It's a Pumpkin Taste-Off!

You know that fall is fast approaching when you walk into the grocery store, minding your own business, and suddenly  e v e r y t h i n g  has been inundated by the flavor of the season - pumpkin. Sweet things, savory things, things you drink...from cookies to beer, you can't get away from it.

For some people this makes a trip to the market at this time of year a little bit like heaven on earth, and it might be a little vomit inducing for others. Whatever your feelings, it looks like pumpkin is here to stay for quite a while. So I convinced my husband to sit down with me and film a little video of us sampling about a dozen or so of these spicy seasonal treats. If you aren't sure if pumpkin yogurt or bubble gum is for you, well you've come to the right place! Well...maybe. You don't have to let our opinion sway you.

We're calling this the 2016 Pumpkin Taste-Off! And here's a list of all of the things we tried:

Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts
Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Cheesecake cookies
Pumpkin Spice Saltwater Taffy
Prairie Farms Pumpkin Spice Milk
Eckert's Pumpkin Butter
Yoplait Pumpkin Pie yogurt
Pumpkin Spice Cheerios
Little Debbie Pumpkin Delights
Pepperidge Farm Milano Pumpkin Spice cookies
Schlafly Pumpkin Ale
Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream
Extra Pumpkin Spice gum

It's a long video, but we felt a strong obligation to be extremely thorough for our fellow consumers. :) Actually, it just takes a really long time to chew your way through this much pumpkin, apparently. If you are squeamish about watching people eat...about possibly seeing something spewed from someone's mouth...and/or talking with your mouth full, this might not be the video for you. On the other hand, it could be worth it just to see me drink an alcoholic beverage - something that no one will be seeing again, any time soon. You decide. :)

We had fun doing this together, in spite of some of the faces you may have seen here. And we may have found a new favorite or two as well. If you've tried a pumpkin flavored thing this season that is just super great, let us know! 

As for this year, that's a wrap on our evaluation of pumpkin offerings. I think I'll be taking a break from anything pumpkin spice for the rest of this week. :) 

Happy Day!

The Noosa brand yougurt in Pumpkin was amazingly good.
