Is it just me or is there a new pumpkin food or drink item available every week this time of the year?  If you’re a pumpkin spice lover, you’re going to want to give this cool new treat a try!  There’s a new player in the pumpkin spice world and this one I’m not sure if I can feel this one.

Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin pie and that’s about where it ends for me.  Now, I know there are tons of you who just love pumpkin spice in your coffee, tea, and lattes.  But in your Frosty?  Yes, I said in your Frosty.

Wendy’s is the latest to join the pumpkin spice craze and is about to introduce a pumpkin spice-flavored Frosty to its menus for a limited time beginning September 12.  I believe Starbucks was one of the first to introduce the world to the pumpkin spice and from there it has taken a life of its own.

What Other Items Have Joined The Pumpkin Spice Bandwagon?

  • Oreos
  • Jelly Beans
  • Hot chocolate mix
  • Cheerios
  • Kind Protein Bars
  • Cream cheese
  • Frosted Flakes
  • Twinkies

I’m taking a hard pass on all of the above.  Just sayin’.  Did you know the U.S. sales of pumpkin-flavored products this year have already reached sales of over $800 million dollars and this is just through the end of July?

Back to Wendy’s for just a moment.  It personally took me a long time to be able to order a Vanilla Frosty.  I can do it now without feeling like I’m cheating on the old faithful.  It even took me a while to be able to dip my fries in my chocolate Frosty and now I do.  I just can’t see me dipping my fries in a pumpkin spice frosty.  Nope, don’t see it happening.

Now if you are a lover of all things pumpkin spice, go for it and please let me know how it is.  This one is hard for me.
