You can't mark yourself "safe" from pumpkin spice season just yet.

Though you probably weren't ready to contemplate the plethora of pumpkin spice products on the market when they first started surfacing back in August, we're currently in the thick of pumpkin season. By now, you've probably thought you've seen it all: pumpkin spice hot cocoa, pumpkin spice seltzer, the list goes on. 

I'd bet you never expected to see pumpkin pie flavored milk, though. Well, thanks to the handiwork of @JunkFoodintheTrunk3, here it is. 

Yup, that's a bottle of limited edition Pumpkin Pie Milk from Rutter's, a chain of mid-Atlantic convenience stores with their own extensive dairy operation. They're not afraid of getting crazy with milk flavors, at least if the prior existence of their Chocolate Peanut Butter Milk is any indication. 

Though there's no indication that Pumpkin Pie Milk comes from orange cows (or cows fed a diet of pumpkins, for that matter), there's a good chance that this features the perfect blend of pumpkin spices you'd come to expect from a pie, except with an added dairy element. If there was ever a fall-themed milk, this would probably be it. 

While @JunkFoodintheTrunke3 was too much of a coward to taste the forbidden Pumpkin Milk, those lucky enough to find themselves in central Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia can try it for themselves, presumably until it makes way for whatever kooky holiday-themed milk (Peppermint? Gingerbread?) that Rutter's might be working on. At the very least, it'd be worth seeing what it's like to wash down your Thanksgiving dessert with this stuff. It could be the meta experience your big November meal has been missing.
