It’s finally fall and that can mean only one thing… PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING.
Did you know that… Pumpkin Spice usually doesn’t contain pumpkin at all? Pumpkin Spice is a mixture of Ground Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Allspice and Cloves! These seasonings are often used together when cooking pumpkin so it was more the association with pumpkins that caused the mixture to receive its name.
In the 1950s, spice companies started selling the spice mixture as ‘Pumpkin Pie Spice’ and in the 1960s it was simplified to ‘Pumpkin Spice.’ In 1995 a candle company in New Mexico made the first known Pumpkin Spice Candle, but the early 2000s really kicked off the pumpkin spice craze, thanks to the latte beverage we all either love or hate.
