Do you like pumpkin?

Pumpkin is everywhere from lattes to cookies, snack cakes, and more! That would be fine with me but for the simple fact that I do NOT like pumpkin, lol. I love decorating with them and eating roasted pumpkin seeds but I don't like pumpkins unless they're the candy variety.

 

Do YOU like pumpkin? What about all the pumpkin-y treats?

I love pumpkin bread, but I don't get why people put chocolate chips in it. I like it just plain, warmed up, with some butter (or whatever) on it. Yummy!!!!

I don't like pumpkin.  I don't like it in any form.

I don't think chocolate chips would go very well with pumpkin, either, but I suppose some make it sweeter than others? Do you go crazy for all the pumpkin spice treats that come out every fall, like Starbucks' pumpkin spice latte or DQ's pumpkin pie blizzard, etc.?

Not even the roasted seeds or mellowcreme candy (which is really just sugar, lol)?

Does the neverending wave of pumpkin spice specials at restaurants and fast food joints irritate you every year, too?

We carved a pumpkin several years ago and discarded everything but the seeds. We roasted them with Butt Rub seasoning (spice blend available at buttrub.com) and they were AMAZING! My mom and others couldn't believe we just tossed the rest, though, gasping at the horror of NOT making pumpkin pie or anything with it, but none of us likes it except for the seeds, lol. Do you like the pumpkin creamers, shakes, lattes, etc., that come out every year?

 I buy my pumpkin seeds at the store in the fall already roasted, lol. I haven't done them at home since I was a kid and my dad did it. I might try making something with the pumpkin this year. We are growing one our self this year. Well we hope for more than one, but we only have one at the moment on the plant, so it is my youngest daughters since they were the seeds from her easter gift
