Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Pumpkin - autumn's bacon. Until December, when peppermint becomes winter's bacon. Why has nobody successfully combined pumpkin and peppermint yet?

I KNEW "Stop it!" would be the top answer. That's just the way the Woot audience is. We buck trends and tend to be anti-everything....unless it involves Star Wars.

I am one of the "Stop it!" votes. To elaborate, I really want to like pumpkin things. Unfortunately, they all fail pretty miserably. Pumpkin beer never tastes quite right. Most pumpkin pies have way too much spice. Pumpkin spice lattes, well, there's just way too much of something(s) I don't like in it either. The fact we are bombarded with pumpkin as early as July (that's when i found pumpkin beers prominently displayed at the store this year) is, in my opinion, just as bad as Christmas merchandising before Halloween.

Lakefront Brewing Pumpkin Ale. So far the only one with enough pumpkin flavor I have had and not super "spicey" so you can actually drink a few without getting sick of the taste! Mmmm tasty, tasty beer. Wait what time is it?

Actually the "Yeas" are leading the "Nays" currently 59% to 41% so no trend bucking going on here at Woot!

Bacon is every season's bacon.

Pumpkins being seasonal, we get 3 months of the year where they're just jammed down our throats. Ironically, if science invents year 'round pumpkins we'd probably be less bombarded.

Bacon had already become the bacon of bacon. For the next 6 weeks, pumpkin is the bacon of bacon's bacon. I think.

You can buy canned pumpkin year 'round. If pumpkin were bacon (and I do love pumpkin), people would be making pumpkin pies in May. But they ain't.

I don't used canned pumpkin seeing as most canned pumpkin is actually butternut squash. I make my own pie and pastry fillings from scratch. A couple of bad things come of that.

1. It takes forever.
2. You will never want to buy premade pumpkin anything from the store.
