Has pumpkin spice gone too far?
It started with pie, moved into warm beverages, and now it seems like sky’s the limit for pumpkin products. But have we ever stopped to as ourselves… why?
Is pumpkin spice even really that good?
Is it just because by now were sick of chocolate and vanilla? Which by the way are obviously far more delicious than pumpkin when push comes to shove.
Here’s a few products that have no business being pumpkin spice flavoured.
We’ll start with gum.
Gum is for after food not in lieu of food.
Pumpkin dog treats.
Your dog doesn’t want pumpkin – he wants meat. Yet there is a page on pintrest called ‘1000+ ideas about Pumpkin Dog Treats’. For shame.
Pumpkin Spice Air Freshener.
This is silly for obvious reasons. Air fresheners make you hungry, and they get house guest’s hopes up that you just baked something. Who wants to be that kind of a let down.
Pumpkin Spice Deodorant.
Really. Who wants to smell like food, not to mention you can’t go for a walk. You’ll get attacked by a bear, or the very least insects. All logic aside there are no less that SEVEN different varieties of pumpkin flavoured deodorant on Etsy.
