Today’s NaBloPoMo challenge is to tell you about my favorite autumnal flavor. First of all, I didn’t know that autumnal was a word. Secondly, a favorite flavor for Fall? Oy, I have no idea. My taste buds don’t know the difference between the four Seasons.
I’d have to say pumpkin. Or pumpkin spice. I don’t like plain old pumpkin, I mean pumpkin pie. Or a pumpkin spiced latte. However, I am trying to stay sugar free. Getting around a sugar-free pumpkin pie is easy but ordering a sugar free pumpkin spiced latte from Starbucks? I’m not so sure. I haven’t tried to order one yet this year.
Apples are also known for a favorite Fall flavor but it is not one of mine. Don’t get me wrong, I like apples okay but I am not gaga over them. Apple cider? Meh. Apple pie? Meh. I can take it or leave it. However, I can eat some apples and cheese. I guess I just don’t like flavored apple stuff.
Chocolate. When is chocolate ever out of season I ask you. It’s not. Ever. I have switched from liking regular old milk chocolate to loving dark chocolate. I don’t eat a lot of it anymore, because you know, the whole sugar free thing. My coworker normally has a candy dish filled with little bite sized Dove chocolates on her desk. I have one of those per day – dark chocolate.
Those are the only flavors I can think of that pertain to Fall. Or that remind me of Fall anyway. I am not a Foodie type of person. Oh, I like to eat food, it’s just that I am not a producer of food.
