Is It Too Early For Pumpkin Spiced Products To Be Out?
I was walking down the grocery aisle over the weekend, and I couldn't believe what I saw.
"It can't be," I thought. "It's still August!" But believe it or not, it's really here: PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING!August is not even over with and stores are putting out pumpkin spice products. While grocery shopping, I saw pumpkin spiced cereal, coffee creamer, and even cookies (yuck).
Don't get me wrong. I do enjoy a nice hot pumpkin latte, but only in the the FALL! I mean, you can say this about anything really. There are Halloween decorations out already and one store even has Christmas decor out. I like to get a jump start on decorating...but not this early.
So when is early too early? A month out? A few weeks? And it does seem that stores put out fall/Halloween/Christmas decor out earlier each year. I guess it doesn't matter as long as customers are buying into it. I bought my girls their Halloween costumes already. My six-year-old said we need to be proactive and get them early (she's so smart).
I want to know what you think. Is it too early for pumpkin spiced products?
