You don't have to wait until Halloween or Thanksgiving to enjoy pumpkin-flavored treats. They're everywhere! Even though it's still September, you can find pumpkin-flavored beverages ranging from spiced lattes to beer—plus pumpkin pie vodka and Kaluha Pumpkin Spice.

In case you missed it in TIME magazine, the latest autumn-inspired food item is pumpkin spice M&M's.

For those looking for something a little more traditional to sink their teeth into, Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch blogger Carol Woelfel Thames shared a recipe in her blog for pumpkin muffins swirled with cheesecake filling and topped with streusel. She used the muffins to entice her husband: "Honey, Quit Yelling at the Football Game and Try This Muffin Recipe."
