Fall is all around us: temperatures are slowly dipping in much of the U.S. and leaves are starting to change color. And, of course, everywhere you look there's pumpkin spice. It all started with the now ubiquitous lattes, but the world of pumpkin spice has grown to include everything from booze to seemingly half of the stock of any given Trader Joe's during the month of October.
Some of these products contain actual pumpkin, while others are flavored with the spices typically used in a pumpkin pie: nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and allspice. If you like this aromatic blend, then fall is a paradise for you. But what if you have pumpkin spice ennui?
