Pumpkin Spice Season

The first day of fall is September 22nd, but when it comes to pumpkin spice season, it is already here!

When someone says pumpkin spice, my first thought is a pumpkin spice latte.

This coffee drink is usually made with a mix of traditional fall spice flavors (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove, and sometimes allspice), steamed milk, espresso, and often sugar, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice. Since 2015, it has also contained a small amount of pumpkin puree.

There are no boundaries for the use of the combination of ground spices that we call pumpkin pie spice.

Nostalgia is the reason for the season which creates the infusion of pumpkin spice flavor into all kinds of treats, according to livescience.com.

Many families eat pumpkin pie and other similarly spiced treats in the fall. So, it’s understandable that we’ve come to associate these smells with the fall holidays. And that smell association then taps into our sense of nostalgia… the sweet smell of pumpkin spice might remind us of times we helped grandma bake pumpkin pie during Thanksgiving.

More than 95 percent of the spice blend’s sales occurring between August and November, according to McCormick, the company that originated Pumpkin Pie Spice in 1934 as a shortcut for flavoring the traditional harvest dessert.

When you have to have your homemade pumpkin spice latte, here is an easy recipe.
