In honor of National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day, we thought we’d conduct a little informal research and find out what else you’re putting pumpkin in. Turns out you’re getting pretty creative: there’s way more than the standard pie or latte on this list.
- Breakfast smoothies
- “Protein balls” for the dieters
- Pancakes for everyone else
- Every single Trader Joe’s product
- Vegan parfait
- Macaroni and cheese
- Chicken curry
- Pot pie
- Tacos (the line dividing genius and madness is a thin one)
- Dessert tacos
Soon we will have achieved effortless pumpkin synchronicity; pumpkin will be in all things and all things will be pumpkin. Bake a pumpkin inside another pumpkin for a delicious, edible Russian doll. Smear pumpkin along your lips to tide you over during those rare moments you find yourself without a pumpkin-flavored treat. Refuse to live a life without the constant soothing presence of pumpkin. Demand pumpkins at all times, at all costs.
