Girl Tries To Prove Her Head Fits In A Pumpkin, Doesn’t End Well

White girls have a reputation for being addicted to pumpkin around this time of year, but this girl went too far.

Trying to provide some comedic relief during her family’s pumpkin carving festivities, a teenage girl put her head inside a giant pumpkin, and as you can imagine, wound up getting it stuck.

The trouble started the moment she said, “Isn’t it so cute! I can probably fit my head in it.”

This video was shot by YouTube user Kristy Ralphs as she was just trying to record her family gathering, when things went south about 30 seconds in.

It was cute at first, but then the precocious youngster couldn’t get herself out of it, legitimately freaking out herself and her family.

The worst part of the video wasn’t even her getting stuck, it was undoubtedly her younger brother, who we can only assume is the middle child, unmercifully singing “I can carve a belly button on my pumpkin,” over and over again, with no end.

Too bad the video ended before she got her head out. But there is an additional video showing that she was fine and made it out OK. Even in this video, that f*cking kid somehow found a way to sneak in another verse of his annoying song.

There’s easier ways to feed your pumpkin spice problem, so don’t stick your head inside a giant pumpkin, no matter how great of an idea it sounds like.

Get Your Thanksgiving Fix Early With Panera Bread’s New Fall Menu

panera-turkey-cranberry-flatbread-sandwichIn keeping with seasonal tradition, Panera Bread has launched their new Fall menu. The chain’s new Turkey Cranberry Flatbread Sandwich brings customers an early taste of Thanksgiving. Filled with roasted turkey breast, cranberry mostarda, garlic herb cheese, and spinach, this flatbread is very similar to a previous fall menu panini that Panera offered a few years back.

A new addition to the pasta lineup includes Butternut Squash Ravioli, which features sage and egg striped noodles stuffed with butternut squash, butter, brown sugar and amaretti cookies topped with a leek and garlic cream sauce, topped with fresh baby arugula and onion shoestrings. How cookies belong in a ravioli is a little weird but whatever, as long as it’s related to pumpkin or Thanksgiving it still fall appropriate.

Customers with a sweet tooth can find a new pastry waiting for them at the front display. The Caramel Apple Scone is described as a cream based scone with caramel chips, dried cinnamon apples, and then topped with cinnamon apples and caramel icing.

Brand Eating reports that “Jack-O-Lantern cookies, Pumpkin Muffies, Cranberry Orange Muffins, apple chips as a topping for their Steel-Cut Oatmeal, Vegetarian Autumn Squash Soup, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Cherry Vanilla Bagels, Pumpkin Cookies, and Pumpkin Muffins” will also be making their autumn comeback.

Pumpkin Spice Hummus is Everything We Didn’t Ask For This Fall

pumpkin-spice-hummus-is-here-to-corrupt-your-bagel

October is just around the corner but we’ve been spoiling ourselves rotten with all the pumpkin things for the last month. No, seriously. Just when you thought we had it all with Pumpkin Spice Oreos and Pumpkin flavored booze, something else sneaks its way into the mix that makes you wonder if this pumpkin craze has gotten out of control.

Case in point, Pumpkin Spice Hummus. What the hell can we even eat this with, pumpkin spice tortilla chips? Pumpkin pita bread?

This hummus isn’t all that orange goodness scooped out from a pie, it’s still mainly tahini, garlic, and all that other savory stuff, just fancied up with the addition of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin seeds. Is this stuff sweet or savory? For the love of all things pumpkin, what the hell is this orange dip?!

Cedar’s Pumpkin Spice Hummus is available for a limited time.

Dunkin’ Donuts Launches Pumpkin Crème Brûlée-Flavored Lattes

pumpkincremebrulee

‘Tis the season for drowning ourselves in sweet creams and sugars, particularly those of the pumpkin-flavored variety. But in case Starbucks’ PSL is getting a little old, Dunkin’ Donuts has decided to step up its gourd game, by offering a drink that tastes not just like pumpkin, but pumpkin crème brûlée.

Presumably sweeter than your typical pumpkin spice, Dunkin’ Donuts PCB is available in both regular coffee and latte form, reports Business Insider. Also among the limited time fall line-up are pumpkin hot or iced mochas, pumpkin pie donuts and donut holes, and a pumpkin muffin.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go hop on a plane to the east coast and drink enough of those pumpkin crème brûlée lattes to turn me as round as a pumpkin or a ramekin. Kay, thanks.

That Pumpkin Spice Latte In Your Hand Almost Never Happened

pumpkin-spice-latte-history

It turns out that the Pumpkin Spice Latte, arguably the most beloved of cool-weather drinks, almost never existed. Ten years ago, as coffee gurus and execs at Starbucks were testing fall drink ideas, pumpkin spice quickly fell into the “meh” category, sinking behind flavors like chocolate caramel and cinnamon spice. But Peter Dukes, the espresso brand manager for the coffee giant, knew that the drink was a winner. He refused to scrap the idea, and now, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is one of Starbuck’s most popular seasonal drinks, developing a cult following similar to the Shamrock Shake or the Cronut.

The development of the sauce that makes the drink so popular came from months of testing and eating  many pumpkin pies: homemade, store bought, and even with a shot of espresso poured over the top. Now, the blend of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, steamed milk, espresso, whipped cream, and a pumpkin spice topping signals cooler weather to coffee drinkers across the country.

This season, the Pumpkin Spice Latte celebrates its tenth anniversary. Check out the #PSL tweets to see how people are celebrating the milestone and sharing their latte happiness.

Coca Cola Creates Hot Ginger Ale in a Can


hot-ginger-ale

When the weather gets cooler, you’ll pretty much buy anything that comes with orange and red, leaf-themed packaging. At least, that’s what Coca-Cola Japan is hoping. They’ve created “hot” Canada Dry Ginger Ale in a can, which comes in autumn-colored packaging. It also features some fancy tech to keep the drink carbonated while it heats up, an impressive feat that took the company four years to develop.

The drink itself sounds pretty tasty, like a fizzy, gingery hot toddy, with extra ginger and spices to make the recipe more suitable for cold weather. Hot Ginger Ale will be released in Japan on October 21 for 120 yen (US$1.20) a can, a little late in the game for fall specials (after all, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is already available).

So, tell us, would you try Hot Ginger Ale in a can

Finally, Somebody Made a Giant Penis Pumpkin Carving [Mildly NSFW]

Without being told, it might be a little hard to believe this giant yellow peen is made of pumpkin, the same stuff that goes in your lattes and your cookies and pretty much every fall food item imaginable. But hey, if someone’s ballsy enough to admit he carved a giant yellow penis in the first place, I think it’s safe to assume he’s not lying about anything else either.

Check out the full-res version, courtesy of deviantart user kissel71, below; because believe us, size does matter.
