Enough with the Pumpkin Spice

    What started off a few years innocently as a Starbucks seasonal frothy beverage has mushroomed out of control. The Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte was introduced in 2003. You will now find your grocery store littered with pumpkin spice in about just every popular product. From September till the end of October, North America seems to go crazy with the Autumn spice. I think we reached the tipping point with pumpkin spice, enough is enough. There is way too much out there. Personally, I think it has become clickbait for the most outrageous food combos that manufacturers want to promote their year-long products by adding pumpkin spice. Just about restaurant or food establishment has added pumpkin spice to their menu. I hate entering the Christmas Tree Store or Bath and Body Works, it feels like your nose is swimming in pumpkin spice. The best part of the spice is that there is no pumpkin in it. It is a spice for pumpkin pies so that they taste better. Why not just call it the cinnamon spice?
