Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Posted by tpoole on October 20, 2017

back-arrow.png


As fall brings cooler weather, knit sweaters, and leaves changing colour. It also brings back EVERYTHING pumpkin spice!

And when I say everything, I mean everything. You can find pumpkin spice in teas, lattes, coffee, hot chocolate, candles, doughnuts, muffins, scones, ice cream, m&ms, wine, beer, cough drops, protein powder, mini wheats, pet food, and candles.

trees_and_pumpkins.jpg

So what is pumpkin spice?

Oddly enough pumpkin spice often isn’t made with any actual pumpkin in it. It consists of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves. If these spices remind you of a common flavour or recipe it makes sense, these are the spices that are used when making pumpkin pie. Although many pumpkin spice products aren’t made with actual pumpkin, you can find some that are made with pumpkin puree. If you are curious if the product you are getting contains actual pumpkin or not, check the ingredients label.

Will pumpkin spice be the superior fall flavor forever?

There are many amazing fall foods and flavours that come around this time of the year. Squash, apples, and maple are all very prominent and delicious fall flavours. Although pumpkin spice has been the go-to fall flavour for many years now, there are many different fall tastes,such as apples, cinnamon and anything which is sweet and savory. This fall we have be seeing an increase in maple flavoured items such as coffees, iced teas, yogurt and chips. So heads up pumpkin spice; maple may takeover! For all of you pumpkin spice lovers-- I wouldn’t worry; pumpkin spice likely won’t go far.

Personally, I am a fall lover; the leaves changing, cool weather, the food, pumpkin spice, and everything nice that comes with it. Even though I love pumpkin spice, I am definitely curious to see all of the flavour combinations that will grow in popularity over the next few years that showcase fall fruits and vegetables.

I have my Link TV and I love it!!! My picture is way better then Satellite ever was!!! Couldn't be happier!!
-          Nicole M.

With their newest service Link TV we were part of the early testing and have now signed up for a package, I like the flexibility to pick plans; themed packages or individual stations, the flexibility to adjust a plan at any time, the mobile screening option and the price point!  We had dropped cable tv 5 years ago and were just getting by with digital bunny ears and a couple stations because I was done paying the big $$$. Execulink won us over with their flexibility and price point.
