It’s here…PUMPKIN SEASON! Although some may be sick of the wildly popular Pumpkin Spice Latte (…or are they?), we can’t deny the amount of pumpkin products available in present day is mind-blowing. Any type of food or beverage you crave, it is likely available in pumpkin.

I did some research to gather some of the best pumpkin finds across the U.S. And yes, pumpkin bagels are a thing.
