It’s no secret that pumpkin spice is here to stay. Starbucks introduced its limited-edition Pumpkin Spice Latte in the early 2000s, selling millions of units in the first 15 years. Other companies quickly followed suit, with pumpkin spice popping up earlier each autumn and including products ranging from candles to body wash, cereal to crackers. Plus, a lot more coffee. But enough is enough. We’re tired of waiting all year for pumpkin spice. It’s time to make it a year-round flavor.
Pumpkin spice brings feelings of comfort and warmth, often invoking memories of changing leaves, and cooler (yet still tolerable) weather. At this point, it has become synonymous with a certain time of year, but we feel it’s delicious enough to enjoy 365 days a year. Whoever said you can’t drink pumpkin in the summer has never had pumpkin spiced cold brew.
If you bleed, sweat and cry pumpkin spice, or you simply like the inviting flavor in a totally normal way (there’s room for everyone), we’ve got the best pumpkin spice products for you below.

2. Pet Odor Exterminator Candle
Can’t get rid of a bad smell? Covering it up doesn’t get to the root of the issue and remove it for good.

There are lots of pumpkin scented candles out there, but this one pulls double duty by also neutralizing unpleasant smells.
