The 10 most 'Huh?' pumpkin spice foods you can buy this year


It's almost fall pumpkin spice season.

Although some brands are including old fall favorites (remember the apple?) this year, many are sticking with the seemingly unwavering favorite.

But pumpkin spice isn't just for pie, coffee and beer anymore – it's expanded to candy, cereal, marshmallows, almonds and even dish soap and dog shampoo.

(For those who just can't jump on the pumpkin spice bandwagon, People Magazine put together a list of alternative fall-flavored items to enjoy, including pecan pie flavored vodka, candy corn cupcakes and salted caramel ice cream bars.)

Here are some of the craziest pumpkin-spiced things on the market:


Delish says we may have hit the pumpkin spice peak now that it's available in hummus – the fall-themed treat was expected to hit store shelves Sept. 1.


Pinnacle now has a pumpkin vodka, which it recommends using in a creamy vodka martini or taking it as a shot.


It's the same golden cake Twinkies are known for – only with a pumpkin spice-flavored creme filling.


Peeps, which continues to expand past the Easter season, is now offering a pumpkin flavored treat.

Pasta sauce

Pasta sauce is among Giant Food's 50 pumpkin-flavored products this year, including waffles and syrup.

Peanut butter

Delish says it tastes like slathering toast in peanut butter and pumpkin pie filling.


Pumpkin spice-flavored M&M's aren't new – they hit the market a few years ago – but now the candy is going after the pumpkin spice latte lovers with its latte-inspired treat, which is only available in Target stores, Delish notes.


Kellogg's says it's bringing "everyone's favorite fall flavor to the breakfast table" with its limited-edition pumpkin spice Frosted Mini-Wheats, which has cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger. Kellogg's also launched pumpkin spice Fudge Stripe cookies for fall.


Auntie Anne's announced Tuesday its new pumpkin-themed products, including pumpkin pretzel nuggets and pumpkin smoothies. They will be available until Oct. 31.


Delish says it tastes like pumpkin pie filling – but not as heavy.
