Pumpkin Spice Pizza Is Real and Jimmy Kimmel's Had Enough

By    |   Thursday, 28 September 2017 04:32 PM

The unveiling of pumpkin spice pizza by a national chain prompted Jimmy Kimmel to address the country’s obsession with pumpkin-flavored items on his program Wednesday night.

Villa Italian Kitchen began serving the fall-flavored pizza on Sept. 22, calling it "the first ever pumpkin spice pizza," NJ.com reported. The chain began in New Jersey but has spread to locations in most U.S. states and even some international locations.

The release was apparently the straw that broke the camel’s back where Kimmel was concerned.

Kimmel started his “frank discussion” with viewers by asking them to “call your congress people and tell them to put a stop” to the “pumpkin spicing of America.”

After listing various foods containing the flavor, Kimmel joked, “We even have a pumpkin spice president for God’s sake. It’s too much.”

Kimmel was then confronted with “Pump Daddy,” a giant jack-o’-lantern smoking a cinnamon stick cigar that threatened to take over the world. The evil pumpkin threatened to flavor even more foods, saying, “I’m working on pumpkin spice French fries, pumpkin spice bacon, pumpkin spice pickles, pumpkin spice hot pockets.

“Pumpkin spice underpants, pumpkin spice Lego Batman, pumpkin spice Q-tips, pumpkin spice Prilosec, pumpkin spice security guards,” the creature went on, expanding from food items to nonedible creations.

Luckily for Kimmel, Pump Daddy’s girlfriend carried him off before he could make good on his threats, but the segment sparked a spirited Twitter conversation about whether there could be too much pumpkin spice merchandise in the world.
