The MOD team has been unashamedly loving this Fall weather! We're curling up with all the pumpkiny things & warm blankets. I know pumpkin is hot in memes & "basic" jokes, but I don't even care. I will proclaim my love for pumpkin every single day this Fall! It's THAT good. If you're not on the pumpkin train yet, you're missing out. Here's our favorites to try for yourself! You won't (at least we THINK you won't) regret it!
1. The Classic Pumpkin Pie
I like to think this where all the love began. I have zero facts to back up this claim, but I love the idea that pumpkin started here. Pumpkin Pie is a Thanksgiving staple, & as a child, my ONLY experience with pumpkin in food. What a genius idea to take that amazing flavor & go a little nuts with it. You can find our favorite Pumpkin Pie Recipe here.
2. Pumpkin Cookies
These frosted pumpkin cookies are so soft & decadent! You can find a million different recipes, but here's our favorite.
3. Reese's Pumpkins
I know there's probably NO WAY this can be an actual truth, & it's my mind playing tricks on me, but these Reese's Pumpkins taste better than the cups! So, there's no actual pumpkin in here...but they're in the SHAPE of a pumpkin so I think they still count. Right?
4. Hershey's Pumpkin Spice Kisses
These DO have pumpkin flavor in them, & they are SO SO delicious! It took some hunting to find these at my local grocery store, so I rewarded my efforts by eating the whole bag...HA! But seriously, you NEED these!
5. Pumpkin Pie Candle
You have multiple brand options, some of our favorites are Yankee Candle & Bath & Body works! These fill your home with a rich aroma that will have you craving the real Pumpkin Pie. I like to light mine right before company comes over. It makes my house feel so inviting.
6. Pumpkin Spice Latte
You knew this was coming...This is our absolute favorite. I even like to get this decadent latte way before Fall, & WAAAAAY after it. It's that yummy. You have so many options to sip from, but Starbucks has our heart with this one. They just do it right over there.
