Squashtober Spice Countdown Day 8 & 9: Pumpkin Spice Bagel & Cream Cheese

Well I'm squeezing two days together again, but this time it was intentional. Some food are meant to go together! Like peanut butter and jelly. Or salt and pepper. Or, you know... bagels and cream cheese.


The bagels:

Pretty good. Not such a fan of the fact that they have little bits of smashed pumpkin in them, like raisins in raisin bread. But otherwise, a nice pumpkin-y flavor.

The cream cheese:

Do you have a problem eating foods that are a different color than what you're used to? Perhaps like that dark period in the early 2000s when somebody thought it was a good idea to create green ketchup.

Who approved this? WHO?! Probably the same person who invented Wow! chips. The early 2000s were a simpler time. A time of LiveJournal and clever away messages on AIM that incorporated Hoobastank lyrics.

All of this to say: The cream cheese is orange.

But if you can get over that, it's good! Perhaps overwhelming when pumpkin cream cheese is spread on a pumpkin bagel (Did I learn nothing from dipping pumpkin Milano cookies into pumpkin greek yogurt?)

Overall thoughts: Just eat the pumpkin bagel with butter on it, or plain cream cheese. And put the pumpkin cream cheese on a plain bagel. You probably would have already done that without my advice. But I had to try! I suffer for my art, you know.
Grade: B+
Similarity to raisin bagel: High.
