Every fall as the leaves begin to fall and the temperatures begin to cool another sign of the changing season begins to emerge and that is the retail explosion of pumpkin flavored products. It doesn’t matter where you go, how you get there, if you want to or not but pumpkin is jammed in your face and shoved down your throat. Pumpkin coffee, pumpkin spice, pumpkin latte, pumpkin candles, pumpkin cleaning supplies, pumpkin chocolate, you can even buy pumpkin spice SPAM which literally just made me throw up a little in my mouth…it doesn’t matter what you buy there is a pumpkin or pumpkin spice version of it. What is pumpkin spice anyways? I guess that is beside the point but now that our retailers and grocers are offering more and more vegan products by the day I’m afraid the pumpkin spice trend is going to be hitting the vegan market hard and fast. I already read this morning that Halo top just released a Pumpkin Pie vegan ice cream and yes I am going to buy it and eat the entire thing but I am already preparing for the all pumpkin all everything trend that will be hitting the vegan markets soon.
What pumpkin product are you most likely to try or buy?
