Everyone knows them. These are the people obsessed with Pumpkin Spice Latte, or pumpkin spice flavored things in general.

It just doesn't end nowadays. They are throwing that pumpkin spice into everything from bagels to hummus. The equation for these companies seems to be food + pumpkin spice = profit.

What is in pumpkin spice? Here are the usual ingredients:

  • 2 parts ground nutmeg
  • 1 part ground cloves
  • 1 part ground ginger
  • 1 part ground allspice
  • 1 part ground cinnamon

Pumpkin spice is found everywhere in grocery stores, but you are not even safe in your own office. Co-workers with nothing better to talk about will mention how much they "love" pumpkin spice and don't understand all of the hate.

They are persistent and ruthless when it comes to their favorite flavor. Shoving it in your face and making sure you know that they have always been the biggest pumpkin spice fans. It is enough to make a guy wanna smash his keyboard into a million pieces.

The "Curse of the Pumpkin Spice Latte" is a perfect representation of this phenomenon, but the ending is exactly what most of the populations wants to do when it comes to pumpkin spice.

A word of advice: watch out for these pumpkin spice types! They are a weird bunch.
