Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte boasts a sprinkling of secret spice on top. Now has uncovered the truth about this secret ingredient. It’s ordinary Pumpkin Pie Spice which is cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.
We still dig this latte, but the secret is out! Check out my critique of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte and in the meantime don’t forget to [...]

Mitchell’s Pumpkin Ice Cream Gets Around!

I Love Pumpkins | November 13, 2008

You don’t have to go to Bernal Heights to try Mitchell’s Pumpkin Ice Cream. These guys get around town! They distribute their ice cream throughout San Francisco, and on an evening stroll down Union Street, Master P. and I discovered their Pumpkin Ice Cream at my favorite frozen yogurt place.
Mitchell’s Pumpkin Ice Cream is a revelation. [...]

Bi-Rite’s Pumpkin Ice Cream Cake

I Love Pumpkins | November 12, 2008

Saturday night, an ice cream cake materialized out of Alex M.’s freezer at his birthday party. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, it was Bi-Rite’s Pumpkin Ice Cream Cake!
We found white chocolate tiles and cinnamon on top, and a thin layer of dark molasses cake at the foundation. In between there was nothing a big fat satisfying expanse [...]

Hit Me Over the Head with Gingerbread!

I Love Pumpkins | November 10, 2008

Have you ever been hit over the head with a loaf of Pumpkin Gingerbread? Try Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale! It smells like a fruity ale, but that’s how it sneaks up on you quietly. BAM! One mouthful and you’re drowning in a spice EXPLOSION! Imagine drinking a gingerbread pumpkin loaf cake.
The smell is fruity and slightly sour, almost [...]

Moonstruck Chocolate Co.’s Pumpkin Pie Truffle

I Love Pumpkins | November 9, 2008

Hello, little truffle!

Soft, sweet and buttery with a caramel finish. It’s deliciously airy in texture. This cute little truffle wears a white chocolate hat and smells distinctly of white chocolate. Compared to Godiva’s Pumpkin Spice Truffle, this one is much more subtle and more ethereal. Moonstruck Chocolate Co.’s Pumpkin Pie Truffle would go great with a cup of [...]

Pumpkins at Bath & Body Works

I Love Pumpkins | November 8, 2008

Bath and Body Works has a Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin line of products for your skin. It smells perfumey with a hint of sharp spice. I’m surprised that it’s not very pumpkinny, but hell, does anyone really want to smell like pumpkin pie? This line of products may be more “in spirit” than “in practice” and [...]

Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt at a Pizza Place?

I Love Pumpkins | November 6, 2008

Blondie’s Pizza is in the block of San Francisco where Union Square tourists board the cable car.
In the year-and-a-half that I’ve lived here, I’ve tried neither Blondie’s Pizza nor the cable car… but I HAVE just tried Blondie’s Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt and it’s DELICIOUS.
Indubitably. Completely. Fucking. Delicious.
Try it!

Dreyer’s Pumpkin Ice Cream

I Love Pumpkins | November 5, 2008

This ice cream starts out very mildly. Your tastebuds seek out pumpkin flavor, but initially all you taste is sugary, milky sweetness. The texture is also slightly gummy at first in this Pumpkin Ice Cream by Dreyer’s.
But be patient! If you let it melt slowly in your mouth, sure enough… this ice cream starts to taste like real pumpkin pie filling! It becomes quite [...]

Old Fashioned Pumpkin Butter by Koslowski Farms

Master P | November 2, 2008

Pumpkin butter… What is pumpkin butter anyway? If you read the back of the container, it suggests that pumpkin butter can be served on toast or bagles with cream cheese. Not only that, go ahead an use it in smoothies, and yogurt, or why not a dipping sauce enhancer? I’ve only tried it straight by [...]
