October is upon us and that only means one thing to a foodie: pumpkin is back in season! Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin beers & ales, pumpkin cookies and the list can go on and on but we only have so much time 🙂
The 2014 fall season introduced some new pumpkin flavored items from companies that made you think if it’s all just a bit too much. Check out the list below of some items introduced this year that took “thinking outside the box” to another level:

- Wrigley’s Extra Spice Pumpkin Gum – this seasonal item is available at Target stores nationwide through November 1st
- Nabisco Pumpkin Spice Crème Oreo – With a bright orange crème filling flavored with cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg, this recent addition to the Oreo family was released on September 24 and will be available for 6-8 weeks at your grocery stores
- Rossi Pasta Pumpkin Spice Fettuccini – This gourmet item infused with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger & cloves is available online at RossiPasta.com. At $7.50 per 12oz package, you can have your fill of pumpkin flavored carbs 🙂
- Country Crock Pumpkin Spice Spread – Another seasonal item available in your grocer’s refrigerated aisles will be sure to turn heads once it hits the shelves
- Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds – Perhaps these will be making an appearance at your next holiday get-together? Either way, Planters decided since everyone else had a “pumpkin something”, they can hitch a ride on the bandwagon too!
