Odwalla pumpkin super protein

We’re so deep into pumpkin season (which truthfully runs from oct-nov) that this is almost too late, but it was purchased just last wk at the local smkt, so it’s still out there, somewhere. It has a couplo characteristics that make it A+ for NYCE: 1. it’s limited edition 2. it falls into that smoothie-protein-bar-meal-in-a-swallow category that fascinates some of us 3. pumpkin. Enough fanfare: limited edition Odwalla pumpkin super protein drink. Would you ever think pumpkin would make for a smoothie flavor? ("pumpkin puree" is like the 5th ingred; it was a bit chalky, tho not in a deal-breaking way.) Does this not seem like a reflection of the starbucks influence, specifically their recent pumpkin spice latte? Then again, doesn't everything

I love the glorious morning light in the picture. It's very dramatic and perfect for orange juice... i mean pumpkin juice. But couldn't you have taken the picture BEFORE drinking it?

If this tastes as "good" as some of Odwalla's other drinks -- SuperProtein Vanilla Almond springs to mind -- I will gratefully take a pass.

I wonder if there's a P-Monster in their future.

The recent weather here and up north, plus the plethora of orange squash dicotomies thrown about, brings this to mind...

"When the frost is on the pumpkin, that's the time for..."


The first person to finish the sentence correctly gets an honourary 'Canadian drinking rhyme' gold star. You are now free to search about the Internet...

BK, i believe that doing a google search would be "cheating". so i'm going to say that when the frost is on the pumpkin, that's the time for PIES. cuz this here izza food-themed blog. that's my guess. when the pumpkins turns frosty, you makes pies out of 'em

There are two versions, one of which I will save for personal chat.

The version that fits here is: That's the time for drinkin' somethin.'

Because the frost is on the pumpkin damn near 9 months a year up there, it's ALWAYS time for another drink... ;-)
