Pumpkin Pushers

Here we go again.

Every year at this time, we get overloaded with pumpkin everything.

Pumpkin coffee drinks.
Pumpkin beer.
Pumpkin cake.
Pumpkin french toast.

It gets worse.

There's pumpkin spiced potato chips (yes, really).
Pumpkin flavored croutons.
Pumpkin flavored butter.
Pumpkin spiced nuts.

On and on it goes. I've barely scratched the surface. There's nothing off limits. If you can think of it, some company has pumpkinized it (to coin a phrase).

I refuse to buy any of these products. Someone has to take a stand.

This is consumerism gone wild. It makes the Christmas craziness look tame by comparison.

You could talk me into making pumpkin pie. In fact, I've done it for Thanksgiving many times. But that's different. Pumpkin pie is traditional, and it's delicious. Pumpkin Spiced Coffee "Sauce" is neither.

Please. Join me in eschewing these ridiculous, superfluous, disgusting pumpkin products. Maybe, just maybe, if enough of us do it, some of these companies will stop making these products.

And the world will be a better place because of it.
