack!
But I have a confession to make. I hate pumpkin spice.
I don’t like pumpkin pie. I don’t like pumpkin cake. I don’t like coffee, so certainly pumpkin spice lattes are out. But I like Oreos. But not pumpkin spice Oreos. I like bagels. But not pumpkin spice bagels. And don’t even get be started on pumpkin spice Pop Tarts or pumpkin spice flavored pumpkin seeds (yes those are both real things).
And the craze doesn’t stop there. There are pumpkin spice scented lip balms, lotions, hand soaps, etc.
I cannot fathom why this horrible flavor has taken over the planet. I don’t understand why people stand in line for it. I don’t understand why I’m supposed to want this flavor in my bread, or in my milk or in my Chap Stick.
Please tell me I’m not only one who is wondering why this is everywhere. Please?
