Hello friends! I am back with another unusual post, and this one is about my pumpkin spice obsession, which you may have already known about if you follow my Instagram. This year I decided to take my obsession to a whole 'nother level, and, as you can tell from the title of the post, I'm going to go on a hunt for pumpkin (spice) related (food) products. I'll be posting on mainly Instagram, but I will get back and post it on this blog post, so it will be updated throughout the season. I'm not sure if I'll be able to find a lot of the more popular products, or even buy them [because what if it's something I hate, but pumpkin spice flavored?] but I'll try.

Okay, let's begin!

Starbucks Pumpkin Bread

Starbucks is pretty easy place to find pumpkin food items [ahem, their trio of pumpkin pastries, plus the famous PSL, all of which I'll be purchasing this year] so this was first up on my pumpkin kick!

Costco Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

Well, this is a new item from Costco! Sadly, I didn't get to purchase this because I already had too many sweets in the house when I went shopping, so hopefully Costco will still be making and selling these during my next visit.

Betty Crocker Pumpkin Bar Mix and Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix

Another thing I had to pass up because I had too much stuff in the house. I remember they had these last year, but the packaging wasn't so Fall-themed. I also remember Target having a lot of these on clearance near the end of the season, so maybe that's when I'll pick them up.

Pillsbury Pumpkin Creme Cake Mix and Perfectly Pumpkin Cake Mix

As I was wallowing through Target [because it was the first day of school], I happened upon these two items, alongside Caramel Apple cake mixes, for the fall season. I didn't buy them that day, but I will buy at least the Perfectly Pumpkin cake mix, since I don't know if I need a bundt cake pan for the first one.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Muffin

Pictured: PSL + Muffin
Eaten on: Monday, September 9, 2013
First PSL of the season! Many more to come. Plus, I was surprised that the Starbucks I went to still had more than one of these muffins by 4pm! They usually run out really quick. Maybe they stocked up on a lot this year. Yay :>

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Frappucino

Drunk on: Wednesday, September 11, 2013
I originally wasn't going to buy this... but I gave in. It was really hot that day! It was so cinnamon-y, and so freaking good. No regrets.

Dunkin' Donuts Iced Pumpkin Coffee

Pictured: Mildly blurry pic of the drink
Drunk on: Friday, September 13, 2013
I remember getting this last year, and this trip to DD was no different. I think my friend and I said the same exact things:
Me: "Oo! Pumpkin spice! But from DD! Oh wait, the hot one has white chocolate. I hate white chocolate."
-After drinking coffee-
Maggie: "It's not bad, but it's a tad too sweet."
Me: "Meh."
Yeah, this pretty much sums up the whole drink, if you must know. Side note: you can't see it in this picture, but the straw was too long for this cup size. Think Venti sized straw stuck into a Tall cold cup [at Starbucks, obviously].

Archer Farms Pumpkin Spice Coffee K-cups

*This picture, alongside a lot of the following pictures, was from Target. I couldn't buy anything because I had about $15, which is an insufficient amount for all this stuff anyway. Plus, I wasn't going home after that trip, so I didn't want to lug around all of it anyway. I'll buy a lot of these on Tuesday. Promise.*
There's a reason why I didn't even consider buying this product...and it's because I don't have a Keurig, although I think they're pretty damn cool. However, I think I'll stick with my coffee machine. If you do have a Keurig, well, lucky you.

Maxwell House Pumpkin Spice Beverage Mix

Seen on: Friday, September 13, 2013
This, I definitely have never seen before. I'm quite excited for it, since I like stuff like hot cocoa mixes.

Archer Farms Pumpkin Spice Ground Coffee

Pictured: Bag of ground coffee plus a whole lotta sale signs
Seen on: Friday, September 13, 2013
I saw this last year, I think, and I wasn't sure if I was too into this product...The problem is that flavored ground coffee doesn't have as potent as a flavor of other things like the creamer that you'd usually put in your coffee. So, while I'm not expecting too much out of this, I might just buy it anyway...

Tazo Seasonal Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

Seen on: Friday, September 13, 2013
This is certainly new. I don't even like chai that much, but it'll be interesting to see how it goes together with the pumpkin spice.

Frosted Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts

Pictured: I think this might have been the last box of these Pop-Tarts... oh no.
Seen on: Friday, September 13, 2013
I had these last year, and they were quite good. The filling does remind you of pumpkin pie filling (it's probably the cinnamon) and the crust tastes, well, like the crust of a pie. So, yeah, probably gonna buy these again.

Archer Farms Pumpkin Spice Instant Oatmeal

Pictured: Box of Yum. Is this even seasonal?
Seen on: Friday, September 13, 2013
Instant Oatmeal?! Yeah, I kind of expected this. Good thing I like oatmeal. Want this!!

Archer Farms Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mix

This stuff is definitely here all-year round. The picture makes it look so good ;_; Buying pancake mix is a sin...but for you guys... I might do it.

Archer Farms Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pictured: Beautiful jar of spice

The actual spice! We always hear pumpkin spice, but rarely do we actually think of a jar of the stuff. But here it is. The ingredients read: Spices (including nutmeg and cinnamon). Who are you trying to fool?

UGH wow that was long. More to come! /muffled sobs in the background.
Yes, this is kinda outdated (according posting times and whatnot) because  I NEVER GOT AROUND TO UPLOADING IT. So the parts that are pictureless, sorry, but I am way lazy and don't feel like fixin it up and making it look nice. I WILL be adding more to this!
