Pumpkins are contorted into pies, drinks, and even ice cream. There seems to be nowhere to hide from the pumpkin craze.
If you are one of the few people that doesn’t leap for joy at the very mention of “pumpkin”, chances are fall isn’t your favorite! Yet there is still hope. While fall foods have been highly associated with pumpkins, there are other autumn flavored options for the pumpkin haters out there. You just need to know where to look.
