12 Pumpkin Spice Products We’re Ready to Try in 2022

Fall has officially arrived and we are ready to celebrate. The fall equinox has arrived – September 22, 2022 – and that means it’s time to indulge in some of the pumpkin spice products we’ve seen on the shelves of grocery stores, drugstores, and more.

If you’ve bucked the pumpkin spice trend so far, we definitely get it. If your only weakness has been a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks or Dunkin, well, we understand that too.

A recent shopping trip to Alabama, however, revealed so many damn things made with pumpkin spice. Ice cream. Bath bombs. Muffin mix. Body Butter. Coated espresso beans. Vape cartridges and more.

Abstaining from that sort of thing made us feel like the pre-Halloween version of the Grinch, if there is such a thing. So it’s pumpkin spice.

Here are 12 food items on our ‘must try’ list, all available from everyday shops in the Birmingham metropolitan area. Some of these elements strike us as a little odd or offbeat, but that won’t stop us from tasting them. (Yay, fall!) And, although specific stores are mentioned for each item, most of them are available in several other places.
