It’s a seasonal trend unlike any other. It descends upon the nation like a storm: rapid and unforgiving. It’s in the air, across store shelves, forced into our food, reflected in clothing and ever present in our coffee mugs.
That’s right, kids – it’s pumpkin season.
With Labor Day officially in our rear view mirror, fall is here and once again, it’s time for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING. Nutri-Grain Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Bars, Special-K Pumpkin Spice Crunch, pumpkin-filled Pop-Tarts, Pumpkin Spice marshmallows, Pumpkin Oreos, Pumpkin Spice Eggos, Pumpkin Spice Peeps and let’s not forget the grand poobah: Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Even the firearms industry can’t escape this all-consuming seasonal trend.
