While you’re going over that hurricane supply list, how about a little diversion for a minute or two? It’s heeeeeeere! Pumpkin spice has arrived just about everywhere you look.

 

Starbucks has made it an event with, get this, hatching the first one. You can watch the stream live. Whipped cream NEVER optional. By the way they’re also selling the mix in stores. Not to be outdone Dunkin’ Donuts has a full lineup of all things pumpkin and they’re also making a game out of it.

 

World Market was way ahead of the pack releasing their Pumpkin Spice Ground Coffee in August which by the way was National Coffee Month. But would you have pumpkin flavored Cheerios for breakfast?

 

Donuts, donuts everywhere and just don’t count the calories. Krispy Kreme will do the “one day only” deal for their Pumpkin Spice Donuts at participating stores only. Too much work for one day for you?

 

Not enough? There’s also the White Pumpkin Pie M & M’s.  But geez, $3.49 for an eight ounce bag? They also  have“Cookies And Screeem” for your trick-or-treaters. Or in you desk at work.

 

But back to that hurricane readiness list. It’s the height of the season and now is the time to double-check your personal plan for keeping your family safe. Start with one click in the Dove Hurricane Guide for that and more on the progress of Hurricane Irma.
