All The Pumpkin-Flavored Snacks You Should Be Excited About
October has hit, which means pumpkin-flavored snacks are taking over our grocery store shelves. Most of these are labelled as “limited edition,” so we’ve collected some of our favorites to narrow down the best of the best. For our more dedicated foodies, we’ve even included a special pumpkin bread recipe for those wanting to bake their own pumpkin-flavored treat this Fall.

You don’t only have to shop pumpkin-flavored snacks, you can also make your own! Personally, I love a warm homemade pumpkin spiced bread. It’s great for breakfast or even dessert. This recipe is a special fall tradition between my best friend, Paul and I. Follow the recipe below to make a delicious pumpkin bread for your family and friends.
Mrs. Langford’s Special Pumpkin Bread
3 cups all-purpose white flour
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon double-acting baking powder (like the brand, Clabber Girl)
1 15 ounce can of organic pumpkin
2/3 cup canola oil
3 eggs, slightly beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease (with softened butter or cooking spray) two standard loaf pans (9” by 5”). In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: the flour, sugar, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder, using a large fork to mix. Add the remaining ingredients and mix with a large spoon until well blended. Pour into the prepared loaf pans. Bake uncovered about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire racks for 10 minutes or so before removing from pans and cooling completely.
