Pumpkin Spice

Walking through a major grocery store yesterday, I ran into a cardboard island stacked with pumpkin spice marshmallows. They’re orange-brown, squishy, and shaped like little pumpkins. On the package, there’s a cartoon illustration of cinnamon sticks and a piece of pumpkin pie with a stereotypical (and utterly inadequate, IMHO) dollop of whipped cream on top. And, of course, they’re allegedly flavored something like pumpkin pie –or maybe like the Starbucks seasonal latte, which seems to have started the whole “Pumpkin Spice” trend.
