Pumpkin Spice Is Too Much


Alex Fowler, Sports Editor

Let’s talk about pumpkin spice for a second. 

Pumpkin spice – made with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves.

So delicious, right?


Pumpkin spice is overrated.

Once September rolls around, stores are flooded with pumpkin spice flavored everything.

“It’s too much,” I tell myself.

I do not need to constantly see pumpkin spice flavored drinks, chips, perfume, and everything in between.

Not to mention the horrendous “Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice” t-shirts. Just why? I don’t understand the hype over it.

Plus, the season of fall has so much more to offer than just silly pumpkins.  

Pumpkin spice has been going strong for years and years. I believe it’s time to put it to rest for once and for all.

I can’t spend all of September through November living off pumpkin spice flavored things. I will lose my mind.
