SLS: Is it too soon for pumpkin flavored everything?

Passed the Starbucks kiosk at the store yesterday and saw they are already doing Pumpkin Spice lattes. I think they used to wait until closer to October, but here it is September and I'm not about to complain. I also noticed the Pumpkin Pie ice cream is out. Put pumpkin and nutmeg in Brussels sprouts and I'd probably eat those too! But I wonder if it will lead to pumpkiny goodness burnout. Too soon, or is it always time for pumkin flavor?

  • Yes, I LOVE pumpkin everything and as long as there is 90 degree weather I can not get into the festive mood! Looking forward to the cooler season, even though it means extra, too long winter!!

  • I"m biased because I love those latte's. I guess if they can start putting Christmas decorations out about October, pumpkin in September is acceptable, especially when in tastes that good. Can't wait for the gingerbread one to come out!

  • It is not too soon! I LOVE pumpkin flavored or scented anything! You have to try Coldstone's pumpkin ice cream with graham cracker pie crust and whipped cream! I also just ordered the Pumpkin Spice body stuff from Bath and Body Works. They don't have it in the store, but they do have it online. I've already been using a bar of soap that's pumpkin scented, and I've also had my pumpkin scented candles lit. I am am ready for fall, can ya tell? :)

    Here's a bump!

  • I have already bought some pumpkin scented candles, but havent lit them yet. I always think they bring the holiday stuff out too soon.
