Greetings from your Middle Class Guy blogger buddy.

My wife Loves pumpkin spice flavor and it is one of the things that she likes best about the fall.  I like it too, not as much as she does, but I enjoy the pumpkin flavors throughout October and November, two months when it seems like every other thing that I consume is pumpkin flavored.

Here are fifteen things that I have had pumpkin flavored this month, and I am not yet sick of it:

  1. Pumpkin flavored coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, 7-Eleven and Starbucks.
  2. Pumpkin cookies made last weekend by my daughter.
  3. Pumpkin Blizzards at my favorite all-time business, Dairy Queen.
  4. Pumpkin Ravioli from Target.
  5. Pumpkin Smoothie from Jamba Juice.
  6. Pumpkin Almond Milk from Trader Joe’s.
  7. Pumpkin Muffins from Trader Joe’s.
  8. Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s from Trader Joe’s.
  9. Pumpkin cereal bars from Trader Joe’s.
  10. Pumpkin tortilla chips from Trader Joe’s.

I would like to try some Pumpkin Wheat from Shock Top.

By the way, we also purchased a pumpkin, which the squirrels have enjoyed devouring, more than I like the above pumpkiny items.

The squirrels love to eat the pumpkins that we put out every October.
