I Tried Every Pumpkin Spice Product I Could Find—Here Are My Favorites
File under: weekend plans.
Smell that? The warm and cozy fragrance of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves—It must be pumpkin spice latte (PSL) season. What once originated as a simple fall beverage has now turned into a movement that millions go crazy for.
Pumpkin spice has come a long way from just being a warm drink or flavored dessert. Everything from food to household cleaners and even beauty products have hopped on the PSL bandwagon, and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon. I tried as many pumpkin spice products as I could get my hands on and made a list of my absolute favorites.
