Sadly, October is almost at an end. However, with the end of October comes the best month ever, I could be biased, November! So what did October consist of you may ask? Pumpkin Spice Everything, and if you’re like me, you tried a lot of it.
First, Whitey’s Pumpkin ice cream. So stinking good. 150 calories a serving so not terrible. Tastes like creamy pumpkin goodness.
Next up Philadelphia Cream Cheese Pumpkin flavored. Another GREAT one. Only 80 calories a serving and tastes great on toast or a bagel.
International Delight Pumpkin spice creamer. This one has 30 calories a serving which is actually lower than the normal 35-45 calories a serving for other flavor.s I enjoyed this flavor especially because it wasn’t over-the-top pumpkin spice.
Sunbelt Bakery Pumpkin spice granola bars. These were OK. Would I eat them again, sure if I needed a quick snack. Not my first choice though. The flavor was good, just felt a little bland. 110 calories per bar, so not terrible there.
Pumpkin Spice Pop Tart. SO GOOD, but only if you heat them in the toaster! On their own, not a fan, but get them warm and gooey and they are amazing. 200 calories a serving, and lots of sugar, but none the less the calories are worth it, yum!
Pumpkin Spice doughnuts. I didn’t try these, but my daughter did. She actually enjoyed them warmed up with a glass of milk. Maybe next year.
Now to a few things I passed on.
Halo top. Have to say I have not tried it as of yet. 360 calories for a whole pint. Sitting down and eating a while pint of ice cream was something I used to do regularly, but now that I have a shred of self control, the thought of eating that whole pint scares me away. Also, the price. Not for me.
Next up, these weird pumpkin spice ice cream bars. I almost grabbed them, but the coloring on the package made me think of a block of cheese. Pass.
Pumpkin spice yogurt. I’ve never been a fan of Yoplait Yogurt so this was an easy pass for me. Maybe next year, but probably not.
Pumpkin spice chocolate, yes please. Sadly I didn’t get to try these……yet.
If you’re in the DIY mood I found this pin to make my own pumpkin spice. Looks promising. Could add this to cream cheese spread, protein shakes, plain yogurt, or cake frosting.
And for all those that enjoy a good shake, here is a quick Pumpkin Pie Protein shake recipe. I definitely want to try this one very soon.
What pumpkin spice things did you try?
Oooooh, look they spelled my name right. 🙂
