  1. I love pumpkin everything! Pumpkin Spice chapstick… not so sure! I have purchased a couple of the Trader Joe’s items, but wasn’t aware of the others! Thank you!

  2. I like pumpkin and all the products you highlighted sound appealing. I admit though that my favourite use of pumpkin remains in pumpkin pie.
