Fall is the time of year when everyone goes nuts for pumpkin, and they put it in EVERYTHING. Pumpkin coffee creamer, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin yogurt--the list goes on and on. Let's not forget the ubiquitous pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. <shudder>
Now, I know what you're thinking. If you hate pumpkin so much, don't eat those things. Trust me, I don't. But I can't get away from the SMELL. And every once in a while, someone slips pumpkin past my radar, and I'm left with a mouthful of grossness. If this is a social setting, I'm forced to pretend that yes, your homemade spice bread _is_ delicious. Did you add pumpkin? Lovely. Meanwhile, my taste buds are rebelling, threatening to shut down out of a desperate sense of self-preservation while I paste a smile on my face that I'm sure is all sorts of awkward. It's exhausting, I tell you.
So here's my question to you: are you one of those people who likes pumpkin-flavored stuff, or do you prefer to stay away from pumpkins? What's the strangest pumpkin-flavored thing you've ever seen?
