What is the deal with pumpkin spice?
This is the time of year when the world wants to put pumpkin spice in everything. It drives me nuts. Pumpkin spice is one of those things that you don’t think about until someone tells you it’s the “the new hot thing”. Starbuck’s wants to put it in your coffee, bakery's want to put it into your donuts, Baskin-Robbins wants to put in your ice cream, a pumpkin spice bagel. Please no. You can get pumpkin spiced dog treats. Why?
The only proper use for pumpkin spice is in pie. I love pumpkin pie. I do like making my own but lately my pie of choice comes from Costco.

I was talking with my buddy Lon in the tri-cities on the phone the other day and I was moaning about being “so over the whole pumpkin spice thing” and he said “Buddy, have you tried the Pumpkin spice frosty at Wendy’s?” I told him I had not, and he was shocked. He said, “this is one pumpkin spice product I needed to try”. Well, I like a “Frosty” from Wendy's (chocolate) every now and then and I also like my buddy Lon, so I gave it a try.
The verdict, not bad, it was like a cold pumpkin spice bomb in my face.
