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.

Betty Crocker Quick Cookies

Weird Ass Candy

Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows

Holy crap these things are awesome! They add to pumpkin to everything. I've used them in my hot chocolate and I've made two batches of Rice Krispy Treats with 'em. Maybe I'll try some s'mores!

Wasatch Pumpkin Ale

Beer from Utah. Gift from my boss. Decent pumpkin ale, good pumpkin flavor, but doesn't mix well. A lot like the Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale, like soda water with pumpkin flavor. Worth a taste, but not much of a repeat purchase.

Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds

And another food manufacturer jumps on the pumpkin bandwagon. Well, hello Mr. Peanut! Mr. P is happy to present his "Pumpkin Spice Almonds" for your consumption.

Damn, these things are good... they remind more of cookies than nuts. Heavily dusted with the pumpkin spice mixture, these things are just phenomenal. Brilliant even. So good that, I'll have to try the next Limited Edition Seasonal Flavor, Creme Brulee!
