For as big of a fame whore as it is, you’d think pumpkin season lived and died by the introduction of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. But long before the PSL arrived, National Pumpkin Day (Oct. 26) has been the day to celebrate everyone’s favorite ubiquitous holiday symbol: the pumpkin.
This is the day when we all work ourselves into a frenzy over the anticipation of pumpkin pie, pumpkin festivals, pumpkin bake-offs, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and various versions of pumpkin beer we’d never actually be caught dead drinking at any other time. Pumpkins are the mascot for not only autumn and harvest, but Halloween, Thanksgiving and, once they start rotting on your doorstep, the shedding of a year and the beginning of a new one.
To honor everyone’s favorite seasonal talisman, here are five pumpkin flavored edibles to jump start your holidays.
1. Infusion Pumpkin Cookies
Each of these pumpkin cookies from Glendale Greenhouse dispensary in Arizona contain 100 mg of THC and are topped with real cream cheese frosting, pecans and dried pumpkin flakes.
2. Mini Pumpkin Pies
