The Fall season is in full swing now, as we approach November, and the collective love for the smell, sight, and taste of pumpkin is higher than ever. Most people naturally associate the autumn season with pumpkins, which is why pumpkin spice flavored food and drink abound this time of year. A universal obsession with pumpkin spice brings fall flavoring to some snacks that seem just a little…. weird. Here are a few of the strangest foods and drinks I came across:



  1. Pumpkin Spice Water

Even the most basic of drinks can be pumpkin-fied


2. Pumpkin Spice Chicken Sausage

Not exactly sure how pumpkin spiced meat would taste.


3. Pumpkin Spice Pasta Sauce

Why use tomatoes when you can use pumpkins?


4. Pumpkin Pop Rocks


What are the odds that this will be the most popular candy this Halloween?


5. Pumpkin Spice Salsa



I wonder if there are pumpkin spice chips to dip into this pumpkin spice salsa?


6. Pumpkin Seed Tortilla Chips

And there are, of course.


7. Pumpkin and Spice Potato Chips


In case tortilla chips weren’t cutting it for you.


8. Pumpkin Pie Spice Pringles

Pretty much all the chip bases are covered now.


9. Pumpkin Spice Hummus



Someone should invent some pumpkin spice pita to dip in this!


10. Pumpkin Spiced Salmon



This pumpkin spiced salmon is really just not okay.


11. Pumpkin Spice Jell-O


Not the worst thing in the world, but still a little weird.


12. Pumpkin Spice Vodka



Thanksgiving will be “lit” with this festive drink.


13. Pumpkin Spice Sparkling Cider


A non-alcoholic option for your pumpkin spice beverage.


14. Pumpkin Goat Cheese



While there’s no pumpkin dairy cheese, there is a pumpkin goat cheese option.


15. Pumpkin Spice Cough Drops



Pumpkin Cough Drops – designed specifically for an autumn cold.


16. Pumpkin Spice Gum


For fresh, pumpkin smelling breath.
