Pumpkin Spice Taste Test

Every year, Kristin and I scope out the grocery stores starting mid-August to see what pumpkin-flavored treats will be making their debut.

We make it a point to give each other our opinions and will buy said treats accordingly.

This year, I thought it would be fun if we gathered as many treats, drinks, and various pumpkin-flavored food items as we could find and reviewed and rated them for you!

Fall Bucket List 2018

I absolutely love seeing the fall bucket list infographics that make their way around Instagram and Pinterest every year; they remind me of all my favorite things about the season and bring me a level of joy and excitement that no season (except Christmas) brings.

That being said, there are always a handful of things on those lists that I either can’t do because of where I live, or they’re things I do every year and don’t feel them necessary to add to such lists (I mean, I definitely don’t need to be reminded to decorate for fall/Halloween – have you met me?)

No Shame in My PSL Game

If you are reading this when it was originally posted, then the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte made their official 2018 debut two days ago – Tuesday, August 28. It’s the earliest it’s ever been widely released, being beaten only by a secret release on August 26 in 2014.

If you have been reading this blog for almost any length of time, especially since I made this post last September, you will know that not only is autumn my favorite season, but I fucking love pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin spice flavored (almost) anything.

And I’m not ashamed of or embarrassed about it. And if you love it, you shouldn’t be, either.
