The Nabisco logo is visible at an Oreo cookie display in a store July 1, 2003 in Miami, Florida. Kraft Foods Inc., the nations largest food manufacturer and the maker of Nabisco cookies and crackers, plans to examine the nutrition of its products and take steps to fight obesity and promote health.

I honestly had no idea they have been gone for 5 years!  I assumed everything pumpkin spice comes back every fall.

Here are the details:

Oreo’s “Pumpkin Spice Sandwich Cookies” are hitting store shelves on August 15, marking their return following a five-year hiatus. The limited-edition flavor features two golden Oreo cookies with a “festive pumpkin spice flavored cream” sandwiched in the middle.

Pumpkin Spice Food: 6 Abominations That Actually Existed

Pumpkin Spice is one of those things that bring a lot of joy and a lot of disgust. Truthfully, it’s easy to see both sides of this popular Fall flavor.

At one point, it seemed to be confined to just the Pumpkin Spice Latte found at your local Starbucks, but like a Mogwai getting wet, things started to take a turn.

Seemingly every Fall, you can’t turn your head without being greeted by a new Pumpkin Spice product, and not all of them are winners. Some of them were just…well…some of them were the six Pumpkin Spice items listed below.

  • Pumpkin Spice Chicken Sausage

    Mixing pumpkin spice with savory meats just doesn’t sound appetizing at all. This is a big NOPE!

  • Pumpkin Spice Hummus

    Hummus is SO delicious! Whose brilliant idea was it to add pumpkin spice to this delightful dip? Whose?! I want names!

  • Pumpkin Spice Pringles

    Once you pop these Pringles, perhaps you can stop. (Actually, yes…please stop.)

  • Pumpkin Spice Peeps

    In theory, Pumpkin Spice Peeps don’t sound too bad, but I’ve never been a fan of a seasonal treat that tries to expand into other parts of the year. Peeps need to stay in their Spring lane. You don’t see candy corn trying to make it happen in the Winter!

  • Pumpkin Spice Pasta Sauce

    If you listen carefully, you can hear someone’s Nonna crying in the kitchen.

  • Pumpkin Spice Spam

    Remember that thing about pumpkin spice and savory meats? Well, Spam would have to be meat — and not, for lack of a better term, “meat product” — for that logic to matter here. The folks at Hormel were clearly looking for attention on this one. (Mission: Accomplished, BTW.) However, when you’re a product that many already treat as suspect, don’t make it worse.
