PSL: The Weirder The Better
As soon as cooler weather begins knocking on our door, the aisles of supermarkets and stores begin preparing us for fall — aka Pumpkin Spice Latte season. What started as a simple trend with popular coffee chain Starbucks has turned into a marketing phenomenon where nothing is safe. NOTHING.
I’ve compiled a top 10 list of some pretty random pumpkin spice things I’ve found on Instagram of real (yes, real) items that are for sale this season. There is nothing #basic about this. If you’re a die hard PSL fan, you may already own one or two of these. If not, enjoy — this season is for you!
As long as it fights the Louisiana heat, sign me up. Thought I can’t imagine sweating and what that would smell like.
2. Bread and Butter
You BUTTER believe it! 🎉🎃🎉 Yes, there is #pumpkinpiespice actual butter out there! @landolakesktchn 😱🎃🙆🏻 Imma spread it alllll over these #pumpkinspice @thomasbreakfast English muffins…that are back too! 💁🏻🎃 So many pumpkin-y breakfast choices, I cannot begin to decide! Who else loves these English muffins or has tried this butter already?! 🙆🏻😛🎃👻 #nooksandcrannies #pumpkinspicecrannies
While this may be one of the non-weirder items to make the list, the fact that there’s PSL butter is really what’s taking the cake (er, pumpkin).
3. Sweet Treats
This is where PSL went wrong. Twinkies®, cinnamon rolls, candy — it’s just too much. If I want something sweet, I’ll just go for the original.
This is right up there with deodorant, though I could see this being really great for at the office. Bathrooms beware, we’ve got a new hand soap in town.
5. Cough Drops
Because I want to remind myself every time I cough that it’s fall.
I could have thrown this in with sweet treats, but breakfast deserved a category all its own. From wheaty goodness to Cheerios® and Pop-Tarts®, PSL has claimed many of our favorite cereals and breakfast treats. I’ve even seen Belvita® breakfast bars!
So excited to try my new snacks! I love finding Keto friendly foods in seasonal flavors, I was sad when I started to see all of the pumpkin spice stuff that I loved and not much of it I could have 😢 Then I found these @bluediamond pumpkin spice almonds! 🙌🏻 All@is well in my world again 😊🎃🍁🍂#pumpkinspiceeverything #keto #ketosnacks #ketofoods #ketosis #ketogenic #ketogenicliving #ketogenicdiet #lowcarb #lowcarbdiet #lowcarblifestyle #bluediamondalmonds #ketoweightloss #ketoweightlossjourney #healthyliving #amazon #amazonprime
I think I’d rather just eat toasted pumpkin seeds.
This has been a seasonal trend for a while and one I enjoy using all year round. PSL in spring? Sign me up.
Our editor here told me about this little gem. I saw it last year and have seen other folks online talking about it coming soon. One can only hope it makes it back for 2017.
The caption really explains it all.
