And so it begins! Pumpkin-spotting season lasts from approximately late August (in really impatient markets) through December. With the exception of beer (for reasons to be described subsequently), all pumpkin-flavored (real and artificial) products are up for grabs. I am exempting pumpkin-flavored beer not because it isn't a noble category but because there are too many varieties, the majority of which are available only by the expensive six-pack.
After all, money doesn't grow on trees. And neither do pumpkins for that matter.
I wondered, however, if the addition of another fragrant layer of pumpkin cream atop the milk chocolate stratum would correct this imbalance, or at least, liven up the flavor.
Nope. Not when the pumpkin filling is itself bland.
