The Definitive Ranking of Pumpkin Spice Products

Ah, fall—sweaters, bonfires, football and…pumpkin spice. Ever since the success of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte, companies have taken advantage of the ridiculous addiction to this drink and pumped out tons of products with the ~PSL~ theme. What started out as a delicious fall beverage has turned into a pumpkin spice-fest with a lot of pretty irrelevant products. To prep you for the bombardment of said products this fall, we’ve made a definitive ranking of pumpkin spice items that you should either avoid at all costs or indulge in—your choice.

21. Pumpkin Spice Fettuccini

Okay, this could actually be good. 

20. Pumpkin Spice Four Loko

Considering the original Four Loko was never a good idea, adding some pumpkin spice to it only makes it worse.

19. Pumpkin Spice Cat & Dog Shampoo

As if you couldn’t get enough of the scent, now you can have your pets join in on the PSL fun!

18. Pumpkin Spice Nail Polish


17. Pumpkin Spice Pringles

This just sounds like a really sad and uncomfortable time.

16. Pumpkin Spice Jell-O

For some reason, pumpkin spice just isn’t the best thing to put in gelatin form. No one wants to “jiggle” with pumpkin spice.

15. Pumpkin Spice Vodka

Maybe you can make some festive Jell-O shots?

14. Pumpkin Spice Air Freshener

This scent is way too strong to spray all over your house. But hey, if you love it, you do you. We just think we’d suffocate.

13. Pumpkin Spice Bagels

They have the potential, but these could go wrong very, very quickly.

12. Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese

Pair this with your PS bagel for a fall festival in your tummy!

11. Pumpkin Spice Peeps

Easter is coming to you early with these festive little marshmallow chicks.

10. Pumpkin Spice Gum

You could get rid of your PSL coffee breath with some…PSL flavored gum?

9. Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk

At least they’ve considered the lactose-intolerant and vegans in this mayhem.

8. Pumpkin Spice Creamer

Use it to make your own much, much cheaper version of a PSL at home!

7. Pumpkin Spice Body Wash

It may have an ultra-strong scent, but pre-teens everywhere love this stuff.

6. Pumpkin Spice Chobani Yogurt

It sounds strange, but it’s actually surprisingly tasty.

5. Pumpkin Spice Chocolate

Holla at Ghirardelli for hooking us up with some killer chocolate filled with pumpkin spice goodness.

4. Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter

Any kind of cookie butter is amazing, and a pumpkin spice flavor has got to be fantastic.

3.  Pumpkin Spice Oreos

One of the better limited edition Oreos, we have to admit.

2. Pumpkin Spice M&Ms

Sign us up. Please. Yum.

1. Pumpkin Spice Latte

The OG, the one that started it all. You can never stray from the classic, and that’s why it will always be number one.

Try out some of our favorite pumpkin spice products (and maybe even our least favorite ones?) and let us know how you would rank them. Happy fall, collegiettes!
