    Nope. Nope. Nope. Hard pass on all the "pumpkin" flavors and smells. It is inescapable after September.

    I am really excited for the Winter Dream Tea Latte from Coffee Bean and Tea leaf but that wouldn't come until November. :frown:

    I love pumpkin spice stuff! :redheartpump::redheartpump:

    I am ready.


    That being said, I do agree that it can be a bit of an overkill :lol:

    OK, seeds? Now you're talking! I love to roast pumpkin seeds. They are the best snack ever!

    Back in the 90s I went to San Francisco with my husband (now ex) because he was attending a seminar and I'd always wanted to go there. We arrived around 1:00 am Pacific time and I was starving because I had missed my in flight meal as I was sleeping. We stayed at a lovely Japanese hotel, Hotel Niko.
    The only food that was available that late were club sandwiches and pumpkin soup. They served the
    soup with a dollop of sour cream. I was hooked. We were there 4 days and I ordered it 5 or 6 times.
    My sister now makes it and it's good but not as good as the hotel's.

    Oh, yeah, Japanese pumpkin soup and pumpkin tempura are great. It's not an American pumpkin though---it's a kabocha squash. So for homemade pumpkin soup, you might get better results with a winter squash than with an actual pumpkin.

    Speaking of all these yummy things, I was putting a recipe back in the box and saw I had a recipe for cinnamon pumpkin banana bread. :yummy: I just checked, and have all the ingredients I need on hand, so I'm going to make that today and then make myself a smoothie with the leftover pumpkin puree. Yum. :)

    I usually don't care for pumpkin, but I had a pumpkin spice iced coffee at McDonald's the other day and it was really good. These restaurants all want to be the first to start selling pumpkin spice flavor.

    i don't really 'get' the attraction to pumpkin spice things these days. i like pumpkin, use it in baked goods during the fall months here and there. but i actually just buy apple pie spice and use that to spice both apple and pumpkin baked goods --tastes great to me!

    Yes, kabocha have a very distinctive flavour, don't they? Not quite the same as pumpkin.

    I have a friend who likes pumpkin everything. They go overboard with the pumpkin stuff. There is body wash and even coffee. Somebody gave us some of the coffee. I didn't even open it. I think I passed it on to somebody who was brave enough to drink it.

    My sister sent me a pumpkin 'care package' one year. She went through her grocery store and bought everything she could find that was pumpkin spice flavored--M&Ms (gross!), coffee creamers, cake mixes, cookies, etc., and mailed it all to me. Too funny. :lol:
