Throwback Thursdays! It’s The Great Pumpkin Spice Latte Charlie Brown!


I was also going to name this “A Pumpkin Flavored Phil Factor”. It’s that time of year, again. Sigh.  It has begun. Pumpkin flavored everything is back in stores! WTH? Seriously, are pumpkins such a wonderful delicacy that we have to flavor EVERYTHING with them? Why pumpkin? Is there any other time of year when a flavor takes over the country for a couple months? Around the winter holidays why isn’t there nog flavored everything? Around St. Patrick’s Day we’ve got our Shamrock Shakes, but that’s about it. How about this? I’m going to give you a list of ten pumpkin flavored items below and you try to guess which one isn’t real.

1. Coffee

2. Beer

3. Donuts

4. Candy

5. Soda pop

6. Potato chips

7. Pasta

8. Cookies

9.  Vodka

10. Smoothies

Guess what? They are all real! That’s too much pumpkin flavored stuff. What’s next, pumpkin-flavored fish sandwiches at McDonald’s? This time of year it’s actually an effort not to accidentally eat something pumpkin flavored. This madness must end!  When I’m elected President, or Sexiest Man Alive, whichever comes first, I’m going to pass a law stating that any company that produces a pumpkin flavored food item has to have it approved through a special sub-committee and if it is just too stupid of an idea they will not be allowed to sell it. If you know of any other odd pumpkin flavored foods or drinks please share them in a comment.

As always, if you enjoy what you read at #ThePhilFactor and want to support my bid for President, or Sexiest Man Alive, please hit the Facebook,Twitter, or re-blog share buttons.

  1. Ice Cream, pancakes, Hershey’s Kisses (yes I know it’s candy but messing with chocolate is sacrilege!)

  2. I was going to say potato chips….oops.

  3. Well you didn’t mention ice cream, even though you probably know there is such a thing. Dryers makes a pretty good one actually, goes well with almonds and chocolate…but then again, what doesn’t go well with chocolate? Hey, a blog in itself?

  4. Sounds like a waste of vodka to me!

  5. Hear, hear!!!
    Pumpkin spice latte? Gag.
    Anything else on that list? I don’t even want to consider it. (Shudder)
