Flavors of fall out already!

I just finished a box of Eggo's pumpkin spice waffles - a little early in the year for fall flavors, but they are darn tasty!

any other fall products out already?

  1. Pumpkin beer! My favorite is Shlafly pumpkin ale.

    1. Just saw Pumpkin Reese's Peanut Butter Cups--had never heard of that one before. Anyone tried it?

        pumpkin in the peanut butter cup or pumpkin shaped peanut butter cups? Cause I'm thinking pumpkin IN with the PB and chocolate would be gross...

          They are pumpkin shaped. I know people that like the holiday ones better because they think it is fresher.

            Ohhhh, duh. Guess I'll pass these by.

              i like them better because they have more peanut butter. :)

              1. re: jujuthomas

                Agreed. The peanut butter to chocolate ratio is so much better in the holiday peanut butter cups. I believe the Easter eggs have the best ratio.

                I have a stockpile of several packages of the Reese's Easter eggs in the freezer, courtesy of my husband, who doesn't understand why I think that they are better, but smiles and indulges me anyway.

        2. Starbucks launches the Pumpkin Spice Latte tomorrow (9/4).

            That's one of my favorites. I rarely go to Starbucks but I always find an excuse when their pumpkin spice latte is back.

          2. I guess labour day weekend represents the end of summer and the start of fall, so not so early.

            Nestle have their halloween chocolates out. They're the same thing but with a new name, such as scAERO and Coffin Crisp.

              I've already seen Christmas stuff at CostCo. It's 94 degrees out, and they want me to look at snowy scened Christmas cards??

            2. Down here in FL, Fall doesn't start until Hurricane Season ends.

                Down here in Florida, summer sometimes doesn't end until well after Christmas.

                Although it is nice to drink a cold beer on the porch, while enjoying a BBQ, fish fry, or a crab/shrimp boil on a hot sunny day in late December...
