complete overkill makes it America.
I love the fall; except for the going back to school part. Even though I don’t go to school anymore, I’m scarred from years of going to that place. Every end of August I get some turbo anxiety realizing freedom is a lie, and the goverment is corrupt. Then you start seeing tv commercials- the ones with the parents smiling and laughing, telling you to go buy some new school supplies. Altho that is the best part. Being like, fuck you school and the man; if you’re making me go back to prison, aka “educational system” called school, I’m sure as hell going to drop some major coin on book socks and other rad educational paraphernalia. DAMN RIGHT I NEED THAT

But the greatest thing about the fall is everything becomes pumpkin flavor. We used to keep it classy and fun. There was pumpkin pie, and then a pumpkin spice latte. And that was it. But at some point around 2010 the corporate ad guys got wise and started making everything pumpkin. I don’t mind bc pumpkin is the mack daddy of all flavors, ask anyone..
I mean it’s not america if we don’t completely overdo something to the point of complete destruction/ borderline disgust. I do feel the need to try anything pumpkin that I could ever come by. Im just waiting for that pumpkin spice gum. YO @JUICYJUICE ya hear?
You can only imagine my supreme elation when Stumptown in the arts district had a pumpkin cheese danish. Realize fully this isn’t the kind of danish you would just see in a case at au bon pain, these are architecturally sound pastries #nextlevel.
You do remember the total meltdown one of their scones caused me, right
? It was easily one of the single best pastries I’ve ever had. I wasn’t ready- I thought I was just ordering a scone. This danish was so light, and crisp, and buttery. It just couldn’t be any more perfect. The bottom was almost caramelized and the pumpkin was JUST the right amount of sweet. SO HARD TO GET RIGHT. Too sweet and it’s just overbearing. Not sweet enough and it tastes like a squash.
No one wants squash pastries bruh. No one.
The pastry provider, sugarbloom
at this stumptown is easily one of my favorites- and this pumpkin danish is a must try.
