I grew up a hater of anything pumpkin; as I imagined that it would taste alot like a sour potato, and the idea of having that in a pie was something that made me sick at the very thought of it. Years went by, and I would see people eating pumpkin pie and think "that must be gross. fools" that was until a few years ago when I was tricked into having a piece of pumpkin pie with whipped cream. I can remember it like it was yesterday, I was so into the pie, thinking "man, this cinamon nutmeg pie is awesome." after finishing the pie I was then told that I had actually eaten pumpkin pie; what wasted years I thought. Why did I deprive myself of the brilliance that is the pumpkin? Nostalgia aside, I have since fallen in love with the pumpkin, and the glorious treats it produces.
That brings me to the point of this whole post - As they do in the fall, the good people of Starbucks have released their amazing cream cheese pumpkin muffin. I love this thing, and have enjoyed three in the past 3 days. I even considered eating another one today, but was thwarted when starbucks had sold out of them; maybe a sign from a higher power that I should wait? Nevertheless, I will return tommorow. If you were like me and avoid pumpkin like the plague, do yourself a favor and drop in on a pumpkin cream cheese muffin, your tummy will thankyou.
Ode to the pumpkin muffin - I hate you pumpkin muffin for making me fat. I hate you pumpkin muffin for making me spend all my money. I hate you pumpkin muffin for the time I waste thinking about eating you…. I love you pumpkin muffin.. Until tommorow
