    They’ve been trying to pull the wool over our eyes for years. One example – we were told ( when I was little) that brown sugar was better for you than white sugar. Ok, so we bought it – for a while. And then…the truth came out.

      I’m more annoyed with the overuse of the concept than the item itself…I never said I didn’t eat it myself…in fact, it was a salted caramel dark chocolate ghiradelli bar that inspired me (half way down my gullet)

  2. Thanks for telling it like it is. I hate anything that makes my body smell like food, so I’m definitely not a fan of caramel, pumpkin or even chocolate scented lotions, shampoos, soaps etc. Eeek! Gotta hand it to capitalism / commercialism on going overboard. I love Fall and it’s my favorite season but I could never understand why everything has to smell like pumpkin or cinnamon. *sigh*

  3. Obnoxious or not, I am hooked! Haha. The only thing I ever resisted (that was an actual food) was maple beef jerky. That one went too far for me. Pumpkin spice on the other hand…

  4. I once bought a body lotion scented like a lemon cookie. Worst. Decision. Ever. It smelled good in the store, but I’d smelled so many scented lotions at that point I’d burned the inside of my nose.

  5. I’ll be honest, I’ve never tried salted caramel anything and I dislike Pumpkin Spice. Does that make me a monster? lol Your post has now made me want to go get some Salted caramel ice cream.

    I love them. Especially the salted caramel from Cacao in Atlanta. My husband got me hooked on them a couple of years ago.

  7. I am first in line to make fun of the pumpkin spice worshipers but I have to tell you, I love ANYTHING salted caramel. I even go so far as to say “I heart it” and I am generally not that cheesy. Now I want some!

      I can’t say I don’t appreciate certain SC items, but I think it is a bit over the top and silly to throw it in front of every possible sweet.

  8. Ha! This kills me. I was just thinking about how pumpkin spice is so NOT trendy anymore, but rather the mocking of it has become trendy and yet… when I saw pumpkin Noosa yogurt at the grocery store, I decided I had to try it. I know it’s not cool anymore, but it was like a freaking miracle in my mouth. It’s the most delicious thing ever, and I love making overnight oatmeal with it. OK, now off to hit those Pinterest boards! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      You are falling victim to the salt cubes! Even though I am self aware of the power of salted caramel, it doesn’t mean I don’t fall victim to it myself sometimes.

  9. This was a riot. I can’t believe I’ve been falling for this salted caramel tyranny for so long. Now that I know better, I feel it is my obligation to fight the power. Yet it is so, so very tasty…
