Lunchtime Poll: Favorite Fall Flavors

Here in the northeastern U.S., autumn is suddenly upon us. How do I know? Because every single food known to humankind is now available in “pumpkin spice” flavor.

Now, I’m probably going to get kicked out of New England for saying so, but I hate pumpkin-flavored stuff. Mostly because it’s the “spice” part of “pumpkin spice” that gives stuff its taste (as I find pumpkin itself to taste something like a bland zucchini). I do, however, love all things apple, especially when my beloved Honeycrisps start showing up in the grocery store.

How about you? What’s your favorite taste of fall?

Pumpkin flavored everything. Apple everything! PECAN PIE ALL OVER THE PLACE! I freaking love fall.

I do love Starbucks salted caramel mocha as well. I know salted caramel is not exclusively a fall thing, but it’s definitely a little more prevalent.

Also, the fall means that sponge candy comes back in full force. It is a pretty popular type of candy around these parts, a spun sugar center dipped in chocolate. In the summer it’s too humid for the sponge part to set right, so it’s much harder to find and the stuff you do come across is not as good.

I do love the pumpkin stuff but within reason. Give me pumpkin bars and pumpkin muffins, but keep the pumpkin lattes and pies. The apples, though, that’s what I’m all about. From now til winter my lunches will be mostly apples in all their wonderful variety. :)

I like pecan pie oh so very much! It’s especially good when baked with a dash of dark rum. :) Other than that, I don’t have a specific flavor that is fall-related that I love, but I do like that with cooler weather, I can make soups and stews without feeling overheated in my kitchen. Give me soups, stews, and chowders until the cows come home!

I love pumpkin, this is my favorite time of year to eat things. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin pie, I will eat my share and your share of pumpkin flavored crap. I don’t eat the weird stuff (pumpkin and chocolate? Blasphemy.)

I’m also pretty crazy about pecan pie, even though it’s essentially sugar in a crust.

I am ALL about the spice, but keep thinking I should try to like pumpkin & should eat more of it since it’s healthy and so on. I do like the seeds at least. I have been trying to find the only-at-Target Candy Corn Oreos to no avail, even though they will probably be horrible. And while I really don’t care much for apples, the new Pepperidge Farm Caramel Apple cookies are reaaalllly good. Have the Pumpkin Cheesecake ones to try next as well!
