Surprise Fall Flavors Are Here Is It Too Early?
I was walking down the grocery aisle over the weekend, and I couldn't believe what I saw.
"It can't be," I thought. "It's still August!" But believe it or not, it's really here: PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING!
August is not even over with and stores are putting out pumpkin spice products. While grocery shopping, I saw pumpkin spiced cereal, coffee creamer, and even cookies (yuck).
Don't get me wrong. I do enjoy a nice hot pumpkin latte, but only in the FALL! I mean, you can say this about anything really. There are Halloween decorations out already and one store even has Christmas décor out. I like to get a jump start on decorating. You all know how much I love to decorate for Christmas, but I am starting to really get into the fall decorating. I can go crazy finding new items each year to put in my house or on my porch. I even had corn stalks attached to my porch last fall, it was super cute. I might even get my white Christmas tree out and decorate it for fall and then Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course Christmas (which I have added so many ornaments within the year I might need a new tree).
So when is early too early? A month out? A few weeks? And it does seem that stores put out fall/Halloween/Christmas décor out earlier each year, which I totally am on board for. I guess it doesn't matter as long as customers are buying into it.
