Fill in the blank: I'm actually surprised they haven't already come out with a pumpkin spice flavored ___!

I am not a pumpkin spice flavor fiend. As far as I'm concerned, you can take those pumpkin spice-flavored waffles, gum, and cereal and shove em up your gourd! I'm actually surprised there aren't pumpkin spice-flavored vape juice--it will either taste exceptionally good or make me hurl!

I loathe the release of pumpkin spice-flavored stuff, namely because it signals the end of summer time. Summer is my favorite time of year because of the warmth it brings to Mother Nature. Meanwhile, most of my friends are giddy at the thought of chilly, crisp mornings, hot toddy drinks, and autumn leaves. My spirit wanes and my spine hurts, just thinking about how cold I will be come this fall.

Pretty soon, area coffee shops (like Tom Tom Espresso, Mojo's Coffeehouse, will be featuring pumpkin spice lattes. McDonald's just announced they are releasing pumpkin-spice flavored lattes (already?!) and Starbucks will soon after (September 1). This news has some people feeling elated.
