#PSL Forever

I am going to officially call it...pumpkin spice has jumped the shark. (actually, I think the phrase "jumped the shark" has jumped the shark too)

I'll admit, I've never been much of a fan. In my first job out of college, I sold cans of Libby's Pumpkin when I was at the Carnation Company (now part of Nestle). I think I hit overload back then, so I am probably one of the first to hit overload with the Pumpkin Spice craze now.

Pumpkin Spice Latte: I get it. It comes back every year, it's a big hit, and now it has a hashtag #PSL. I get it. Sounds more like an airport to me, but I get it.

#PSL forever.

But when I went grocery shopping this weekend, I hit overload. Displays of pumpkin spice stuff everywhere. It's amazing how many products are now pumpkin spiced:
- Pumpkin Spice M&Ms
- Pumpkin Spice Oreos
- Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kisses
- Pumpkin Spice Pringles
- Pumpkin Spice Eggos (ok, those kinda sound good!)

I'm sure there's gotta be a Pumpkin Spice Pop Tart and Pumpkin Spice Yogurt brand out there somewhere.

It's too much #PSL. There are room fresheners, marshmallows, almonds, and smoothies.

It goes on and on and on. It's too much.

According to BuzzFeed, here's where it ends...there will be no pumpkin spice toilet paper! No way no how.


Are you a fan? What's your experience? JIM

  1. Great observations- as usual. And I do agree with you, Jim, but I sheepishly must admit we enjoyed Pumpkin Martinis this weekend.
