Pumpkin Bliss

By Liz

Pumpkins! Pumpkins! Pumpkins!  Is it just me or has pumpkin fever hit extra hard this fall?   It feels as though the pumpkin flavored/infused initiative has grown, well bigger than a certain pumpkin that turns into a carriage.  I find this interesting and also self annoying that I've totally jumped on board with this new fall love.  

The easiest and most widely known pumpkin treat has to be the PSL (pumpkin spiced latte). This yummy treat can be found at almost any coffee shop, so it seems.  The months of September and October have me trading in my usual treat of a Carmel Macchiato to the limited PSL.  Super yummers!  

In addition to the latte, a major increase of pumpkin themed/flavored items are hitting the markets.   Trader Joes alone has over a dozen new items this year.  Pumpkin Biscotti, tea, pop tarts, ravioli, ice cream, and muffins just to name a few.  It's so interesting that this squash like veggie is getting such huge revamp and are more than pies and things you carve a scary face into at Halloween.  
Do you have a favorite Pumpkin flavored item? Oh and btw, totally sipping on a PSL as I write;0).
