I keep hearing people talking about pumpkin stuff, seeing signs at Starbucks for pumpkin spice latte, and seeing ads from Bath and Body Works for their pumpkin scents. I've never been a pumpkin fan. I don't even like pumpkin pie! I also think that pumpkin anything in August is a little weird...

August is way too early. Don't like pumpkin lattes or scents. I sort of like pumpkin pie, but just the filling (don't like pie crust).

However, I do like the smell of a pumpkin pie baking, but not until November!

Yes, you are! (Just kidding!) But I am one of those people who can't wait for pumpkin anything. I love it! Pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread...I love it all!

I do fancy pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie, but those are October/November things for me!!!

This is WAY too early! Plus, around these parts the temperature is so hot it's like we are moving into summer instead of starting to leave it behind!


Everything is earlier and earlier....I don't get it! BUT I did just literally finishing buying fleece slippers for all my kids before I came to PT......if anyone needs them Lands End has gray fleece slippers in their kids sale section for $7.99 AND 30% off of that!

I'm with you. I might eat one slice of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving and drink one glass of egg nog at Christmas. Companies figure out that people will spend money on something and the next thing you know we have Christmas decorations in early November and pumpkin stuff in August.

Nope, not a fan of anything pumpkin, including pie! And definitely not in August!

Coffee tends to make me Nauseated as it is; Add in all of those horrible scents, and forget it! Ugh.

I do think pumpkins look nice as decoration in the fall!

I'm another one who dislikes pumpkin flavor and pumpkin scent. The one dessert I am able to easily skip is pumpkin pie .

I'm one of the crazies! I'm obsessed! Although, while I bought pumpkin scented stuff because it was on sale I've had enough self control to not put it out yet.

I love decorations because fall is my favorite season. And I do like pie. But not most of the other pumpkin related things. The idea of pumpkin flavored or scented coffee, ewwwww!

I like pumpkin desserts - bread, pie, cake. But I do not like pumpkin scents or flavoring (pumpkin M&M's? ). They're not really even pumpkin flavored; they're pie spice flavored.

(And after reading this whole thread, I now think "pumpkin" is a very funny-looking word. )

The only thing I like about pumpkins is their seeds.
Oh and maybe a picture or an actual pumpkin to put out during fall for decoration.
I hate pumpkin pie, I don't like pumpkin spice anything, and Pumpkin in anything: puke!

One time I decided to treat my dh with a dessert. He loves pumpkin pie. So I made little pumpkin pie bites (it also has cream cheese in it. I can't do cream cheese in any desserts. It grosses me out). They were like mini pumpkin pies. Now it's all he talks about in the fall. I taught him how to make them and then he can make them at any time! And he can have them all to himself.

You are not alone!

I enjoy the pumpkin flavors a few times at this time of year. Once or twice is enough for me. I have a multitude of other obsessions that take priority!

I hate pumpkin . Cannot eat any foods with pumpkin like pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, etc. Do not even like the smell of it. I think it's one of those things you either love or hate.

Pumpkin spice latte-too hot here but will look forward to their return. I didn't like pumpkin until about 10 years ago. Now we buy at least 4 or 5 pumpkin pies from Costco before the season is over.

Crazy4catz, it's not too hot for me! In fact, all this talk of pumpkin spice lattes has made me decide to go for a Target run and pick one up on the way back.

I love all pumpkin stuff! But the calendar has to say October 1. Even if it's still 100 degrees.

My favorite pumpkin thing is burning a Gold Canyon Pumpkin Pie candle. Yummy!
