A Definite Case of Over Kill

Apparently, based on this latest flyer, the good people at Trader Joe's have all gone quite mad over - of all things - pumpkins!

I am not unaware that today is October 11th and that Halloween is October 31st and that Thanksgiving will be our next national holiday.  Yes, pumpkin pie is a tradition here. 

However, their shopping list goes like this:

Bakery - Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Beverages (non have alcohol) ((more's the pity)) - Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte
Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pumpkin Spice Rooibos

Cheese - Pumpkin Cream Cheese

Frozen - Mini Pumpkin pies, Pumpkin Bread Pudding, Cheesecake, Croissants, Ice Cream, Macaroons, Waffles!

Grocery - Pumpkin granola, instant oatmeal, bar baking mix, butter, pancake mix, soup, toaster pastries

Products & Flowers - miniature pumpkin trees

Refrigerator - honey-roasted pumpkin ravioli

Snacks and Sweets - Pumpkin Cranberry crisps, biscotti

For Your Pet - Pumpkin Dog Treats!!!

I can't go on.  I feel like I'm typing in a whirling maelstrom of flying pumpkins!  I'm going to have to sit on the couch for awhile.  Perhaps with a refreshing noggin of KBC Pumpkin Ale.  Then again -- probably not!
