Pumpkin Spice is Overrated! There, I Said It.

Hello beautiful ladies!

‘Tis the season, I guess. Fall is among us, and everyone’s favorite Fall flavor is making it’s cute lil comeback. Yes, I’m talking about Pumpkin Spice. I have yet to get into the Fall flavor craze because what do I look like consuming anything with the word ‘pumpkin’ it in? I’m convinced y’all like to romanticize the pumpkin itself.

Have y’all ever smelled the inside of a pumpkin? It’s horrid. Smells like my stomach acids. I understand that there’s not a lick of pumpkin in pumpkin spice, but it’s just a no for me, y’all. I think not.

Now, if you want to get into something heavenly, get into eggnog. Yes, y’all could definitely argue against it and say, “Well, it contains eggs! An egg drink? That sounds disgusting.”. I get it, but it doesn’t contain the yolk. The yolk is the worst part. YET AND STILL PUMPKIN SPICE IS NAWT IT, AND I WON’T BE GETTING INTO IT.

Until eggnog is available, I’ll be waiting. I won’t be trying a single Fall drink.

With love + underrated fall drinks
