There are some things in life that are just meant to be together. Pumpkin spice and lattes. Pumpkin spice and Baileys. Hell, even pumpkin spice and bagels.

But has anyone in their right mind ever said, "Do you know what this world needs? Pumpkin spice and Spam." No. No they have not.

Now I'm not saying I'm against pumpkin spice as flavour, in fact I'm as basic as they come when it comes to a fancy coffee with all that cinnamon and nutmeggy goodness. But we have to draw the line somewhere, people.

With this in mind, here are 14 foods, drinks and household items that have no right to be pumpkin spiced.

1. Pumpkin spice houmous

Houmous is perfectly good as it is, please stop ruining it by stuffing unnecessary things in there.

2. Pumpkin spice cheese

Surely we don't have to explain this one.

3. And pumpkin spice cream cheese

Saying that, this would probably be quite nice on the bagels, wouldn't it?

4. Pumpkin spice chewing gum

5. Pumpkin spice crisps

I wouldn't know whether to dunk these into melted chocolate or spicy salsa (more on that later...)

6. And pumpkin spice Pringles in particular

Still, the pumpkin ones are definitely a better choice than the white chocolate peppermint version.

Maybe I'm not giving dogs enough credit here, but I'm just not sure they care if their treats taste like autumn or not.

Perfect for dunking those pumpkin spice crisps into


Or not.

And seeing as I've been so down on pumpkin spice for the past couple of minutes, here are two things that do deserve the pumpkin spice treatment: poke cake and pretzels. So get stuck in!
