It seems right when September rolls around, the shelves are stocked with all things pumpkin. It’s like Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother came into the store late at night, waved her magic wand turning all cookies, coffee, bread, bagels, yogurt, pasta sauce, granola bars, popcorn, dog biscuits and yes, even milk, into pumpkin flavored goodies.
But has it gone too far and have we reached the pinnacle of pumpkin? Data suggests… nope. In 2014 pumpkin products accounted for $361 million in sales, having grown 79% since 2011.
This pumpkin train is not slowing down, even if it is heading off the rails.
But have no fear, Fresh Wave is here! And even if it may be sweater weather, we don’t layer scents.
Next time you are overwhelmed with a mix of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice (but really, where is the pumpkin!?), we suggest you light a Fresh Wave Candle, sniff, smile, and bask in the glow of a fresh-smelling home.
Now tell us, what are some of the craziest pumpkin flavored items you have seen?
