Hi little babies!

Okay, so if you’re like me, you’re a #PSL (aka a Pumpkin Spice Lifer).

If you’re like my boyfriend, you cringe anytime you hear the phrase pumpkin spice.

So I took it upon myself to do a little #PumpkinSpiceLifeChallenge!

I gently encouraged (aka begged & pleaded) #Boyfriend to try various pumpkin spice good I picked up from Trader Joe’s.

We used a scale of 1 to 5 pumpkins (1 being the worst, 5 being the best) to rate these pumpkin goodies.


1.) Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter

2.) Pumpkin Waffles

3.) Ace Pumpkin Hard Cider

4.) Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Herbal Blend

Disclaimer: We weren’t able to rate the oatmeal because I forgot you have to microwave oatmeal & I totally don’t own a microwave.

 We rated everything on a scale from 1 to 5 pumpkins (or pumps as we called them), 5 being the best, 1 being the worst.

1.) Pumpkin Pie Spiced Cookie Butter:


John: This is heckin’ good. Like, I just KNEW it was gonna be pure shit but it’s actually good? I like it cause it tastes like gingerbread & I LOVE gingerbread.

JB: It’s delicious, but it just tastes like the regular cookie butter. I don’t hate it but I wanted it to taste like a Pumpkin Spice Latte, & it doesn’t.

John: 4 1/2 pumps

JB: 4 pumps

2.) Pumpkin Waffles:



John: They’re good, they just don’t taste like pumpkin.


John: 1 pump

JB: 0 pumps

3.) Ace Pumpkin Hard Cider:


John: Better than I thought it was going to me, it tastes more spiced than pumpkin-y.

JB: Wowowowowowowow, I love this. Literally so amazing. Yes. Award-winning.

John: 3 out of 5 pumps

JB: 5 out of 5 pumps

4.) Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea:


JB: This smells like a candle Brittany got at Bath & Body Works.

John: I mean, it’s tea. I think it would make a good Chai tea drink, but it’s literally tea.

JB: I hate tea.

John: 3.75 pumps

JB: 1 pump

Best Pumpkin Treat:

John: Oh the cookie butter for sure. It’s about to go on all of my gingerbread cookies for peak gingerbread cookie-ness.

JB: Please deliver me a case of the hard cider. I want to drink it literally for the rest of my life.

Worst Pumpkin Treat:

John: Waffles, for the first time ever, something wasn’t pumpkin spice-y enough for me.

JB: I want to fight you waffles.

Overall, everything was much better to John than he expected & for me, I need more pumpkin spice. But to be fair, I literally always need more pumpkin spice.

What’s your favorite pumpkin spice flavored goodie?
