  • This Has Gone Too Far!

    Posted by Sgt. Mom on October 21st, 2019 (All posts by )

    This pumpkin spice thing has just about gone too far!
    Pictorial evidence below the fold. And this is for real – I spotted them this morning at the Bulverde HEB grocery store.

      I purchased some deeply discounted pumpkin spice flavored coffee last year. But only for the deep discount. I will stick with hazelnut flavored.

      If customers decide that pumpkin spiced flavored doggie treat is too much they won’t purchase it.

      In addition, once the dog food is purchased the dogs will make the decision on further purchases. Dogs won’t eat something if they don’t like its smell. Which means that selling that dog food in such big containers is risky- unless they have already taste-tested it on dogs. My prediction is that there will be a lot of customers wanting a refund after their dogs refused to eat even one of those.

      Frankly, I hope that the whole thing is a joke, and that the Greenies company hasn’t sunk too much into it.
      I’ll know, when the Pumpkin Spice doggie toothbrushes show up after New Years on the ‘severely marked down’ shelf.

    3. Assistant Village Idiot Says:

      Pumpkin spice tends to be a white-girl thing, so getting their attention for doggie treats is good marketing.

      This is mild, though it is hard to tell which ones are real and which are fake. I’m pretty sure the bagels are real, but the tampons are fake. But who knows, really? People selling product have got to make a living somehow, and you can’t blame ’em for trying.

      Local grocery store clearance racks will be loaded with pumpkin spice stuff in a week @75% off or better. Occasionally there’s a really good deal that I can eat although I can’t think of one right now. I bought a bunch of pumpkin spiced instant oatmeal for my nephew last year and he eats it only when there’s absolutely no other food in his apartment.

      Wrap your head around this one: Pumpkin Spice Flavored Condoms.

      This was a hoax from back around 2014, but a friend recently confided in me that he’d actually seen such a thing in a truck-stop men’s room somewhere in the Midwest. For sale. In a vending machine.

      It means one of two things, to my mind: Either we’ve reached peak Pumpkin Spice, or the end times are upon us.

      Why should your dog not suffer with the rest of us?

      Why should any animal not suffer as we do?

      We need a Dr. Seuss rhyme on pumpkin spice. I do not like pumpkins spice. AT ALL. I don’t get it. Sure pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving and Christmas, maybe. But now, in Texas? Give me a break, we are just hoping this little cool front sticks around, no need for pumpkin spice. Thank you very much.

      Immerse yourself in the inevitability of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and sugar, Ruth.

      Yuck. But when those same spices are combined with cumin, coriander, and turmeric in a savory Indian/Pakistani recipe: Yum.
