Hi, I'm Amber, and I'm addicted to pumpkin spice things.
If I see something pumpkin spice flavored, I MUST purchase it.
So if you've ever been curious about pumpkin spice things, this is the post for you. I've reviewed most of the pumpkin spice foods currently on the shelves. I bought so many that I'll have a Part 2 coming soon. But for now, here is what I've tried so far.
1. Hostess Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes
I like these. But I don't. Confused? Me too. The first bite is okay--but then the pumpkin spice taste seems overpowering. I wouldn't buy another box.
2. Little Debbie Pumpkin Rolls.
Amazing. I could eat 4 of them in one sitting. I won't, because I need my pants to button. The cream was perfectly sweet. The pumpkin bit was delicious. Together? They make for a fantastic treat. Or lunch, if you're too lazy to make lunch.
3. Pumpkin Spice Oreos
I forgot to take my own photo of these because I ate them too quickly. Great flavor. Crunchy. Sort of like a pumpkin pie in cookie form.
4. Pumpkin Spice Peeps.
Interesting. Chewy. Dipped in white fudge so you get an added treat. My favorite is still the original flavor, but these make for a fun change.
5. Hammond's Pumpkin Spice Bar.
I believe this can only be purchased at Target. If you like chocolate and pumpkin spice, this is the treat for you. I didn't taste a lot of the pumpkin spice though--I mostly tasted the dark chocolate with a bit of pumpkin spice.
6. Pumpkin Spice Mini Wheats.
These made me wish I liked milk. I eat them plain, because milk is ick to me. You can eat these and pretend you are making a healthier choice because, hey, wheat!
7. Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake.
There are graham swirls mixed in. My mother would call this "decadent." I'm a fan. But be careful: it'll be gone before you realize it. Tip: don't check the calories. Pretend it doesn't suggest a serving size for 4.
8. Pumpkin Spice Cream Frappuccino.
I don't like coffee, so I get my pumpkin spice treat cream based. The first sip always tastes weird, probably because Starbucks uses REAL pumpkin now. (Thanks, Food Babe.) But then my tongue must get used to the real pumpkin, because the odd flavor goes away and it's back to the fantastic flavor I remember.
9. Philadelphia Pumpkin Spice Spread with Pumpkin Spice English Muffins.
I'd eat the whole thing with just a spoon if I could. Wait. I'm an adult. I could if I wanted to. But I won't. Maybe I will. Let's see how this week finishes out. It's delicious spread on toast. Bagels. Candy bars. English Muffins, which smell superb, and taste even better.
10. Hostess Pumpkin Spice Donettes.
My daughter tried to take these from me because she enjoyed them so much. But I'm bigger so I took them back. Maybe I'll share a few more. Maybe.
11. Pumpkin Spice Mallows.
I'd only get one package of these. They are good, don't get me wrong, but I'd rather eat a pumpkin spice roll, ice cream, or donette. Make hot chocolate and add these for a twist!
12. Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses.
If you're trying to ward off a sweet tooth so you won't eat the pumpkin cheesecake ice cream, donettes, and the rolls in one sitting, these are a smart choice. Pop one in your mouth and you get the pumpkin spice taste. If you have willpower, this will be enough. If you do not, thank goodness for the pumpkin cheesecake ice cream.
