Love it or hate it, it’s everywhere. It started with pie. Then moved to coffee. And candles. Now we have pumpkin spiced cough drops, air fresheners, and Doritos. For many (like myself), the signs and smells of pumpkin mean the days of dripping boob-sweat at my kids’ baseball games are over and I can dig out the giant comfy sweaters that hide my food baby after a double cheeseburger. So I embrace it. But I’ll agree that ad for pumpkin spiced tampons means that yeah, we’ve collectively lost our shit.
Maybe you’re fighting the good fight against PSL (or PS in general) because it’s still 93 degrees where you live, or because you think pumpkin tastes like ass. Or maybe you love it and have a PSL punch card and already got a freebie. Either way, pumpkin spice has become as American as
mentally unstable presidents having tantrums on social media apple pie and baseball. So here are 15 hilarious tweets about it.
I ordered a regular coffee and they saw I was a white girl and were like “LOL she must be confused” and gave me a pumpkin spiced latte.

Pumpkin Spice is the Spice Girl crying into her festive Venti latte while wearing yoga pants and telling her kids to “Go play.”

The beginning of fall always makes me feel cozy and warm, optimistic for new beginnings, and thankful for all the beauty I have in my life.

Well the bright spot is that even as the leadership of our country folds in on itself into a pit of craven incompetence and lies, it IS after all pumpkin spice latte season. And if you don’t like that, well, shit is dark for you indeed.

So there you have it. The season of pumpkin is upon us, and I’ll probably indulge in my first PSL this week. I mean, I’ve already got my boots on and the crockpot out, so it’s time. But let’s know where the line is, mkay? If you put pumpkin spice in your chili, we probably can’t be friends.
