What pumpkin spice item should you try this holiday season?
Fall is nearly upon us, which means that pumpkin spice everything is finally here! Now is the perfect time of the year to indulge in any and all things pumpkin scented, flavored or themed, and what better way is there to chose from the vast options available than by choosing according to your zodiac sign?!
While a deep love of pumpkin spice has existed for thousands of years, it’s a fun treat when you find a new food or drink aside from your typical Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts pumpkin spice latter to try in the current year’s season. The flavor, smell, and color of pumpkins strike a nostalgic chord many of us associate with the warm fuzzy feelings associated with autumn, Halloween, the changing colors of leaves, and bundling up with those we love during as we enter the colder months — so no one should really be able to blame you if you just can’t seem to get enough.
If you are a lover of astrology, you’re also aware that all zodiac signs have special characteristics and traits that make them unique. For this reason, people born under each sun sign may gravitate toward a certain type of pumpkin spice flavored food or drink more than they do toward others.
To that end, here is the best pumpkin spice flavored food or drink for you in 2020, according to your zodiac sign.
