Weirdest Uses for Pumpkin
By Teresa K. Flatley
This year I have noticed a lot more products bragging that they are made from pumpkin.
I like pumpkin as much as the next person, but some of these uses may have jumped the shark. But they have all been tried, at least by somebody.
~~ Pumpkin waffles (I actually bought these. What was I thinking?)
~~ Pumpkin Pot Pie. No thanks. Pot pies are special just the way they are.
~~ Pumpkin facials. Ewwww.
~~ Real Pumpkin candleholders. These work fine until such time as the pumpkin decides to rot and then even the large size of vanilla candles will not mask that smell.
~~ Pumpkin candy.
~~ Pumpkin purses. Huh?
~~ Pumpkin air freshener.
~~Pumpkin foot scrub.
~~ Pumpkin bird feeders and houses. Again, not much shelf life for these.
~~ Pumpkin wine
