Happy Fall Holidays, people! That time of year when YOU CAN’T ESCAPE THE PUMPKIN. While I respect the fed-up who say they will not allow a pumpkin flavored crumb to touch their lips, I decide to double down when Barbara’s sent me their Puffins limited edition pumpkin cereal and just see how much gluten-free pumpkin, pumpkin spice, and pumpkin rando foods I could eat! I also made my family, and here’s what we thought.
Puffins Limited Edition Pumpkin Cereal
The Girl-I don’t usually like Puffins, but this tastes good.
The Boy-I’m not much of pumpkin guy.
Hubs-Awesome. I’m going to have these tomorrow morning for breakfast. Are Puffins from Iceland?
Moi-It might just be the Paleo diet talking, but this is the most delicious cereal I’ve had in weeks.
Pumpkin Spice Peeps
Actually dipped in white fudge, Peeps just took things a bridge too far.
The Girl-I bet the Peeps are going to be horrible. (after eating) Amazing. Can I have yours, Mommy? Too sugary to hate!
The Boy-I think I’m going to literally hate this. (after eating) Mmmmm! This is amazing.
Moi-That is terrifying.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin O’s
Yes, I know. Anything circular and oat-like is not awesome for celiacs right now. So I only popped one in my mouth.
Hubs-These are also good.
The Boy-I want these for breakfast tomorrow.
The Girl-It’s fine….for pumpkin stuff.
Moi-Not tasting pumpkin.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Coffee
Talking the children into trying black coffee was easier than I thought.
The Girl-It tastes like coffee. (frowny face)
The Boy-It tastes pretty cool.
Hubs-Delish. Upgraded the coffee
The Boy-Why does it look kind of weird? You don’t taste the pupmkin, but you don’t taste the coffee.
Moi-I prefer just the coffee, to be honest. But that’s probably because I’m a psychopath.
Cascade Ice Pumpkin Pie Sparkling Water
Now there are two words you never dreamed would go together: “water” and “pumpkin.”
The Boy-I’m never trying this ever in my life. NO. (5 minutes later) Okay, I love the pumpkin soda. As seen here-
The Girl-I love it.
Moi-This tastes like baby aspirin. (Kids, “Yum!” Me, “That’s not yum.”)
Terra Pumpkin Spice Sweets Chips
The Boy-These are really good.
Moi-Very Terra. Solid.
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Tortilla Chips
The Girl-You can’t taste the pumpkin.
Hubs-I can totally taste the pumpkin.
The Boy-I like these! Actually, no.
