Pumpkin Flavored Whaaaaat?

As Halloween comes creeping up on us, let's take a look at some interesting and unusual products that have been infused with pumpkin this season!

Lip Balm- This one is earth friendly and not tested on animals. If you are interested in other brands that don't test on animals, PETA keeps a pretty comprehensive list at the Cruelty-Free section of their site.

Dog treats- With a name like "Nummy Tum Tum", how could you resist? This can be used on top of your dog's food as encouragement or as a treat by itself.

Coffee- Whether it's pumpkin, pumpkin spice, or pumpkin cinnamon, the selection of coffees and teas with an autumn flavor infusion is amazing!

Pumpkin Butter- I guess you could use this like peanut butter on bread or maybe on a biscuit or roll? The green color kind of threw me off...

Face Mask- Schmearing pumpkin all over my skin sounds refreshing- but pumpkin latte? Not sure.

Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath- I'm a little wary of multi-use products, but this could be an exception if I was dying to really SMELL like fall. 

Even some old favorites (not necessarily organic or green!) have introduced pumpkin-infused versions:

So here's to a flavorful fall!

The worms are still finishing off the garden castoffs and eagerly awaiting their own yearly jack-o-lantern treat. To puree or not to puree? Since the pics are so much cooler when they get them whole, that's an easy decision!
