This fall marks the 16th anniversary of the Pumpkin Spice Latte—at least the Starbucks version. Canada continues to get in on the PSL action: Tim Hortons has added a pumpkin spice version of the iced capp to its menu; The Body Shop recently launched a limited edition line of Pumpkin Vanilla products to its 2018 roster; and Halo Top Pumpkin Pie ice cream hit our shelves earlier this month. Question: do we really need more pumpkin spice-ification in our lives? Answer: heck yes. At least according to some people. If you are one of them, you’re in luck. And if you’re not…sorry.

If you want pumpkin spiced booze

Just walk into any liquor store or LCBO. Baileys and Kahlúa both have pumpkin spice versions, and Captain Morgan has brought back its Jack-O’ Blast pumpkin spiced rum in its pumpkin-shaped bottle. We don’t need to tell you that you can find pumpkin spice-flavoured vodkas. And whisky that hasn’t been pumpkin spiced is just…whisky.

If you want pumpkin spice for breakfast

Pop-Tarts has its holiday-themed Frosted Pumpkin Pie flavour, and Special K, Frosted Flakes, Quaker Instant Oatmeal, and Life cereals all come in seasonal pumpkin spice versions (but you may need to hit a Target in the U.S. to get them). Canadians happily have easier access to pumpkin spice Cheerios and Mini-Wheats, and multiple brands of limited edition pumpkin spice Greek yogurt.

If you love the smell of pumpkin spice

Mrs. Meyer’s has a new line of pumpkin cleaners, Bath & Body Works has almost 100 pumpkin-scented items, and if you use Amazon Prime, you can very quickly get your hands on pumpkin spice essential oils, lip balms, and hair care products. Oh, and pumpkin spice shampoo for your dog. While supplies last.
