I always associate Thanksgiving with pumpkin, because of course who doesn’t have pumpkin pie? Actually, this year we’re not having pumpkin pie, so what does that make me? A deviant, I suppose. Anyway, I made cream cheese pie today, and I also bought a cranberry-apple pie from New Seasons Market (the market where the meat counter guy called me miss. Can I also tell you that today at Skyline Burger the young waiter, who resembled John Cusack, called me miss! Is this a trend? One can only hope). Blah blah blah. So there’s no pumpkin pie, but allow me to share with you some pumpkin-flavored Kit Kats from Japan.
Yeah, okay, so they were intended for Halloween, but whatever, the Thanksgiving sentiment is there.
Happy Thanksgiving/Turkey/Tofurkey/Whatever to all of you!
Share, nothing, I’m taking some of them!
No pumpkin pie here either – I’m baking a blueberry one as I type. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
Strange Kitkat, but we must taste it 😉
Interesting. I wonder how pumpkin flavored candy tastes. I had some pumpkin fudge recently and it wasn’t all that. Personally I hate pie but I love pumpkin bread, cake or cookies!
Ohmygosh, I want that Pumpkin Kit Kat! Right now!
Now I want to go to Skyline Burger (can’t resist a John Cusack look-a-like)!
mmmmm pumpkin pie. 😉 I’m super curious about the kitkats, but I think it’s the Japaneseness of them more than anything. It seems like I’ll try anything if it’s got that foreign touch, whereas if it’s, like, a new Snickers? what ev er!
happy day after!
So did you like them? Anjali got me excited about them, but, unfortunately I found them to be one of the more disappointing flavors KitKat has made. So sad! Although I just had the pumpkin KitKat balls. Maybe the wafer-style is better. The kuri ones looked good, but I didn’t want to spend 300-400 yen and they aren’t being sold any more. Did you pick up any Hokkaido-bean-flavored ones (北海道小豆）? They’re… interesting.
I used to be a pumpkin pie person, until my family discovered something even better– pumpkin cheesecake. Now pumpkin pie just seems like a lump of squash that I can never really go back to.
I don’t want to burst your bubble, but around here, the older you are, the more careful they are to call you ‘miss’. Think ‘Miss Brooke Astor’.
But I enjoy it anyway, and hate when some young new arrival calls me ‘ma’am’.
Non-Ma’am in NYC
mmmm – love kit kats and pumpkin! They must be deelish!
