Throwback Thursday! 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 where 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 all are 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 or Twitter share buttons.

  1. Pumpkins – urgh. They taste disgusting and my Halloween lanterns always look pathetic next to the over-achieving parents ones.

  2. Last year, Pumpkin spice tacos and pumpkin spice oil change were two local businesses poking fun at the pumpkin a-looza. I’m with you. Bah pumpkin bug!

  3. I need to vote you in since even the smell of pumpkin maks me gas

  4. gag. Gas too, though!

  5. Never understood this phenom either. Why don’t we have chocolate covered everything for Valentines Day? Now THAT I could get behind! 😛

  6. I think I’m going to be ill. I love pumpkin but only in sweets. I think you’re obsessed!! 😉
