Over the past month I have cried out against the all-pervasive "Pumpkin Spice" and "Pumpkin Pie" trend inundating the world of candy delights (Click to read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4). I am pleased to say that I am not the only online outlet decrying the popularity of the difficult-to-(pleasantly)-recreate flavor. Jezebel blog has previously presented two articles outlining the problematic trend and asking the artificial pumpkin flavoring to please disappear pronto (click here and here to read). Now, the bastion of breaking news, The New York Times, has jumped on the bandwagon with a video uncovering what exactly makes up "Pumpkin Spice" flavoring (hint: not pumpkin nor nutmeg nor cinnamon nor clove nor any related spice):

Join the movement!! Down with artificial pumpkin spice!
