Pumpkin Spice & Minnesota Nice

November 14th, 2012 · 19 comments

In Manhattan, a shortage of pumpkin spice lattes triggered mayhem overshadowed only by an actual disaster.

In Minnesota, however, it seems that some folks still haven’t heard the news that “Pumpkin is the New Bacon.”At our submitter’s office in Minneapolis, a proffered can of pumpkin spice tea sparked a Midwestern snark-off, complete with smilies.

enjoy. Tastes better than it smells then why don't you drink it :) Now now children I AM NOT A CHILD!! sounds like somebody has mommy issues

      I loved spiced teas – as potpourri.

      Ah MN, where one must wonder how crappy the gift must be since it has been gifted.

    this is as fake as the artificial pumpkin flavoring in the tea.

      Repetition is not the formula for humor, but I have to admit you are persistent in your pointless endeavor.

      And it’s a boring trick, to boot.

    The flak somebody gets for being nice and sharing the pumpkin tea. I mean, how dare they think to share, they should’ve kept it all to themselves as proof that the tea is delicious.

      Oh… I think you’re on to something here. If offering to share drives people away, and keeping it all to themselves would make people want to want it more because obviously it must be delicious if they won’t share, then the solution to all the food-thief in offices is to offer the food to everyone. Genius!
