WAIT! Summer is NOT over! Back away from the Pumpkin Spice
Walking in to stores in the area you are already seeing the patio furniture and grill items removed and the Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations brought in! WAIT! Summer is short enough as it is…please let us have a whole one. And now the pumpkin spice products are flowing. Pumpkin spice SPAM is a thing. And look what Coca-Cola is doing:
As the annual deluge of pumpkin spice-flavored coffee, snack cakes, cookies and candy bars begins flooding stores, Coca-Cola has announced the release of a holiday version of Coke that’s spiked with cinnamon. Cinnamon Coke is due to hit stores on September 13th, the company has announced. Although the blend will be a first for U.S. consumers, the holiday soda has already been successfully tested across the pond. It was released in the U.K. last year in regular and sugar-free versions.
The Coca-Cola Company, which also makes Sprite, will also release its holiday version — flavored with cranberry — the same day.
I’m sorry, I’m still wearing white and heading to the swimming pool!
