Since Starbucks first launched its popular pumpkin spice latte in 2003, pumpkin spice has become as synonymous with the fall season as cozy sweaters, furry boots and Instagram posts of freshly fallen leaves (#Basic).
No longer just regulated to hot beverages and baked goods, the pumpkin spice craze has spread to include everything from hummus and cereal to air freshener and anti-bacterial hand wash. In honor of the season, we rounded up a few of the more unusual pumpkin spice offerings currently out on the market. Try them at your own risk.
Villa Italian Kitchen Pumpkin Spice Pizza
One of the oddest (and possibly grossest) pumpkin spice products to hit the market this season comes from food court pizza chain Villa Italian Kitchen. Sold by the slice, Villa’s Pumpkin Spice Pizza is made with regular pizza dough topped with pumpkin pie filling and mozzarella cheese, then topped again with additional pumpkin pie filling.
Never miss a local story.
Cost: $4.09 per slice, Villa Italian Kitchen.
