What’s Up Peekskill? Pumpkin Spice!

I never had a pumpkin spice latte, that venerable drink which debuted with Starbucks in 2003, and I hope I never will (its the color of our President’s spray tan). But does it really have to be everywhere? I’m surprised I don’t have pumpkin spice toilet paper. And by the way, pumpkin is not a spice, it’s a gourd. She was Ginger Spice, people, not Pumpkin Spice!
