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.

Top Ten Tuesday! The Ten Worst Pumpkin Flavored Ideas

download (37)

Yes, it’s that time of year again. The time when pumpkin invades anything and everything that can be eaten or drank. Ugh. I love pumpkin pie, but I hate the flavor in anything else. Of these ten abomination to humanity pumpkin flavored ideas, only one is fake. Can you guess what it is? Put your guess in the comments.

10. Burger King Japan’s Pumpkin Bomb Burger: To be honest, I’m surprised this burger only exists in Japan. Also, considering their history of bombing by the United States, it seems to be a cruel joke for an American company to sell the Japanese a “Bomb” burger.

9. Pumpkin Pie Vodka: This is one of those things where you think to yourself either, “Oh hell no!” or “Someone just has too much time on their hands,” or perhaps “They already had to be drunk on vodka to come up with this idea.”

8. Pumpkin Spice Hershey’s Kisses: If Pumpkin Spice was one of the Spice Girls I’d probably say Yum!  Pumpkin flavor in my chocolate? Yuck!

7. Pumpkin Spice Pringles: Yes! Finally pumpkin flavored potato chips. I’m kidding. I can barely stand potato chips (or crisps for my UK friends) that taste like actual potatoes. Why would I want chips tasting like pumpkin?

6. Pumpkin Spice Mini-Wheats: I’m not entirely sure that Mini-Wheats aren’t corrugated cardboard, so I suppose adding pumpkin can’t make them any worse.

5. Pumpkin Spice Condoms: I’m speechless about this one. Can’t even think of a joke that’s funnier than the reality of this.

4. Lucy’s Gluten Free, Peanut Free Pumpkin Patch Cookies: Hmm… you took out gluten and nuts and added pumpkin to cookies? That’s like taking sauce and cheese out of pizza and adding..umm…well.. something really bad, like pumpkin. If my kids misbehaved I’d punish them by making them eat these.

3. Pumpkin Spice Peeps: This is just wrong. The word abomination comes to mind.

2. Pumpkin Spice Flax Granola Bars: Actually I don’t find anything wrong with this. If you’re going to eat something that tastes like crap, why not make it pumpkin flavored crap?

1. Pumpkin flavored soda! When I’m elected President, or Sexiest Man Alive, whichever comes first, I’m going to commission a task force to find the people that make these kind of things and make them stop.

Ok, one of those ten items is not real, but all the rest are. Put your guess which one isn’t real in the comments.
