There is no such thing as pumpkin spice. It is a blend of several other actual spices.

It's still nasty.

It's amazing how you can mix simple ingredients that everyone loves like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves, and end up with something that will make the entire internet hate you.

FFS, people.  Hating popular things and people who like them doesn't make you interesting and cool.  It just makes you a douche.

You know what I like several small glasses of around Xmas? Eggnog. It's rich, decadent, and fits the holiday theme--especially if it's cold out.

You know what product I'd hate to be inundated by heavily marketed derivatives of around Xmas? farking eggnog.

I mean, it already happens a little. But if I had to wade through obnoxious ads for eggnog coffee, cookies, muffins, ice cream, toothpaste, car air freshener, etc., every time I left the house, I'd get pretty goddamned sick of eggnog as a concept.

It seems like your real problem should be with advertisers, then.

Ads farking suck.

That's kinda my point.

I'm pretty confident most of the people complaining about pumpkin spice everything are pissed off by the sheer inescapable presence of it, rather than the spice combination itself.

Correct. These are not well people. This is addiction. There's pumpkin-spice ramen, pumpkin-spice ravioli, pumpkin-spice deodorant, pumpkin-spice breadsticks from pizza places, Bud Light Seltzer Fall Flannel Limited Edition Variety Pack Pumpkin-spice flavor, pumpkin-spice tamales, and pumpkin-spice enzyme face peel.

They can't even stay in their own season, they leak out into the middle of the summer. It started after the 4th of July this year. We were still supposed to be blowing up small parts of the country to show everyone how much we love it!

I uh...don't think I follow.

Would they be happier with douchy ads? No! I think we established that.

Would they be happier with actual ads for douche? /shrug They don't bother me, and are certainly less prevalent than pumpkin spice everything this time of year.

Would they be happier if there were ads for pumpkin spice douche? Beats me. I posted a pic of that particular fake product in one of the other 29348724 pumpkin spice complaint threads we've had since July, and lived to tell the tale.

Yeah no shiat. If I raw dog a pumpkin, it isn't going to taste like much at all.  But pumpkin spice ________ is delicious.  The trend of dunking on pumpkin spice product loving people has run its course.  The items clearly sell well, lemme have my pumpkin beer and fark off to the haters.

My point is, the real problem is the ads themselves.  No matter what they're for.

So stop shiatting on people enjoying delicious flavors and put your ire where it belongs - marketers.

Un-pumpkin spice. I think I'd like this less. Thanks Alton

Since that's now the second time in this exchange you've taken on a directly accusatory tone, I'd like to point out that I'm not actually in the group shiatting on people for liking pumpkin spice. I meticulously avoid taking sides in these threads, other than to poke fun at the overall commercialism of the phenomenon and to post fake pics of products that should not be.

Well, that and to reiterate the culinary significance of the spices involved outside the realm of "holiday treats".

Just wait until Thanksgiving. You'll be able to buy it in pie form, made with pumpkin spices.
