It seems to me that random holidays are popping up everywhere. In fact, I just found out that my birthday is also National Coffee Day. I’m not complaining! We decided to hop on the holiday bandwagon and create one of our own — Pumpkin Day. I think Pumpkin Day, which takes place on October 1, should be an annual event. We agreed to hold off on pumpkin flavored everything (food, coffee, beer, etc.) and have it all (or most of it) on October 1. It was a great success.
Next up — pumpkin spice lattes from Stickboy Bakery. We brought pumpkin spice marshmallows (oh yeah, they exist) to add to our drinks.
After a short break, we moved on to pumpkin spice cookies (from a mix, I’ll admit it) with orange Halloween frosting and pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses.
Last up on the Pumpkin Day agenda was pumpkin beer! Our favorite beer & wine store in Boone had a convenient sampler of pumpkin beers. We tried them all, and they are pictured with our favorite on the far left and least favorite on the far right.
We agreed — the Cottonwood Pumpkin was the best!
