Send Help: 10 Unnecessary Pumpkin Spice Things To Enjoy This Fall

by Alexis DiZenzo

'Tis the season for all pumpkin everything.

#PSL isn't the only hashtag you will see on Insta this season.

Pumpkin flavoring has taken the world by storm; there's everything from pasta to burgers to Oreo cookies, and even alcohol is now pumpkin flavored.

The evolution of pumpkin flavoring has completely gone downhill since the creation of the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Where do we draw the pumpkin spice line?

There is nothing better than a mouth full of spices and pumpkin in desserts, but when it comes to burgers, we need to #StopPumpkinSpice2k15.

Who knew those orange, round, oddly shaped things with a stem could be so edible?

And who knew that when the fall season came around, we would find a way to incorporate it into every possible meal.

I wonder how pumpkin spice even came to be; did someone think to smash a pumpkin into a latte and add some spice to it?

Well, we can Millennials for creating the evolution of pumpkin spice. However, it is about time to bring pumpkin spice to a dull roar.

Here are all the unnecessary pumpkin flavored things you can get your hands on this fall season:

1.) Pumpkin Pie Vodka

Because there is nothing better than a bunch of basic white girls getting drunk off pumpkin.

To top it off, it doesn't even taste like homemade pumpkin pie; it is basically more of a burning mouthful of cinnamon.

Unless you are trying to bring back the cinnamon challenge, this is a no.

2.) Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows

Because when would you ever need these?

Unless you are eating them alone as a snack, I don't see what use these could provide.

3.) Pumpkin Spiced Tea

Because we already have PSL, so switching to tea would just be a crime.

With that, tea does not contain any unnatural sugars, unlike every other pumpkin spice flavor we are already used to, so  the flavor just isn't the same.

4.) Pumpkin Body Lotion

Because I think it is about time you stop allowing yourself to smell like foods.

I don't see the point in smelling like food; does it make you more appetizing to other people, or make it seem like you are in need of a shower?

5.) Pumpkin Flavored Dog Treats

Because your dog doesn't know or care what a pumpkin even is.

Dogs really aren't into seasonally foods, so going out of your way to buy pumpkin flavored treats is completely unnecessary.

6.) Pumpkin Spice Soy Milk


Because adding pumpkin flavor isn't going to make the fact that you are drinking soy milk any better.

Might as well just drink a glass of plain soy milk with a piece of pumpkin pie on the side.

7.) Pumpkin Scented Air Fresheners

Because nothing says, “I'm so basic,” like having your entire apartment smell like a pumpkin patch.

Next thing you know, you're going to have vines coming up from your floor boards and giant pumpkins growing in your living room.

8.) The Pumpkin Burger(Burger King Japan)

Burger King

Because Japan has stepped up its pumpkin game to the max, you can now consider that greasy burger healthy with a tad of pumpkin in it.

9.) Pumpkin Spice Pringles


Just because Pringles come in a million and one different flavors does not mean that pumpkin should be added to the list.

Potatoes and pumpkin just don't go. Chips should be lightly seasoned, not overbearing.

10.) Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts

Because over sweetened artificial pumpkin flavor is something we all want to eat … said no one ever.

You know that every new Pop-Tart flavor just gets more and more sweet.

This flavor is just too much sugar to handle.
