At just over two centuries old, pumpkin spice may have finally jumped the shark.

It wasn’t the earlier and earlier appearing PSLs.

This latest pumpkin spice development yields more questions than answers. While we’re off contemplating the future of the overexposed squash seasoning, take a look at this week’s news, and newest jobs.
