  1. I'm intrigued about the pumpkin spice. What's in it?

    1. Don't know, doesn't list it. For mine, I use cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger (juice or powder), allspice, cloves, honey, maple, vanilla and soy. Then mix that with either tea or coffee.

      Sorry that doesn't answer your question, but they don't list the ingredients but that's what I put in mine when I do homemade.

    2. And nutmeg. Forgot that one. Just a basic mixture of spice and yum.

      Headed to make a cuppa now. Bag smells goooooooood.

    4. Oh, one more thing. What's the tea/coffee for?

    5. I do both. Sometimes coffee mixed with vanilla soy. Other times decaf tea, mixed with soy, really any combo that I have on hand.

      Same with sugars. Sometimes it's local maple syrup. Other times raw sugars, other times honey or really whatever I have.

      It's something I toss together on the spot but will say that cloves and allspice can get a good bite if I add too much.

      Coffee is brewing as I type and another batch of oatmeal raisin is in the oven.

      I love weekends!

  2. Do you normally grow your own coffee, dry it, and then grind it and dried pumpkin together? Because if you do, then that is damned impressive...

    1. You're such a bugger.

      I mix my own dry and wet ingredients (no pumpkin puree in mine), to make the spiced coffee.

      Smartass.

  3. I've been hearing about it, but I still don't know what pumpkin spice really is.

    1. It's a combo of spices built for Fall. Though for some, they put pureed pumpkin in their pumpkin spice lattes. I don't though. But I do love the spice combo.

    2. Though the coffee I just tried was horrible. How something that smelled so good could taste of ass, is beyond me.

      Taking it back tomorrow.

    3. and I still don't know what pumpkin spices are LOL....I'm guessing, cinnamon, ginger, cloves?

    4. Yeppers, all those warming spices. Some companies make bottled combo of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice. Others add cloves, and other warming spices.

      Think warm fall flavours. You guys don't have that there? So good.

  4. Pumpkin spice coffee? Well, I don't drink coffee in the first place, so that's new to me.

    1. Yeah, homemade is great but this stuff tasted of ass. I make pumpkin spiced tea, too.

      Heaven I tell ya, heaven.

    1. So fun to try new coffees, as long as I can return them when they are no good.

  7. Glad I read Adam's comment. I didn't have clue one what "a 360" meant. I'm so old!

    1. Are you old, or are you just not a gamer?

      You don't strike me as a gamer, or as and old fogey.
