Seasonal, schmeasonal

I am almost out of my seasonal items from fall/Christmas and I’m overcome with anxiety about how I will live without them. Most of them happen to be pumpkin items….which I get is seasonal.  But come on.  These are more about the pumpkin spice (which is available all year) and I can still get canned pumpkin at the store…so why can’t I buy this stuff?
Exhibit A: Pumpkin Spice creamer.  I use a tablespoon in my coffee each morning.  I love it.  It’s spicy, sweet, and perfect.  I did find a “spiced cream” but it’s not the same.
Exhibit B: Gingerbread K-cups.  This coffee is so yummy I actually don’t put creamer in it typically (although it’s delish with a splash of coconut milk).  I suddenly can’t find this in stores anymore.  I have found some online, but I REALLY don’t want to overpay with shipping and such.
Exhibit C: Seasonal Clif bars.  I don’t usually love Clif bars, but these three flavors are TO DIE FOR.  They are the perfect grab and go breakfast.  Pecan Pie, Spiced Pumpkin Pie, and Gingerbread.  WHY CAN’T THEY SELL THESE YEAR ROUND? I would love them just as much if they weren’t seasonal. And yes, I can find them online, but I pay like double the price to get them as I did when they were available in my neighborhood grocery store. 🙁
Exhibit D: Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat.  This is the perfect combination of delish Shock Top with almost a cidery sweetness.  And anything Honeycrisp Apple is AMAZING.  So drinking it? YUM.
Exhibit E: Aldi’s Pumpkin Ravioli. I do have two bags of this left in the freezer (because I stock up like CRAZY) but this is the perfect meal.  Just boil the ravioli and add a little garlic butter. OMG. SO good.
What seasonal things do you love?  Are you crying with me that we will have to wait like 9 months for these items to be back in our stores?


  1. The beer sounds good. I love the Hard Cider so I would probably like this too!

  2. YES! I love hate when all of the sudden in January, the peppermint mocha creamer is gone! Sad times!!! xx
