It’s that time of year again. No, we’re not talking about fall or back to school. Starbucks’ beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte is back.
That coveted cup of Joe might blow your taste buds for joy, but it’s not the only way to satisfy a seasonal fix for everything pumpkin-related. Here are some other things you can buy it will make you see orange.
1. M & Ms
In the past, chocolate lovers could satisfy their pumpkin cravings with M & M’s pumpkin spice flavor. Now the candy giant has unveiled a pumpkin spice latte flavor of the popular candy. According to us every week, the flavor will be available this fall at Target stores.
2. Ice cream
Pumpkin lovers with a sweet tooth can pick up a pint of pumpkin goodness with Ben and Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream Flavor. The limited-batch recipe features pumpkin cheesecake ice cream with a graham cracker swirl. Visit the glacier website to find a store near you that sells the flavor.
3. Bakery products
From freezer to oven, pumpkin products can be found just about everywhere. If you’re feeling adventurous enough to make a batch of your own baked goods, use Betty Crocker’s Limited Edition Pumpkin Bar Mix Pouch to make your own pumpkin creation.
Or, you can eliminate the prep work with pre-made treats. Pepperidge Farm creates delicious limited edition pumpkin cheese cookies. Festive desserts are only available in-store at Wal-Mart. If you would like to order some from you, we have found them on Amazon, too much.
Start your morning with a bagel and coffee – a pumpkin bagel, that is. Bread and bagel maker Thomas sells limited edition pumpkin and spice flavored English bagels and muffins. This year, the delicious treats will be available from September 10.
If bagels aren’t really your thing, maybe Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts are.
The famous breakfast food maker encourages consumers to get their “delicious” with the limited edition Frosted Pumpkin Pie flavor. These Pop-Tarts contain frosting, sprinkles, pumpkin pie filling, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Kellogg’s creation is so popular that we even found it for sale at Amazon.
You don’t just have to eat pumpkin this fall. Pumpkin candles allow you to expand the seasonal staple beyond your taste buds.
There are plenty of scents to suit your taste at Bath and Body Works. For example, the store sells a Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow Candle, a Pumpkin Pie Candle and one Pumpkin Spiced Cheesecake Candle – all for $ 22.50 each.
7. Hand sanitizers
Candles fill your home with a pumpkin scent, but seasonal hand sanitizers can bring the pumpkin scent to your hands as well.
While shopping at Bath and Body Works, check out the retailer’s selection of PocketBac hand sanitizer. Fragrances include Pumpkin Cupcake, Pumpkin Marshmallow Latte and Pumpkin pecan waffles ($ 1.75 each, or mix and match five for $ 6).
If you really feel the urge to celebrate your pumpkin love, you can don a pumpkin outfit this October 31st. There are a lot of Halloween costumes to choose from. At HalloweenCostumes.com, the Adult’s Classic Pumpkin Costume will only cost you $ 8.99.
And don’t forget Fido. PetSmart sells the Martha Stewart Pets Pumpkin Tutu Halloween Dress for $ 13.99 (regularly $ 19.99).
Finally, nothing like buying the real thing. Head to a pumpkin patch or your local grocery store to buy the orange vegetable for yourself. Present it as a decoration or cut it out to make the scariest jack-o’-lantern in the block.
Now start drinking that Starbucks again.
