However, there are a number of other flavors symbolic of fall, like apple, maple, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. Nibble on any treat bursting with these flavors — and sans pumpkins spice — and you'll be ready to throw on your favorite chunky knit sweater and watch Hocus Pocuson repeat. Don't forget to Instagram it, or it never happened.
