So I am curious if this was ever on the shelf here in Amarillo? I was shopping in Target by my daughter's house in Dallas. She found this Pumpkin Spice Ramen Noodles. When she mentioned it at first I thought she was joking.

I turned the cart around to see what she was talking about. Yep and it wasn't even down an aisle. Nope they moved it to an end cap so everyone would see it. Cup Noodles Pumpkin Spice Ramen Noodles. It was a thing.

So my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to buy it. I thought it would be horrible. Don't get me wrong here. I was hoping I could at least eat the cup of noodles without wasting the little bit of money I spent on it. I mean I just thought it might not be that bad.

What got me is that they had the suggestion to add whipped cream to it before I ate it. So I had to run to the store to buy a can. I knew this was going to be a bad idea.

The things I do for my job. So I waited until over the weekend. I even waited until I was hungry yesterday. I thought that might make it taste just a little bit better. Do you think that maybe that was the best of ideas? Do you think I ate more than a couple bites?

Nope after I filmed the video I promptly not only dumped the cup down the sink. I also rinsed out the cup so I could get the smell out of the house. I survived eating pumpkin Spam a couple years ago.

At least that wasn't too bad. Did you try the pumpkin spice ramen? I have to know.
