Pumpkin Spice Insanity

pumpkin-spice-insanity

Pumpkin. Yes. But not in everything…

What has happened in our crazy consumer driven society? A devious plot  is at hand to render all food items  pumpkin spiced this season.

Heaven help us! Stop the insanity.

For the love of Oreos,  people!  Some things need to be left alone.

I, myself, am a devoted pumpkin enthusiast. Being  a pumpkin enthusiast means I will not buy pumpkin pie spiced or artificially flavored pumpkin  purchases. Remember, pumpkin  spice is heavy on the cinnamon. I want pumpkin items that actually have REAL PUMPKIN  in them. I try to avoid the purchase of highly processed artificially flavored food. 

There is something terribly sad about artificially  flavored pumpkin items.  It’s like an aluminum Christmas tree. Tragic, I tell you.

Purchase the real stuff.

Below  are a few pumpkin recipes I found on Pinterest that are truly yummy. They are not my recipes, but they are heavenly in the pumpkin department.

Cinnamon Pumpkin bread.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Pumpkin Spice Cookies.

Pumpkin Waffles.

Pumpkin cheesecake anything (Oh my…yes!)

If you are a pumpkin enthusiast…like me…

Give the artificially flavored pumpkin pie spiced craze the boot! Enjoy real pumpkin!

Food manufacturers are making a fortune off of pitiful consumers by promising a product to be remembered for its pumpkin flavor. Sadly, most pumpkin flavored products are only remembered because they taste awful.

Save your money. Buy a can of pumpkin and a jar of pumpkin pie spices. Bake something delicious that is not loaded with preservatives and artificial flavorings.

Go real…Go pumpkin.

This post is probably considered trivial to those of you who do not fancy pumpkin. 

Oh well…
