As of post time, we are less than 48 hours away from the first day of October, aka Halloween Month. That means we’re celebrating all things pumpkin spice and ignoring all the haters who have made it their life’s mission to suck the fun out of everything. While most of the country lines up for their first Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season, we vegans must look elsewhere to get our fix.

Lucky for us, there is no shortage of that magical squash n’ spice mix in all forms imaginable. So here are five-ish forms of pumpkin spice that I am currently unapologetically celebrating!

1. Pumpkin Spice Protein

If you follow me on Instagram, you knew I was going to go here. Last year I demo’d how I use Conscious Muscle Supplements Pumpkin Spice vegan protein powder (21g protein per serving) to make a supercharged latte. You could also use it in your favorite Protein Mug Cake recipe. Naked Nutrition also has a Pumpkin Spice Protein powder (20g protein per serving) with a super clean ingredient label. Or, if you’re looking for a ready-made protein snack try Aloha’s Pumpkin Spice Protein Bar (14g protein, 15% off with my affiliate link.) I mean, if you’re like me you’re going to power through protein shakes and bars all month anyway, they might as well be on-brand for spooky season.

2. Kiss My Pumpkin Spice

pumpkin spice lip balm

I buy so many Crazy Rumors lip balms that they probably have me on a list of weirdos. But they make the absolute best flavors, and their formula is super moisturizing without being sticky or waxy at all. All of their products are vegan and cruelty free, and their prices and shipping charges are the best in the biz. There’s an entire category of fall flavors, and obviously Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm is the star of the show. Use my affiliate link and go to town!

3. Light a Candle for Pumpkin Spice

There’s no shortage of pumpkin spice candles on the market, but please allow me to make a case for a candle company that is hyper-local to me. We’re talking “I can stick my head out my front door and basically see their store” local. Edgewater Candles is a small businesses that produces super dreamy soy candles right here in my neighborhood. Not only are they some of the longest lasting, and best-smelling candles I’ve ever owned, but they’re also constantly partnering with nonprofits throughout the city to fundraise for some truly important causes. In fact, $6 from each Pumpkin Pie Candle goes to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. If you’ve been waiting for a sign to buy some candles, this is it!

4. Pumpkin Head (and Butt)

Lush’s Halloween drop never lets me down, from alien bubble bars to ghost bath bombs they do spooky-soapy season right. Obviously that includes all things pumpkin and pumpkin spice. I LOL’d at their black, triangle-shaped Pumpkin Eye Mask that literally makes you look like a Jack-O-Lantern when you use it. And, because it’s Lush, it’s made with actual pumpkin puree, which softens and moisturizes skin. Grab one of their Pumpkin Sheet Masks too, if you want to go for full pumpkin head eleganza. And, for your butt, aka the pumpkin in your pants, soak those buns in a cinnamon-spiked Punkin Pumpkin Bath Bomb.

5. Pour One Out for the PSL

Even though I can’t drink Starbucks PSLs, both because the flavor syrup contains dairy, and also because Starbucks’ coffee is an abomination, I respect what they did to elevate this grandma flavor to what’s it’s become. Something people loved, and then hated, and then loved ironically, which eventually reverted back into genuine love. There are so many pumpkin spice-flavored vegan coffee creamers and canned pumpkin spice lattes out there I have nothing to add about any of them. Instead, I will direct your attention to the Queen of Vegan Halloween, Kathy Hester, with this link to her Halloween recipe section, which is filled with pumpkin spice-inspired drink recipes and lots more.
