Pumpkin Spice - Have You Indulged?

While the general consensus on DL is that pumpkin spice is the most frauish abomination, short of "Live, Laugh, Love", I bet that at least 1/2 of you gave in to temptation and bought something. Whether it was the latte (and I hope you cradled your mug) or some Trader Joe's ice cream or salsa...admit it, you at least thought of, or bought some.

I will start by admitting I buy the waffles every year in bulk and freeze them.

Never have I ever. I don’t even eat pumpkin pie.

Was it really necessary to start ANOTHER thread on this topic?

I bet OP was really into cupcakes and bacon 10 years ago. He also thinks jokes about Florida are funny.

Pumpkin spice anything is repulsive.

I did get suckered into getting an ice cappuccino and I didn't like it. Way too sweet. It tasted like liquid pumpkin pie.

R3 - never cared about cupcakes and saw them as an annoying topic of older or suburban women. I think I last ate eggs and bacon 2010 because a hookup made breakfast but other than that, I avoid it. I did go balls out over my other fellow expats and try Romanian bacon known as "slanina" but only because a colleague made it on his family farm after killing the hog as per tradition at Christmas. It's essentially pure pork fat, marinated in brine, smoked and coated with paprika and served with black bread, moonshine and raw red onion halves often crushed by the fist and soaked in red vinegar and peppercorns. You can also just roast it over the fire and eat it or add it to any dish canned out for a fatty, charbroiled and smokey taste. A real peasant dish. Obviously, once that slab was gone, no more bacon for me...and let's not even start about meatless substitutes that sound like a lab experiment. It was a once in a lifetime thing so I am glad I gave it a shot. Harcore but tasty as hell.
