Pumpkin Spice Addiction Is Real: WWL radio claims pumpkin spice addiction is real. LSU psychologist Dr. Michelle Moore tells the station; “(Pumpkin spice) Usually reminds you of something happy, or pleasurable. So for some people, pumpkin spice is associated with fall, and makes other associations to happy memories. The addiction or obsession is also just from social media, and people seeing that so many others are excited about it, that they want to be a part of that. Because they know that something that that everyone is paying attention to, it’s on people’s minds. And people will buy most anything just because it says pumpkin spice.”
It must be addictive because here are a few of the products we’ve seen:
Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s. Pumpkin Spice Oreos. Pumpkin spice sausage. Pumpkin spice Pringles. Pumpkin spice hamburgers. There are pumpkin spice liqueurs. I have seen evidence of pumpkin spice-encrusted salmon. There’s pumpkin spice chewing gum. Pumpkin spice is even making its way into cat litter. Men can get pumpkin spice beard oils. Pumpkin spice dog treats. Pumpkin spice e-cigarettes.
