Well, hello National Pumpkin Day! A few pumpkin favorites…

I had no idea that today is National Pumpkin Day. Yesterday, while shopping at Barnes & Noble (or as Maxim calls it…Barnes & Nobo), I received this coupon, making me aware of this great day…


WELL. Since it’s National Pumpkin Day, I felt it was necessary to highlight some of my favorite pumpkin things. Weekend Recap will be here tomorrow. Today, it’s all about pumpkin stuff.


1. Pumpkin Harvest Crisp flavored Chobani Greek Yogurt –



This might be the healthiest thing on today’s post. This yogurt is so good and I love the little crunchy pieces that you flip into the pumpkin yogurt. Soooo good.


2. Pumpkin Noosa yogurt –

Nummm. Num.....

Nummm. Num…..

I’ve highlighted this before, but it’s worth repeating. This stuff is amazing.


3. Pumpkin Spice coffee with Pumpkin Spice Coffeemate flavoring –

A morning routine. Wake up. This stuff.

Love my coffee every. single. morning.

My morning routine: Wake up. Make a cup of coffee. Begin my Bible study. This is a perfect way to start my day. 🙂 And during this time of year, I often have the Pumpkin Spice coffee with Pumpkin Spice Coffeemate creamer. Love me some pumpkin.


4. Pumpkin Cheesecake Concrete Mixer from Culver’s –

Pumpkin Cheesecake concrete mixer from Culver's. Oh. Delish.


This cold ice cream treat is my very favorite thing to order when we go to Culver’s. I love the pumpkin flavor with the little bits of cheesecake. This shake concrete mixer is dangerously good.


5. Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins –

Tasty Halloween candy...Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins.

Tasty Halloween candy…Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins. The BEST.

These little things. They are addictive. I have a hard time eating just one. #noselfcontrol



6. My Pumpkin Bar recipe –

These are so good.

These are so good.

I have made these so many times and they are sooooo moist and yummy. The cream cheese frosting is a great way to top off these delicious bars. I posted the recipe here Pumpkin Bars recipe.


7. Pumpkin muffins (with cream cheese frosting, of course) from Coffeesmiths –

Coffeesmiths has AMAZING pumpkin muffins.

Though you might think these are cupcakes, I beg to differ. Coffeesmiths sells these pumpkin muffins and they are my absolute fav. I feel much more health-conscious eating a “muffin”. Totally makes it okay to order a healthy muffin with a tasty cafe’ au lait or a pumpkin pie latte.

Yum. Pumpkin Pie cafe' au lait or a Skinny Pumpkin Pie Latte.

8. Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Pecan Waffles Bath & Body Works candles –

Two of my favorite Bath & Body Works candles...

These were on sale last week and I stocked up. My absolute favorite is the Pumpkin Pecan Waffles candle.


9. Bath & Body Works soaps –

We love the Bath & Body Works soaps! Especially these scents :)

We love these soaps. And the foam soap is easy to wash off the boys’ hands. Clean hands and yummy smelling hands. A bonus for this mama.


10. Candy pumpkins –

Candy pumpkins and candy corn. YUM.

Candy pumpkins and candy corn. YUM.

These darn little candy pumpkins are not my friends anymore. No. Because they are just too tempting and I guess I don’t have enough self-control when I walk by our kitchen island and see these sitting in the glass pumpkin bowl. I might need to go to therapy for the lack of self-control I’m showing when I see these little pumpkins around. I may or may not have already bought more than five bags of these darn pumpkins this fall…HEY. Who’s counting?

Now, I am aware of all the other pumpkin choices out there. Pumpkin Spice this. Pumpkin Spice that. BUT. Not all are things that are made of Pumpkin Spice are noteworthy. These things I’ve highlighted just happen to be some of MY favorite pumpkin things. How about you? Do you have any recommendations of pumpkin things I should try?

Happy National Pumpkin Day friends!  xo Angela Banae
