It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, I'm not talking about Christmas — it’s pumpkin spice season, which to many, is just as important. We all know about the pumpkin spice frenzy that takes over fall and much of winter the second September rolls around, and this year, there are all sorts of foods hopping on the trend. Pumpkin spice ketchup? Pringles? There is a whole host of pumpkin spice-flavored foods you can get your hands on this season — even ones you wouldn't quite expect.
It is interesting to note that some of our favorite foods and drinks are getting into the pumpkin spice spirit. What brand wouldn’t want to jump in on the PSL bandwagon? Pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, clove, ginger, and nutmeg are comforting, nostalgic, and straight-up delicious in traditional holiday foods and drinks. It only makes sense that we would want them sprinkled into our daily eats as well.
But what about the more obscure items that you would never dream of being pumpkin spice-flavored?

A little pumpkin spice hummus to go inside your falafel or pita sandwich? Sure, why not? Last fall, Cedar's Foods released its seasonal edition pumpkin spice hummus made with chickpeas, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sounds like a pretty good time, if you ask me.
