Great Pumpkin Search 2012: Start!

Looks like we’re launching the Great Pumpkin search a little early this year.

Seems like many stores are already carrying their pumpkin delights and I’m not about to miss out on the fun 😉

So to begin this years Great Pumpkin Search, I present you with:

pumpkin muffin from barnes and noble

A Pumpkin Muffin from Barnes & Nobel Cafe!!

I was enjoying some studying/talking time with a friend just yesterday at Barnes and Noble when I went to the cafe for a hot tea. To my surprise I spied a suspiciously deliciously looking muffin in the pastry cooler.

It was unmarked.

What caught my attention was the seeds which, bore an uncanny resemblance to shelled pumpkin seeds. Not wanting to get my hopes up I decided to ask the barista what kind of muffin it was. To my utter delight she said the one word I needed wanted to hear- “Pumpkin.”


I snagged one up without a second thought and shortly after was savoring each moist pumpkiny bite. It was delish! Very moist, with just a hint of pumpkin spice and a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds for crunch.

I highly recommend this muffin for anyone who happens to be hanging out in the bookstore this pumpkin season. Not sure if all Barnes and Nobles are carrying these tasty bites yet, but I am certain they will be available very very soon.

Have you spotted any new pumpkin treats in the market? Feel free to comment with your finds!

~ May the Great Pumpkin Search of 2012 Commence!!
