Pumpkin ice cream from Abbott's Frozen Custard
Shipyard Pumpkinhead beer with a cinnamon rim
It's pumpkin season and Eat Up New England is ALL IN! Fall is one of my favorite times of year because of all of the pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavors foods and drinks. 

There are so many pumpkin-flavored beers on the market these days, but I will always order a Shipyard Pumpkinhead, which is brewed in Maine. The flavor is fantastic especially when complimented with a cinnamon rim. 

While we're talking about drinks, fall is pumpkin-flavored coffee season. I enjoy Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte as much as anyone else, but I often order it ICED and still topped off with whipped cream. Another amazing Starbucks drink this time of the year is their hot caramel apple cider.  Cold cider in New England is delicious from just about anywhere. Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury, Vermont and The Big Apple in Wrentham, Massachusetts are two of my favorite places for cider AND cider donuts. (See Eat Up New England's archives for full stories on both places.)

Pumpkin ice cream is also one of my fall favorites. Today, I enjoyed some pumpkin custard from Abbott's Frozen Custard at the Needham Fall Festival in Needham, Massachusetts. Bliss Dairy in Attleboro, Massachusetts also makes a fine pumpkin ice cream.

Grocery stores sell an outrageous amount of pumpkin-flavored items this time of the year. Trader Joe's is one of my favorite places for pumpkin. I love their Pumpkin O's cereal, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin waffles and spiced cider. My sister raves about their pumpkin cinnamon rolls. I haven't tried them, but I will soon. 

Embrace the pumpkin. Enjoy the fall because we all know what season is next.
