Fall is here! The autumnal equinox, also known as the September or fall equinox, has arrived signaling the end of summer and the start of the fall season.

The days get shorter and the temps may drop, but fall brings some of our favorite things – turning leaves, apple cider, comfy sweaters, and one of our all-time favorites – Pumpkins!

Whether you like your pumpkin in pies, muffins, soups, or lattes, there is no question that pumpkin has risen into the upper echelons of delectable fruits. You read that right. The pumpkin is a fruit and not a vegetable.

Pumpkin Fact: There are over 1.5 billion pounds of pumpkin sold every year – that is a lot of pumpkins! Not surprisingly, most of those pumpkins are sold in September and October.

If you are a pumpkin connoisseur, we have the perfect addition to your pumpkin repertoire – our holiday fall pumpkin dip. Our pumpkin dip pairs perfectly with our golden brown, crunchy on the outside and perfectly fluffy on the inside, Boardwalk Zeppoles.
