Etsomnia™ Volume 60: Pumpkin Fever

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.)

This week’s edition is about the nutty proliferation of pumpkin crap which has suddenly appeared in every commercial, on every menu, in everything from pet shampoo and dog treats to beloved snack cakes and classic candy. Look, I like the occasional pumpkin spice latte (that’s PSL to those in the know) as much as the next guy, but enough is enough!

As usual, links to the items for sale appear below each picture. For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts. Follow me on Bloglovin!

  3. I agree with you; sometime over the last couple of years, everyone has lost their mind with this pumpkin spice thing. The dog treats crack me up because dogs don’t care what the treat tastes like, they will eat their own poo for crying out loud. The Doritos and the Listerine are the best of your picks today, though. First you eat the PS Doritos (which sound gross BTW), then you rinse your mouth with PS Listerine…NASTY!

  5. You have outdone yourself: there is nothing remotely appealing in this week’s showcase. I loathe pumpkin spice. It is entirely vile. The fact that entire shelves in the supermarket are filled with every conceivable product made over with pumpkin spice baffles me and makes me dry heave.

    • I confess to liking it in moderation, but I understand how that volume of something you dislike must be awful. I feel about pumpkin spice how I feel about Christmas. Good in theory, nice in VERY small doses, completely ruined every year by obnoxious overexposure. And yet every year, I am surprised. I’m an idiot that way.
