adventures in a culinary neophyte's kitchen

seasonal sucker

so delicious pumpkin

One of the things I pride myself on is my grocery shopping proficiency. I make lists, plan a route, study the circulars… I’m basically a supermarket Rain Man. Avocados are on sale this week. Yeah, definitely four for $5. Uh oh, long line at checkout. I militantly stick to my list, steadfast in my in pursuit of savings and abbreviated supermarket visits. But sometimes — just sometimes — I cross paths with a seasonal or novelty item packaged or marketed in such a way that I cannot say no.

Enter SO Delicious‘ pumpkin spice coconut milk. Hooooly wow.

I was sucked in during the holidays when I spied a long line of bright cartons on the end cap at ShopRite: Mint Chocolate, Egg Nog and Pumpkin Spice. All dairy- and gluten-free, and good enough to drink straight from the carton with the fridge door ajar, telling yourself that it’s probably not the best idea to drink the entire quart in one shot, but doing it anyway. (Don’t judge me.) The former two flavors seem to have petered off as Christmas fades into the rearview, but Pumpkin Spice remains and sometimes its sweet, creamy goodness is just too much to pass up, even if it’s not on my list.
