Every fall brings the crackly-fireplace deliciousness of pumpkin spice—that miraculous combo of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and allspice. It's the aromatic mix that turns the regular goodness of dessert/candles/coffee into SO AMAZING MY FACE JUST FELL OFF AND I DON'T CARE.
While pumpkin spice is wonderful and irresistible, there are a few places where is just doesn't (and never will) belong:
- Jail, prison, or any other kind of detention center
- The DMV
- Gasoline/jet fuel
- Iocane powder
- Bodily effluvia
- Heavy metal band Slipknot
- The process known as smelting
- Peat moss
- Nautical instruments
- Industrial-sized buckets of mayonnaise
- Disposable diapers
- Actual pumpkins
What else should never taste or smell like pumpkin?
