But is a just me, or are things getting a little out-of-hand with the pumpkin everything thing?
I get it, it’s fall, and I think fall is one of the most wonderful seasons in the whole world. Especially when the sun is out, which I haven’t really witnessed since fall began in North Carolina. But the temps are a little cooler, I’ve been able to run without feeling like I’m going to vomit, and overall, I think this fall thing is a win.
Except…I went to a meeting early yesterday morning, and would you look at what I found.
There, amongst all the asparatamey sweetness that is Yoplait (no shade to Yoplait, I used to like drink this stuff until I discovered Fage), was a Pumpkin Pie flavored yogurt as one of our breakfast options. So obviously, I had to taste it. I mean, what is the argument here. I like pumpkin pie, I like yogurt. But this was a major, major fail, and this, along the vast collection of pumpkin-flavored things to grace our Food Lion shelves over the last month, has just got to stop.
I have a confession to make. I don’t care for the pumpkin spice latte (PSL). I don’t care for pumpkin filled Oreos. I don’t want pumpkin spice hummus. Truthfully, the furthest I was ever willing to go was with pumpkin bread. And pumpkin cheesecake, that too. The rest of it? I’m just not here for.
Does that make me grumpy?
