National Pumpkin Spice Day

National Pumpkin Spice Day

National Pumpkin Spice Day is on October 1st.

What do cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, and October 1 have in common?

They are all part of National Pumpkin Spice Day

We divide the world into factions. Left vs. Right. Solar vs. Gas. Privacy vs. Freedom of Information. But if you really want to turn a conversation on its head, divide the room into Pumpkin Spice vs. Anti-Pumpkin Spice.

Right about the time school starts (and some of them start in early August), pumpkin spice lovers begin waxing poetically about fall and their favorite flavor. It’s not all on the shoulders of the pumpkin spice lover, though. Coffee shops, bakeries, and stores on every corner begin selling their pumpkin spice merchandise. Pumpkin spice ushers in the savory-sweet season of autumn like no other spice combination does. It conjures up images of Fall foliage littering paths on a cool morning. But pumpkin spice isn’t just a flavor – it’s a personal style. The burnt umber, harvest gold, and cinnamon toast sprinkles home décor, apparel, and even decorates parties and weddings.


These days, pumpkin spice can be celebrated in any number of ways. We even offer a list to get you started.

  • Mix up your own pumpkin spice blend using cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, and nutmeg.
  • Bake a pumpkin pie.
  • Experiment with pumpkin spice flavor in your favorite baked goods recipes.
  • Try this Pumpkin Bread recipe.
  • Slip into the nearest coffee shop for their best pumpkin spice brew.
