Pumpkin spice is everywhere this Halloween, but maybe it shouldn’t be

It all started with the Starbucks SBUX, +1.29% pumpkin spice latte in 2003.

To say it was well-received would be an understatement and, now, 13 years later, brands across numerous industries have joined the pumpkin party. This year, General Mills GIS, +0.35% introduced pumpkin spice Cheerios and Kellogg’s K, +0.27% debuted pumpkin spice Nutri-Grain bars, Lindt LISN, +1.66% released its pumpkin spice chocolates and McDonald’s MCD, +0.50% in Japan created pumpkin spice-inspired fries.
