Since it’s that time of year and the trend for the last few years is to “pumpkin spice it up” everything, you’re bound to walk into your grocery store, bakery, coffee shop and see tons of stuff with pumpkin spice flavor – maybe even stuff you didn’t know could be made into pumpkin spice flavor. I thought it would be fun if post about what we’ve tried and what our thoughts are about it. Of course, we welcome dissenting opinions too, so feel free to defend your favorite pumpkin spiced foods and beverages.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin O’s – not worthy
First bad sign was someone left this in the office kitchen as ‘free’, so I should have known.
More a puffed rice consistency than a Cheerio like consistency. Pumpkin spice tastes “sprayed on” if you will. Too sweet and artificial tasting.
Twinings Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Bags – not worthy
How can you mess up a nice warming flavor like pumpkin spice and tea? Well you can, and pretty badly. This stuff was so bad, I had to do the" drop it in the lunch room and leave it for coworkers". This makes the TJ Pumpkin O’s taste all natural. By far one of the most artificial tasting of all pumpkin spice goods I’ve had.
