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:
JB: THIS IS BULLSHIT CAUSE IT TASTE LIKE A PLAIN ASS EGGO.
John: They’re good, they just don’t taste like pumpkin.
JB: THROW THEM AWAY.
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?
