Love it or leave it, it’s that time of year where everything except your tampons (just wait…it’ll happen eventually) turns to pumpkin spice. Flavored, scented or whatever, it’s the fall trend so popular it actually starts at the end of the summer, God help us. Of course, the main thing is those lattes us moms can’t seem to get enough of but it’s also candles, Oreos, soaps, cream cheese, beer, lotion — the list of pumpkin-tainted items is seemingly endless. Fall is now synonymous with pumpkin spice. We literally can’t escape it.
If you’re a pumpkin spice hater, gather round. If you love the stuff, there’s something here for you too, because the funny parents of Twitter are all over the pumpkin spice phenomenon with hilarious tweets about this new fall mainstay.
1. Sweet freedom.
Most people love fall for sweaters, pumpkin spice, & cool breezes… I’m just happy I can now yell at my kids without the windows open.

Pumpkin spice is great and all but who needs it when we can finally yell without worrying the neighbors are judging us? Bring on the chill.
2. Its versatility knows no bounds.
Pumpkin spice kabobs, pumpkin spice stew, pumpkin spice creole, pumpkin spice and potatoes…

Just dump it into anything. While you’re at it, sprinkle it on the kids. A huge scent improvement from dirty feet and poop.
3. And pumpkin spice on that bowl full of mush.
Goodnight selfies, LOL twice
Goodnight lady selling pumpkin spice
Goodnight Uggs and ombré hair
Goodnight white girls everywhere

Pumpkin spice story time because, why not? It’s invading everything else in our lives.
“Have you tried cutting down to three pumpkin spice lattes per day?”

All that caffeine and sugar can have unintended consequences. Like keeping you up all night thinking about when you’ll have another pumpkin spice latte. Or just getting up every hour to pee.
5. It’s not just us.
I know fall is getting close because the squirrels are wearing Uggs and demanding pumpkin spice lattes.

Pumpkin spice has inter-species appeal. Now all they need is teeny infinity scarves.
6. There’s rules, you know.
You can’t just light a pumpkin spice candle in August you psycho.
— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) August 16, 2016
Everyone around you will want to throw pumpkin spice in your eye if you make them breathe in fall while they’re still in flip flops. Calm down. The time will come.
7. An exception.
Are we at a place where we can stop talking about politics and start talking about pumpkin spice?
— majesticminge (@majesticminge) August 30, 2016
If it means no more election talk, fine. We can talk pumpkin spice before grilling season is over. Better than talking about Trumpkin. See what I did there? I’m here every Thursday!
8. Who needs fall?
It goes winter, spring, summer, pumpkin spice.

We have a bunch of preschool songs about the seasons that need their lyrics updated.
Pumpkin Spice is the Spice Girl crying into her festive Venti latte while wearing yoga pants and telling her kids to “Go play.”
— Walking Outside (@WalkingOutside) September 7, 2016
They cut her before the first tour. Shame. She was so relatable.
10. What a way to go.
Ugh don’t even talk to me until I’ve had 27 pumpkin spice lattes and my heart explodes and you’re at my wake saying your final goodbye to me
— Lurk @ Home Mom (@LurkAtHomeMom) September 30, 2014
Sprinkle pumpkin spice on my casket.
11. It’s the first step toward recovery.
I’ve been in therapy for 6 months and I’m finally able to admit this to you,
I hate pumpkin spice everything.
There. I said it.

To some of us, those PSLs taste like hot, sweet vomit. I may or may not be one of them. Trying to remain neutral here in the war on pumpkin spice.
I don’t care that it’s September if you talk to me about pumpkin spice before the forecast has temps under 80° I will kick you in the throat
— Cray at Home Ma (@cray_at_home_ma) September 1, 2016
You’ve been warned. Happy Fall!
