The word "pumpkin" showed up for the first time in the fairy tale Cinderella. Whether you love it or hate it, you can't deny that it's a staple of autumn in America.
“Pumpkin spice” was a thing well before Starbucks. According to Chicagoist, spice companies like McCormick started bundling common spices used in pumpkin pie as “pumpkin pie spice” in the 1950s. Pumpkin pies predated the premade spice by centuries.
