First there was the trend of selling Halloween crap way too early. Then it morphed into putting pumpkin spice in everything. Now they've combined to form a new monstrosity: a tsunami of Pumpkin Spice-themed crap on shelves way too early.

Consumerist put together a list of some regular day things you can get Pumpkin Spiced this fall season:

  • Hostess Pumpkin Spice Twinkies. They're regular flavored Twinkies, but with a brown pumpkin spice-flavored cream filling that just looks, weird.
  • Hostess Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes. This time the filling is plain cream, and the CUPCAKES are pumpkin spice-flavored. It's all very confusing.
  • Arnold bread makes a 'limited edition' whole grain loaf with Pumpkin Spice and Roasted Seeds. Why?
  • Pumpkin Dish Soap. Sure, there were hand soaps and candles and everything. But now there's pumpkin spice dish soap. Actually, it's called "Pumpkin Hand Rejuvenating Dish Washing Liquid." Luckily you can only get it at the supermarket chain Giant.
