    I've always been a fan of allspice, cloves, and cinnamon. But "pumpkin spice" isn't a thing per se.

    The whole pumpkin spice has gone a bit too far.

    Ugh yes. I was at Target the other day and I saw pumpkin spice scented/flavored everything. Pumpkin spice flavored condoms probably sell somewhere. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    Okay, I will admit to having a box of pumpkin spice Mini Wheats and they're pretty good, but I'm not about to go nuts with it.

    I just... I'm really done with people at this point, but the Mini Wheats are good. I can agree with you on that one.

    I can appreciate pumpkin scented candles and the like, and pumpkin spice lattes but there are some things that just... why?

    It went way to far years ago, much like premature Christmas decorating. Every passing year both come out earlier and I loath the holidays just a bit more.

    I'd think not, the more obvious award for capitalistic exploitation is presented to...

    No. It's a flavour and a scent, and people like it. Therefore, people buy more stuff with that flavour/scent. As a result, people make more things with the pumpkin spice favour/scent.

    I've never really tried pumpkin spice stuff for myself, but it seems nice enough. My mum had some pumpkin spice candles for Halloween and they smelled gorgeous. Why do people want to deprive themselves of something so small and inconsequential purely because of the 'basic white girl' stereotype?

    To be honest, I'd buy chocolate anything, and some people would buy pumpkin spice anything. That's not a crime. What's the point in a new flavour if no-one likes it?

    No, if people like pumpkin spice I'm glad there are a lot of products for them.
