5 Ideas for Boosting Fall Flavor with Pumpkin Pie Spice


5 Ideas for Boosting Fall Flavor with Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pumpkins and pumpkin pie are trademark sights and smells of fall. The flavors and aroma of something prepared with pumpkin pie spice (a combo of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves) can instantly add a comforting flavor of fall to meals and snacks. In general, we’re big fans of using herbs and spices to add flavor to foods, and they often come with nutrition perks too! You can instantly turn your year-round recipes into fall specialties with the simple addition of pumpkin pie spice.

Here are some of our favorite (and super easy) ways to use pumpkin pie spice.

1. Batter up: Add about 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice per 1/2 cup of pancake or waffle batter. Need a good and healthy pancake recipe? Try this trail mix pancake recipe, but add in pumpkin pie spice, substitute the nuts with pumpkin seeds, and leave out the berries for truly fall inspired pancakes. Alternatively, try adding pumpkin pie spice to your regular French toast recipe.

2. Pumpkin spiced popcorn: Spray air-popped popcorn with canola or olive oil (or cooking spray), then immediately toss with a pinch of brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and a dash of salt for a delicious popcorn snack.

3. Add to roasted winter veggies: Toss winter vegetables such as butternut squash, acorn squash, or carrots with oil, salt, and pumpkin pie spice before roasting for a holiday-inspired side dish.

4. Add to your morning brew: Sprinkling pumpkin pie spice into your coffee grounds before you brew allows you to create your own seasonal cup of Joe!

5. Pumpkin pie smoothie: Creamy and satisfying, this smoothie incorporates pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, and is the perfect way to start a fall day in a healthy way.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x
Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
