Other // Pumpkin Spice Favourites

Autumn has arrived! Good-bye sunny days, t-shirts, sunburn and glorious golden tans. Hello cold and frosty mornings, layers of knitwear, earache and ghostly pale skin. As much as I like summer, I do love Autumn. I love jumping on fresh, crunchy leaves, stamping conkers out of their shells and waking up each morning to clear blue skies with frost on the ground. But what do I like better than all of those things? The scent of the season, of course. Pumpkin spice.

Ask me a few months ago what pumpkin spice was and I would have told you you could probably find it in between nutmeg and cinnamon in a supermarket. I had no idea. That was until a few weeks ago when I tried my first ever pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. It tasted sweet with absolutely no hint of vegetable at all. Pumpkin spice is a mixture between cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Think gingerbread without the ginger. It is warming, comforting and oooh, just lovely.

Since then, I feel like my eyes have been opened to the pumpkin spice world and now I can't get enough. If you can get it in pumpkin spice then I sure as hell want it. My mum recently came home from the US and bought me some wonderful pumpkin spice scented products for me to try. Candles, hand sanatizer, sweets..

Bath and Body Works plays a massive part in my pumpkin spice obsession. They have a wonderful range of Autumnal scents available in various pumpkin scented varieties. We're talking Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Honeyed Pinapple Pumpkin, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow... Dreamy. I wasn't too sure as to what those various variations would smell like in candle form but my goodness, I didn't expect them to smell like that. I have Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Caramel Pumpkin Swirl and Pumpkin Pecan Waffles and they each smell truly wonderful. My favourite is Sweet Cinnmon Pumpkin. It is like, spicy and smells amazing! In hand sanatizer form I have Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Purrfect Potion and Marshamallow Pumpkin Latte. Whilst the latter is incredibly sweet, the first two are light, spicy and are the epitome of Autumn.

Also when my mum was in America, she bought me back some Gold Emblem Pumpkin Spice Candy Corns. I had no idea as to what a candy corn was, albeit a pumpkin spice one so I was rather intrigued when she thrust the packet at me. Candy corns are kind of like foam bananas/shrimps in texture but a little bit harder. The pumpkin spice is very apparent but in an artificial way. They are truly bizarre and definitely a required taste but my taste buds quite enjoy them!
