If you're looking to get a bunch of pumpkin crap from Trader Joe's go in the next few days. Because they have transferred all their pumpkin accouterments into one giant food rack and marked everything down.  And might I suggest starting with: These were les...

Squashtober Spice Countdown Day 27 - Pillsbury Pumpkin Cookies
This was one of the first items that I bought, but I was so utterly convinced that I would hate them, that they sat in the refrigerator for weeks. Mostly it's because I thought that the chocolate chips were white chocolate. And due to an unfortunate situati...

Squashtober Spice Countdown Day 16: Pumpkin Spice Creamer
No idea why it took me so long to get to pumpkin spice creamer. It's probably the most standard pumpkin spiced item of the season. And yes, that's an owl mug. Ol' owly made it through 4 years of college with me. And anyone who went through 4 years of roomma...

Squashtober Spice Countdown Day 15: Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Pretzels
Let me tell you - If you are at any point in your life trying to recreate this noble pursuit of mine, there is no better grocery store than Kroger for pumpkin spiced items. Every aisle endcap you walk past is a veritable cornucopia of fall-flavored items. I...
