Pumpkin Spice Latte?

Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of blog posts and Facebook updates about the pumpkin spice latte.   And honestly, I don’t understand all the hype.  Granted, I don’t really like coffee and I’m not a big fan of the pumpkin flavor, but really, is it that great that everyone has to talk about it?

To counteract all those posts, I thought I’d tell you about my favorite pumpkin-related item of the fall season.

I don’t know what these are even called…I just call them candy corn, maybe they are called candy pumpkins?  Anyway, I understand these don’t taste like pumpkin and that’s the point!  They are pure sugar and pure delightful-ness.  I like to buy the “Autumn Mix” variety so I can have regular candy corn and the chocolate ones too.

Ooh, so pretty.  No pumpkin spice lattes for me, bring on the candy corn!

    Hooray for ‘fall’ junk food. Love em!! Now, have to go get out my fall decorations. Have had the furnace on for a couple mornings. Cool here at the beach.

  4. Ha, this made me laugh cause I literally JUST did a post yesterday about how my grocery store told me they weren’t carrying pumpkin anymore and I was absolutely TRAUMATIZED! Seriously, who does that? Think I can make pumpkin muffins out of those candy pumpkins?!

    You know what’s also really yummy? Mixing regular candy corn and dark chocolate M&M’s. I think that might be what heaven tastes like.

  7. baaahahahahaha this post rocks!!! Go enter my $10 Hawai’i Starbucks Card giveaway (http://tinyurl.com/638j7sk) so you can go try it for yourself!! You at least gotta try it:)

    Today, I will be on the HUNT to buy the “Autumn Mix” variety so I can have regular candy corn and the chocolate ones too–since I’ve never heard of or even tried chocolate candy corn–hello!

  8. I wish they would make some with JUST the pumpkins!!! They’re my favorite and I’d rather get more sugar…they are bigger than the candy corns after all :).

      they do! they’re called mellowcreme pumpkins… i hate candy corn but love the pumpkins (i’m aware the ingredients are the same)!

      also, try them with salted nuts- so good!

  9. I LOVE those pumpkin candies too! I wait for them all year long. & I’m with G- I will take a pumpkin pie all to myself too 🙂
