That’s Enough Spice! – Raleigh Magazine

Pumpkin spice and everything not nice—a few foods that make us say “ew”?

Make no mistake—we love pumpkin spice as much as the next fall flavor fanatic (Thursday’s are PSL day at the RM office!), but some of the seasonal snacks go way too far. Between September to November, pumpkins pummel the flavor market, most notably found in lattes, muffins, cookies and the like. Here, we’ve rounded up some fall foods that cause us pause. Would you give these, ahem, interesting pumpkin products a try?

Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Trash Bags

“Pumpkin spice is so trash.” Said the creators of the cinnamon pumpkin spice-scented trash bags, probably. If eating it isn’t enough, toss your pumpkin spice leftovers into the bin, also flaunting the aroma of the autumn fruit. What a waste?
