It's official: Pumpkin spice creep is worse than Christmas creep. Because it's June 15th . . . and the first pumpkin spice product is already on shelves.
A guy in Germantown, Wisconsin spotted Special K Pumpkin Spice Crunch cereal at Walmart this week, and he sent in a photo to the website The Impulsive Buy.
Last year, the first product of the season was Werther's Originals pumpkin spice caramels . . . but they had the discipline to wait until late July to put them out. This Special K is out a month and a half earlier.
