11 Pumpkin Spice Products to Try This Fall
Summer may have just ended, but we’re more than ready for fall with these pumpkin spice products!
Forget the changing color of the leaves, pumpkin spice products hitting store shelves is the new signal that fall has arrived! Pumpkin pie spice was originally created by McCormick in 1934 so there was no longer a need to measure out the individual spices need to flavor pumpkin pie: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. But today’s passion for pumpkin spice can be tracked back to 2003, when Starbucks released its first pumpkin spice latte. Since then, we’ve seen pumpkin spice everything—donuts, bagels, muggins, yogurts, beers, cheeses and way more. Here are some of the newest goodies we’ve got our eye on (and some that you can make at home).
