Did you ever wonder how “pumpkin spice” flavoring got its name, especially since it doesn’t contain any . . . pumpkin?
The flavor of “pumpkin spice” is a sweeter version of the spices you often find in—surprise!—pumpkin pie: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and sometimes clove. Pumpkin itself doesn’t have a very strong flavor. It tastes similar to other winter squashes, such as butternut squash or acorn squash.
