The Ups and Downs of Pumpkin Flavored Foods

As fall rolls around, companies everywhere put out a variety of pumpkin flavored products. The most popular among these products include: Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Spice cookies and Pumpkin Waffles. Some companies, however, display foods that are not so normal. Here are some of the craziest pumpkin flavored foods of 2016:

  1. Pumpkin Tortilla Chips

Tortilla chips are amazing; you can eat them with any sort of dip, and it’s the perfect appetizer or snack. Pumpkin Spice flavored tortilla chips? Not so appetizing. Trader Joe’s sells these seasonal chips, and while they had the right idea, it’s just too weird to try.

  1. Pumpkin Fettuccine

Have you ever heard of pumpkin flavored pasta? Admittedly, I’m sure there are some people who would enjoy that. But, let’s leave pumpkin where it belongs: with desserts.

  1. Pumpkin Flavored Gum

This is by far the weirdest food to be pumpkin flavored. Gum is supposed to be minty or, in some cases, sweet. But, while some sweet gum tastes good, making it pumpkin flavored is a little outlandish.

  1. Pumpkin Flavored Hummus

Hummus is already a food that most people hate, even the idea of it is repulsive to some. However, adding pumpkin to it is a little too much.

  1. Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn

This snack is one for the books. This overly sweet candy is for those who are obsessed with fall…a little too much, perhaps.

  1. Pumpkin Flavored Sauce

Do you ever get tired of plain old red sauce? If, for some reason, you do and want to try something new and exiting, a nice and creamy pumpkin sauce is a great way to switch up your common routine…..Happy cooking!

  1. Pumpkin Flavored Sparkling Water

Feeling dehydrated? Have a lack of the fall spirit? Do not fear, pumpkin flavored sparkling water is here! This cool and unique drink is certain to quench your thirst, and will really get those taste buds going.

  1. Pumpkin Spice Beef Jerky

Just when we thought Pumpkin Spice lattes were enough, BAM! Pumpkin spice beef jerky. Yes, you heard me, there is such thing as Pumpkin flavored dried meat. It’s gross, I know. I think I’ll stick to the original flavor!

  1. Pumpkin Spice Chicken Sausage

With Autumn coming to a speedy start and warm weather coming to an end, some people may be missing summer time and the BBQs they have all summer long. Here’s something you may want to try at your next BBQ: Pumpkin Spice Chicken Sausage… Sounds good, right? Yeah, I didn’t think so either. I believe we’ll all be eating regular sausage at our next BBQ!

  1. Pumpkin Spice Goat Cheese

Mozzarella, blue cheese, Pecorino Romano. These are all cheeses that most of us are familiar with. But Pumpkin Spice Goat Cheese? That sounds a little too stomach churning to me! I mean, come on, goats don’t even know what pumpkins are!!!
