Is this Pumpkin Spice For Real? Find Out the Crazy Truth & Enter Our #PumpkinSpiceGiveaway

Has pumpkin spice flavoring gone over the top? It's hard to know anymore what's an actual product and what's just a joke. So we decided to do some serious pumpkin investigating and find out: which seemingly extreme items are real, and which are fake? It isn't as easy as you'd think!

Below are 8 pumpkin spice items. Five are real and three are fake. Can you tell which is which? The answer (and a pumpkin spice treats giveaway!) is at the bottom of this post.

Pumpkin Spice Astrology

Can't decide what pumpkin spice treat to eat next? Don't worry! The stars will tell you! Just find your birthdate on the astrology calendar and you'll soon learn if you should be eating pumpkin spice chili or Halo Top pumpkin pie ice cream. It's that simple.

Pumpkin Spice Scratch 'n Sniff Clothing

Google 'pumpkin spice clothing' and you'll see plenty of t-shirts with sayings like "Pumpkin spice is my favorite season" and "I like pumpkin spice a latte." But do any of them actually SMELL like pumpkin spice? Not until now! Just rub the appliqué on your belly and the scent of fall will waft into the air.

Pumpkin Spice Pet Shampoo

Flavored shampoo for humans is nothing new. But now your dog or cat can smell like pumpkin spice too. Yes, when your four-legged friend rolls around in the mud, replace that dirty smell with a pumpkin spice wash. Just be careful about using it on hungry pets, as they may crawl around in circles, looking for the real pie to eat!

Pumpkin Spice Toilet Paper

Most toilet paper is boring and unscented. Luckily, home product retailers have finally decided to add flavor to our lives by selling pumpkin spice toilet paper. It will freshen both you and your bathroom this fall!

Pumpkin Spice Deoderant

It's so lovely to walk into a house that smells like freshly-baked pie. Now you can bring that scent in with you! Just buy the new all-natural deoderant that has the scent of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Hurry, it's only out for a limited time.

Spray-On Pumpkin Spice

Are you so addicted to pumpkin spice that you want everything you eat to taste like it? Now you can - with a bottle of spray-on pumpkin spice flavoring. Squirt it on your eggs for a pumpkiny breakfast. Mist it on your turkey sandwich for a lunch that tastes like Thanksgiving. Spray it on your meatballs for a dinner that's, um, different.

Pumpkin Spice Pumpkins

More than 10 years after the release of the original Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, botanists have finally figured out how to cross pumpkins with cinnamin and clove plants to create the ultimate fall squash. This new pumpkin spice pumpkin looks a little browner than your standard pumpkin, but it smells and tastes spicier. Look for it at your local farmer's market, beginning fall 2018!

Delicious Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Made Without Sugar, But Tastes Just as Sweet
