Pumpkin Spice Flavor-
I don’t hate pumpkin spice. I enjoy it in iced coffee. The thing is, that’s really it. I don’t need pumpkin pie, muffins, baked items, breakfast, none of it. The spice is usually way overdone. If I buy the creamer, I can kind of control it. I will drink pumpkin spice drinks for maybe two weeks out of the year and I’m out of there. I love aggressive seasoning but mixed with sweet can be a lot. Actually, I enjoy the smell a lot more. There are another fall/winter flavors that deserve much more attention. Specifically, gingerbread and salted caramel. Those are two flavors you can throw in almost anything and I’ll buy it. I do think that people should be able to enjoy pumpkin spice without it being a meme though
Look y’all. If it's not cream of crab or lobster bisque you can miss me with all of it. I just don’t care about soup at all. No chicken noodle, veggie, tomato I don’t want it at all. Call me uppity if you want to. Nothing compares to a quality cream of crab and lobster bisque. It's thick and creamy with good flavors. I don’t like tomato soup to the point I refuse to try a bloody mary. I enjoy vegetables too but I don’t want them just swimming around in the liquid. Stews are a bit better but I would cook those for others before I’ll eat them. I make a great chili apparently but I'm not crazy about it. There are some steak based ones that interest me though but overall, don’t send me soup recipes.
Apples need an image update-
Apples are all over the place in the fall. I love hard cider and regular cider. But that’s it. Apple flavored products are just code for cinnamon. It is rare that I have an apple dessert and I really taste the apple. Apple pie is boring. Easy to make and if I like you I’ll make you as many as you ask me to but I don’t want to eat it. Mushy apples are just so unappealing to me. I don’t want apple pie. I really don’t want applesauce. The texture is worse than oatmeal. I think it goes back to my disinterest in a soup. It's like lumpy gravy. Apples aren’t the worst though, it just needs better promotion. Maybe more focus on drinks because apple drinks are good. Where are the super rare ones or something?
