Pumpkin Spice Chaos: The Strangest Products That Have Turned Pumpkin

By this time of the season, you're probably an expert at handcrafting pumpkin spice lattes with your Mr. Coffee® Pump Espresso Maker. Nothing says fall quite like brewing a fresh latte at home, snuggling up with a flannel blanket and watching the multicolored leaves drop from the trees. Yes, pumpkin spice is more than just a delicious drink flavoring - it's becoming a phenomenon. Everywhere you look, it seems like more and more products are adopting the flavor, scent or color of pumpkin.

The original, the best.The original, the best.

Here are seven odd products that are taking pumpkin spice in directions you probably didn't think possible.

1. Gelatin
There's something wrong about pumpkin spice that jiggles. It could go well with a dollop of whipped cream, but that's what coffee and pie are for, aren't they? Gelatin is number one on this list because it takes a bold pumpkin spice fanatic to give it a try.

2. Potato chips
No, not pumpkin chips - potato chips flavored with pumpkin spice. What would pair well with this unique snack? Actually, on second thought it's probably best to enjoy this one on its own terms.

3. Mints
Need to freshen up? Pumpkin spice mints might do the trick. However, there's an easier way to get this taste in your mouth. It's called a delicious pumpkin spice latte.

Everything is now pumpkin spice. Is that a good thing? Everything is now pumpkin spice. Is that a good thing?

4. Air fresheners
If your car is getting a bit smelly, freshen it up with one of these pumpkin spice scented air fresheners. Warning: They'll probably make you want a latte every time you hop in the driver's seat.

5. Dog Treats
Don't let Fido miss out on the flavor of the season. This year, you can get doggie biscuits that taste of pumpkin spice. Will your pooch enjoy the taste as much as you do? That's to be seen. But sharing is caring, after all.

6. Soap
Hop in the shower after a long day of work and come out smelling of - no, not roses - pumpkins, of course! This scented soap will make you smell of your favorite drink. It might confuse your roommates.

7. Shampoo
You thought soap was enough? Go further in your effort to actually become one with pumpkin spice and turn your hair into an autumn bouquet with this special shampoo. Going outside after your pumpkin bath might cause some heads to turn, but you're just getting into the season, right?

You could replace every item in your house with something pumpkin spice inspired. But never forget where the flavor belongs - in your homemade coffee.
