It's Here! The Pumpkin Bucket List
It's not October, but the pumpkin spice lattes are out in full force, as are pumpkin cookie and cake mixes, and cans of pureed pumpkin. I saw a woman leaving a local super center with two large carving pumpkins just yesterday. Giant pumpkins and pumpkin laced confections and coffees used to appear in October. But folks loved them so much (translation: they brought in tons of profits), that companies decided to shelve them earlier so that the public could enjoy them longer (translation: so the companies could make more money).
