Ahhhhh, Pumpkin Spice!!!

Todays's blog post dedicated to my daughter, Rachael, who love's all things "Pumpkin Spice"!

One of the most aromatic scents in the world - Pumpkin spice.  Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice....just sensory overload!!  Imagine the scent wafting through your house, of a fresh Pumpkin Pie baking in the oven.  Ahhhhhhhh.   Pretty soon Starbucks will have their "Pumpkin Spice Latte" (daughter Rachael and I worship these), and my local grocery store will start selling it's Pumpkin Spice coffee beans (for grinding) as well as the limited edition Pumpkin Spice variety of International Delights coffee creamer, and I can't wait!  I could drink this stuff all year long.  Seriously.

Well, while browsing Etsy the other day it occurred to me that there may be some fabulous offering in my favorite scent - and sure enough, check out this treasure trove of yummy goodies!!

From KatherynMD (of the fabulous coffees!) comes this awesome Pumpkin Spice Coffee. She says, "Pumpkin Spice, a delicious blend of Pumpkin & Fall Spices. This is a medium bodied coffee. Fantastic plain or make your own Latte! ♥ GREAT AS ICED COFFEES FOR SUMMER TOO ♥" (Iced coffee - now why didn't I think of that!!!?) $11.45 per pound and she will also customized the label!! That's awesome!

And then there are these Pumpkin Spice Cake Truffles, from Lollidreams.  (I'm in love.) "Delicious pumpkin spice cake with the perfect balance of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. All the tastes of autumn desserts in each cake truffle. The cake balls are hand-dipped in white chocolate or milk chocolate. Each is then decorated with homemade gum paste pumpkins and chocolate vines and stems. Almost too cute to eat, but you'll want to savor every morsel!"  These come 18 truffles in a box for $27.00

And from Holiday Candy Lane, come this amazing looking Pumpkin Pie Spice Bread with Cinnamon Struesel Topping.   "Delicious! Freshly baked to perfection are these 6" Pumpkin Pie Spice loaves with a scrumptuous cinnamon streusel crumb topping that is addictive! A great treat to have in the house and is a cute harvest bread to send as a gift."  2 freshly baked loaves for $25.00.

And for the non-edible scent lovers - try this fabulous offering from SatinandBirch, Pumpkin and Spice Holiday Soap!
