Pumpkin Spice Oreos Are Real, Hit Stores September 24th

We had plenty of unofficial evidence and off-the-record confirmation of the existence of pumpkin spice Oreos, but couldn’t be definitively, publicly sure that they were official and real.

Pumpkin Spice Gum Hits Shelves, Consumerist Editor’s Forehead Hits Desk

As Peak Pumpkin Spice approaches, eventually, food manufacturers will run out of items that they can inject real or artificial pumpkin flavoring and spices into.

I don’t like gum, but I would definitely buy that. Maybe some dental floss, while you’re at it? Mouthwash? [The Impulsive Buy]
