Hey you! Don't eat that, eat this!

Every year, around late September or early October, pumpkin season starts. When I was a kid, there wasn't much pumpkin flavored foods... pie and bread were really about it.
Then at some point a few years back, somebody realized that pumpkin is a flavor that can be used for all sorts of wacky treats! This blog is primarily about those pumpkin items.
Typically, if it's pumpkin flavored, I will try it. If it has pumpkin in the name, there is a strong chance I will try it. The weirder, the more fun.
In order for this to not be a September - December only blog, I'll also highlight other weird foods (typically prepackaged, mass produced stuff) as well. There will also be a healthy dose of beer reviews.

Cinnamon Frosted Pumpkin Cookies

Found these at Tom Thumb last weekend. I was afraid these were going to be overpowering with the cinnamon and frosting, especially since I'm not a fan of frosting or excessive cinnamon. However, these blend together very well and were highly enjoyable. The cookie itself has a nice pumpkin flavor and the cinnamon frosting is just about the perfect partner.
It's a soft cookie, which threw me off at first. I mean, REALLY soft, like "I had trouble getting it out of the package because even the slightest pressure started to squish the cookie" soft.
Not a bad find for this early in the season. I'll definitely have to check the Tom Thumb bakery again.
