Pumpkin Spice As Far As the Eye Can See!

The other day I was in the supermarket and one of the end-aisle displays was nothing but pumpkin spice flavored items. Pumpkin spice peanut butter (DELICIOUS!), Jell-o, bread and pancake mix, coffee (whole bean and K-cups), pie filling, and more. And I can't lie, I purchased more than a few of those items on pure impulse. It's Fall and that means everything should taste like pumpkin!
