Pumpkin squashes apple

 Pumpkin and apple are two popular food groups when it comes to autumn, but it’s no secret that once pumpkin hits the stores, it’s officially fall.

  Just look at the aisles of the grocery store. Pumpkin everything. Plus the drink that is loved by most is here: Pumpkin spice. Sure apple macchiatos come out, but it’s not as classic as the pumpkin spice. Not to mention the delicious taste of an iced pumpkin chai.

  There is even more to pumpkin than pumpkin spice: The pumpkin patch. After a fun day of picking pumpkins, the options are endless to use the pumpkin in different ways, such as baking, painting, or decorating.

    According to a school survey, 74% prefer to go to a pumpkin patch than an apple orchard.

  If one is not able to go to the pumpkin patch, there is always the grocery store. Just the sight of pumpkins is pleasing to the eye and excites people for the season.

  Pumpkin carving is just one of many seasonal activities to enjoy, and once finished, it can be used as decoration or baking desserts such as muffins, donuts, cookies, or pies with family and friends. Not to mention one could also use pumpkin seeds, which have more health benefits.

  According to, pumpkin seeds are one of the best natural sources of magnesium, and several other minerals, unsaturated fats, and fiber.

  I mean listen to the lyrics of Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, “Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie” they know what they’re talking about.

  While apples are available year-round, pumpkins are seasonal, which is why it is best to take advantage and celebrate the season.

  After a long day at work, a delightfully lit pumpkin candle with a slice of pumpkin pie sets the mood for fall and a cozy evening.

  According to the Fielder survey, 52.8% prefer pumpkin scents over apple scents.

  Don’t get me wrong, apples are great in general, but pumpkin just has more variety and excites everyone for the fall season.
