The rules were simple: if it was pumpkin spice, we tried it

It’s the beginning of fall, and if you don’t live under a rock, you know what fall means: pumpkin spice everything! For three days, we put the pumpkin spice in our life. Every chance we got to try something pumpkin spice, we took it. Some experiences were better than others. One of our personal favorites were the pumpkin spice cupcakes we got from Gigi’s Cupcakes.

Pumpkin Spice Iced Coffee


Pumpkin Body Wash

Day one consisted of pumpkin spice iced coffee, a pumpkin scented body scrub, and a pumpkin spice inspired cupcake. The first pumpkin spice treat we had was a pumpkin spice iced coffee from Starbucks. We all ordered this drink with high hopes of a yummy, energizing boost, but to our disappointment, it was absolutely disgusting. We had to spit it out after the first sip. To continue our pumpkin spice adventures, we tried out a pumpkin scented body scrub. To our surprise, we actually enjoyed this product! It smelled delicious and felt amazing. The last thing we tried on day one was a pumpkin spice cupcake. It was so tasty, and we loved every single bite of it! Day one went much better than we were expecting, and we felt much better about pumpkin spice products.

Pumpkin Spice Candle

On the second day of our pumpkin spice adventure, we went grocery shopping with our mom and picked up some items. My mom wanted some good-smelling candles for the upcoming holiday season, so we told her that we should try out the pumpkin spice candles along with everything else pumpkin spice we could find, however, the store lacked in festive flavors. We bought a pumpkin spice candle from Target for $6.49. After we went to lunch, we decided to pick up some pumpkin spice cookies from Bartram House Bakery.  

Day three began with some pumpkin spice Oreos. They were delicious. They tasted sweet and pumpkiny! We had another pumpkin spice latte right before dinner, which consisted of pumpkin spice sausages. They were the most disgusting things that have ever touched our lips. Good thing the pizza store is right around the corner!

Overall, we had a fun experience trying pumpkin spice everything. Some things were quite delicious and others should have never been made.
