Darth Vader’s Guide to Pumpkin Spice

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

The Death Star was nothing compared to Pumpkin Spice.

It’s everywhere.


   Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

We are facing a new, more virulent threat than Imperial stormtroopers.  I speak of Pumpkin Spice.


Brownies are brown and they don’t taste like pumpkin or spice!  Okay, pumpkin cheese cake does sound good.  I’ll give you that one.

What once was a spice in the bakery aisle has infiltrated a prodigious number of products, many of them non-edible and completely unrelated to the harvest season.


What have you done with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sandwich?

Now, I love pumpkin pie.  I even tried a pumpkin latte once.  But little did I anticipate these were only the vanguard of the full out invasion.   I took all these photos in about five minutes in two stores.  I can only imagine what awaits in the bath and candle stores. What I do not need is a candle that make me hungry!

Oh, now you are just messing with me.

Oh, now you are just messing with me.

Anyone else spiced out?


Wait…Is that a Pumpkin Spice bicycle?

I’d love to know what Pumpkin Spice products have invaded your home territory.  Be careful out there and may the spice be with you.

Got a favorite Pumpkin Spice product or one you love to hate?  

Let me know in the comments.
