Sometimes when I am all stressed out at work, I take the longish walk to Jamba Juice and get a smoothie for lunch. I went in last week and got the pumpkin smash. I heard it was “pumpkin pie through a straw”.
It actually is. Not “pumpkin spice”. But actual pumpkin. It was slimy, even.
The issue is that there is a serious curve in the diminishing marginal utility. After four or five sips, it is just too much. Because I didn’t think to take a picture, I stole this one from Serious Eats, that has a real review and even a recipe link. If Death by Pumpkin sounds good to you.
