Seasonal food review: Pumpkin!

October is my favorite month for many reasons, but my favorite?  The release of limited-time pumpkin goodies at many restaurants. This will be a review-in-progress as I make my way down the list. These are in ranked order of my favorites:

Pumpkin pie blizzard from Dairy Queen:  All the parts of the pumpkin pie you love (the flavor, the chunks of crust), mixed into vanilla soft-serve and eaten icy cold! I absolutely cannot get enough of this stuff.

Pumpkin Cheesecake from Olive Garden: I need to get a slice this season before I review, but I know it's amazing!

Pumpkin Supreme pie from Bob Evans:  This was a last-minute addition to my carryout dinner a few weeks ago. It is layers of pumpkin pie and a smooth cream cheese filling. The crust was flaky and easy to break into, and I was happy I didn't have to share it:)

Pumpkin Spice muffin from Tim Horton's:  Yum! Dad brought me one of these little surprises for breakfast one day. You think there is only a dollop of cream cheese on the top, but is injected into the entire muffin!  So, every bite gets a little bit of cream cheese to balance out the spice of the muffin. 

Pumpkin Pecan Pie Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory:  Yeah... one would think this would be at the top of the list, but it didn't make it. Sure, it was delicious, but too many competing flavors. I love pumpkin pie, cheesecake, and pecan pie. But combined, there was too much to think about (along with the $7 price tag!)

What else do you have for me to add?

Great minds think a like. I, too, did a carryout on the Bob Evans Pumpkin Supreme! Delish!
