We're not exactly sure when pumpkin spice became synonymous with fall, but we do know that it has. This trendy takeover began with Starbucks lattes and has since been popping up every fall season. This seasonal staple has been making appearances in surprising hosts, like Trident chewing gum or Jell-O. While some of the highlighted products are indisputably mouth-watering, there are a few options we wouldn't mine sitting out.
Even country stars can't get enough of it. Country superstar LeAnn Rimes is a self-proclaimed lover of all things pumpkin spice, tweeting about using the flavor to craft a smoothie in August.
Ryan Follese admittedly took a while to hop on the bandwagon, but updated his followers with a funny tweet to let them know of the monumental moment when it happened.
I just had my first pumpkin spice latte. I tried it for the first time on snapchat. Currently looking for yoga pants and another latte.— Ryan Follese (@RyanFollese) October 28, 2016
Do you know someone with a passion for the pumpkin spice craze? We all do. Thanks to sites like Etsy, a range of novel products are available for gifting to the fall lover in your life; even if that person is yourself.
