While the term brings up fond memories of Thanksgiving, the truth is that this concoction is the five spices that are added to pumpkin and other ingredients to make the pie.

The five spices found in Pumpkin Pie Spice are:

  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Nutmeg or Mace
  • Cloves
  • Allspice

So, when you fall prey to that latte, yogurt, cookie or other item riding on the coat tails of this current marketing mania, know that you could do the same with a shake or two of items from most kitchen spice racks.
