The Latest Foods and Fads With This Delicious Trend
By: Brielle Sparacino
The phrase “pumpkin spice” has come to be the epitome of an UGG boot-wearing, infinity scarf-toting “basic white girl,” and anything with the association of pumpkin spice is now meant as an insult.
Nevertheless, the smell of pumpkin spice has become well-loved by many, which has only increased its popularity.
The widely-known scent is so popular now, that it has snuck its way into various coffee flavors, candles, and even more, ordinary food products. After all, who doesn’t want pumpkin spice flavored butter?
One of the newest and possibly weirdest items that pumpkin spice has been incorporated into is Native Deodorant.
This limited edition deodorant scent by the brand, Native, is only around for the fall season, but the good thing is that the brand uses all-natural, nontoxic ingredients in their products.
So, at least you don’t have to worry about getting an allergic reaction when you voluntarily let your underarms smell like the inside of a Starbucks.
Pumpkin spice-flavored cereals have been popping up in supermarkets as well.
Cheerios and Life have both made their debuts with their latest pumpkin spice creations, where you’ll most likely be able to savor the enticing scent a bit more than in Native’s deodorant.
For hardcore Ben & Jerry’s lovers, they’ve recently released a Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor that is sure to taste the way autumn feels.
The ice cream company is well-known for making unique and sometimes wacky flavors, but their most recent addition is sure to get the pumpkin-loving crowd in the spirit of fall.
An abundance of candy companies have also made sure to stir up some hype for the beginning of one of the cozier seasons by pulling out every pumpkin spice-flavored stop they know of.
Mars, the parent company of M&M’s, has given a new spin to these chocolate candies by giving the public what they may or may not have wanted: a white pumpkin pie M&M flavor.
While it isn’t clear on how big of a hit this flavor will be with the masses, it’s an innovative addition to the company’s ever-growing collection of ideas.
Kit Kats has unveiled a pumpkin creation as well; they’ve recently introduced a pumpkin pie flavor of their own into supermarkets across America, and although we can’t make any assumptions, this newest pumpkin pie-flavored creme-covered wafer is most likely limited edition for the fall season.
Next in line in the pumpkin parade is Rice Krispie Treat’s brand new pumpkin pie flavored marshmallow bar.
While there aren’t really any cons to this new and improved treat, a definite pro for consumers is that it’s only 90 calories in comparison with the more chocolatey treats currently on the market.
Unsurprisingly, Peeps, which is arguably the sugariest treat of them all, emerged with a Pumpkin Spice Latte flavor of their own.
The popularity of Peeps is questionable, but maybe the new PSL flavor will cause some people to have a change of heart.
Lastly, the most talked-about pumpkin spice creation of the season is Starbucks’ new Pumpkin Spice Latte.
If you were to give the new drink a quick Google search, you’d find it aesthetically pleasing, especially if you’re an avid coffee/latte lover. The drink, like many other pumpkin flavored products, is limited edition, but it’s something you either love or you hate.
In the end, it really all comes down to how much you love the flavor of pumpkin spice.
If you’re dedicated to using and consuming everything pumpkin spice, then fully immersing yourself into fall’s most popular trend is the only option.
If you can live without pumpkin spice scented deodorant, well, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
