I literally have a shirt that says "Pumpkin Spice Everything", that I wear to get my first PSL of the year.

Pumpkin spice evokes great child memories for me and a reminder that fall is coming

I hate the taste and smell of pumpkin, and I'm sick to death of the oversaturation of it.

The Pumpkin Spice flavor should only be used as an air freshener.

It's 3 spices which can be added to other types of squash or sweet potato. Pumpkin has mild flavor & aroma w/o the spices.

No major reason. I just hate the taste of pumpkin. However, I am great with a pumpkin spice candle!

Belongs in pumpkin pie - all the rest is just marketing hype.

I learned my lesson the hard way. I no longer have ANY carry-over credit balances. Zero debt.

I got rid of all our credit cards years ago. The interest is ridiculous! You end up paying a lot more in interest than the the cost of the items purchased!

Why buy more than I can pay for? The federal government does that, which causes inflation.

I am a worry-wart and a negativr person, so half-empty would be the answer. But, what people don't see is that I am a pragmatist, or a realist. So, it's is also not half full or half empty, but right down the middle.
