The calendar — and the weather report — may say that it's still summer, but we are well into August and snack fans know what season it really is. That's right: it's pumpkin spice season. What was once just a fall seasonal flavor here for chilly days, invoking all things autumn and cozy, the wildly popular flavor is a full on cultural and culinary icon which means that when late summer rolls around, we're all in for the comforting flavors of pumpkin and nutmeg to not only give us a little bit of a sweet treat, but get us thinking about cooler days ahead.
So far, we don't yet know exactly when the ultimate harbinger of Pumpkin Spice Season is set to return — by that we mean the Starbucks PSL — but there's still plenty of pumpkin spice delights for fans to enjoy. From coffee to crackers to ice cream and beyond, there's already a wealth of pumpkin spice goodness on store shelves and more headed that way in the coming days and weeks. Now, to help celebrate the best season of the year, we've rounded up 10 pumpkin spice products to help kick off fall. Pumpkin spice all the things!
