You're the first guy that I've ever heard say that! Most of us have deep
associations that we acquired at an early age of home and the holiday
season buried deep within our brains. It's the ultimate comfort food!
You better change your name to Scrooge - just kidding. :-)
OTOH, I remember the great pumpkin shortage way back in the year 2011.
In those dark days, we couldn't get no pumpkin pie and had to make do
with pies made from sweet potato flavored like pumpkin pie. The weird
thing is I couldn't tell the difference between the two. My guess is
that you could add cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg to practically
anything and it would taste like pumpkin pie.
