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.

Happy National Taco Day! Although we frequently celebrate #TacoTuesday, we’ll take any excuse to eat tacos 😉 Everyone seems to love tacos so much, that billions are consumed each year. In fact, in 2012 4.5 billion tacos were eaten worldwide, across 30,910 Mexican restaurants. To give you a better understanding, 4.5 billion tacos stretches 490,000 miles of tacos. That’s enough to travel to the MOON… yes the moon, and back! That’s also 775 million pounds of tacos equivalent to the weight of 2 Empire State Buildings in New York, New York!
