Have you heard about Pumpkin Spiced Cheerios for sale here in Central New York?

I mean it's bad enough when the DIY stores put snow blowers out at the end of August or the first week in September. We know that we'll get snow but just don't rush it any faster. I know about now you are looking at the Cheerios box and thinking OK what do Cheerios have to do with do it yourself?

Well, it seems as if we are once again rushing the season, I mean do we really need another version of a holiday item? There seems to be a rumor floating around that Cheerios will be coming out with a Pumpkin Spice version for the holidays, really?.  Yup, you heard me right. I thought this seems just a bit strange and can't possibly be true. So I set out to check with our local grocery store thinking they will know if this is really just a rumor.

I found the customer service desk with a nice young woman by the name of Sally. I said to Sally this will seem like a strange question but there is a rumor that Cheerios will come out with a Pumpkin Spice version for the holidays. Sally's response was to smile and say our next inventory delivery is in 2 weeks.

It would appear this is in the works for the next delivery that falls close to the beginning of October and that magic window for all things Christmas and Thanksgiving. Have a great holiday season this year, Oh yea the Christmas trees just went up in the stores but you knew that already.
