National Pumpkin Spice Day

What does cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, and October 1 have in common? They are all part of National Pumpkin Spice Day.


We divide the world into factions. Left vs. right, left vs. right. Solar vs. gas is a comparison between solar and gas. Privacy vs. freedom of information. But if you really want to turn a conversation on its head, divide the room into pumpkin spice vs. anti-pumpkin spice.

Pumpkin spice enthusiasts begin waxing poetically about fall and their favorite flavor as school begins (and some of them begin in early August). Despite this, it isn't all about the pumpkin spice lover. Pumpkin spice items are now available in coffee shops, bakeries, and stores on every corner.

Like no other spice combination, pumpkin spice ushers in the savory-sweet season of fall. On a cool morning, it conjures up images of fall foliage littering paths. But pumpkin spice isn't just a flavor – it's a personal style. The burnt umber, harvest gold, and cinnamon toast sprinkles home décor, clothes, and even decorates parties and weddings.

Pumpkin spice, on the other hand, is a wholesome ingredient that reminds us of a warm hearth and the harvest's bounty. What could be better than that?
