Floreakeats is tackling one of the most important issues dividing American families today: Pumpkin Spice. Some people love it. Some people hate it. I don’t fully understand half of these people, but I also usually don’t understand which is my left hand.
It’s still a free country (for a few more days) and people can put a shot of whatever the hell they flavoring they want in their Dunkaccino. Im trying to figure things out. See what I’m missing. So, I’ve invited my cousin Sarah Parviz, a spice-lover, and fellow curmudgeon to taste-test and jointly review spice-ish products.
In today’s edition, Sarah and I approach an intriguingly spreadable offering from our pals at Trader Joe’s.
Trader Joes Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter
Sarah: I have a warning, and a review. First, the warning – under no circumstances should you open this jar and start stuffing the cookie butter into your mouth like you are a starving wolverine, finishing approximately 25% of the jar in one sitting. It may color your opinion of this product and give you the sugar-gags. Not that I would know anything about this, but I’ve heard things…

Mike: Well, that’s not something you encounter every day. There’s a lot of ginger on the front end and a lot of tiny crunchy bits on the back-end. I suppose those are “cookies?” It has a very autumny taste for sure – and what a unique texture!
I can easily imagine myself donning a nice a warm sweater, opening a jar of this, then using it to fill cracked plaster in my hallway.
