Pumpkin Summary  Notes :

 As always keep  make sure you check all ingredients of the products to see if they meet your standers and or needs. The following products where picks due to there TRue Taste of Pumpkin . Which I find hard to get as many products like theses are filled with Artificial  flavor and coloring.  So these where the ones that I found that where reason in Price but also had better ingredients compared to other Pumpkin products.

I hope you enjoy this Pumpkin Post 🙂

( all product where bought with my own money and my review are only honest thoughts of what I think )
