Friday Fun…Pumpkin Yes or No?


We’re barely into September and everywhere I Look I see pumpkins and ads for pumpkin spiced this and pumpkin flavored that. 

Many of my friends can’t wait for the “pumpkin” season. They’re ready for their seasonal Coffeemate Pumpkin Spice Liquid Coffee Creamer.  I also wonder if all those cars I see at the drive-thru of Starbucks are ordering Pumpkin Spice Latte. 


Me? Can’t get into it. In my whole life, I’ve had just 2 slices of pumpkin pie. I say give me CHOCOLATE!!!


And you?  Are you a pumpkin person??

Kat Palmiotti judging by some of the comments here, there aren't a lot of them. I like seeing real pumpkins though. 

Wayne Martin you know, I wouldn't even know what goes in a pumpkin pie or how to make one.

Nina Hollander, Broker same here. I'd rather have an apple or chocolate pie!!!! That said, we always have a pumpkin pie for others at Thanksgiving. 

Rocky Dickerson oh my gosh, don't even go there!!!!  I know they have Halloween candy out now but there's no way I could keep it at my house that early. My big child would eat it all.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker oh yes...a good piece of dark chocolate and I'm ok with that. That said, I wouldn't turn down the Godiva chocolate cheesecake at the Cheesecake  Facotry. 

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS it's your season then. Better get them now before Christmas and everything will be peppermint!!!

I do prefer chocolate mocha mint over pumpkin spice, Kathy! An occasional pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling is a sweet treat but not a big fan.

I love Pumpkin Spice Lattes and creamers.  And, I look forward to autumn, when they are in season.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!  Do you remember the Godiva chocolate cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory?  Give me that any time of the day. 

Myrl Jeffcoat they should have it all year since there seem to be many who love it.

Yes and I would choose that any day before pumpkin, Kathy. Of course, I do make a baked pumpkin cream cheese cheesecake that many people enjoy!

I love pumpkin pie and I enjoy a pumpkin muffin, but all the other stuff flavored pumpkin for the season is way over the top for me.

Hi Kathy,

I like pumpkin pie, but my husband is not a fan. So during the holidays, I get a pumpkin pie and another pie.  If I can find rhubarb, I will get that, but I also have found a rhubarb and cranberry pie, which goes over well.  I have to have a taste for a pumpkin or spice drink.  It is rare that I get one.

I'm not a fan of pumpkin pie or pumpkin latte' .... for pie I'll take an Apple & Cinnamon any time.  For a hot drink, I love coffee with some whipping cream

I'm  not over the top but I do like a little seasonal pumpkin. I usually make pumpkin bread at least 1 time in the fall. It isn't too sweet. I like the Christmas season specialties more than the pumpkin.
