It’s FINALLY time for pumpkin + pumpkin spice flavor to return to our kitchens, favorite stores and products. We-re not the only ones; Americans love pumpkin so much that last year 37 percent of the population bought a pumpkin-flavored item. We also buy enough pumpkin spice flavored items to make the economic market skyrocket. Pumpkin spice is a $361 million dollar franchise each year.

Eggs are so outstanding that the month of May is National Egg Month, a whole month to celebrate eggs!
