America is obsessed with pumpkin spice. From lattes to muffins, chocolate bars and even lip balm- there is an ever-growing list of products honoring this indulgent flavor.

Now, as fall settles in, the craze is set to go up a notch, especially in California where people place more pumpkin spice orders any other U.S. states, HuffPost reported.

Food delivery service Grubhub conducted a study to determine which parts of America were hit the hardest by pumpkin spice fever. By comparing the number of orders placed in each state, researchers determined that West Coasters were maddest about the flavor, with California, Oregon, Washington, Ohio, and Utah rounding off the top five states with the most pumpkin orders.

There is also a definite spike in orders being placed over specific time periods. October is the peak month, with orders jumping up by 118%, followed by November, which sees orders rise by about 92%, according to Grubhub's survey.

As for which pumpkin spice dishes are the most popular, pancakes are it. According to data gathered between fall 2017 and fall 2018, pumpkin spice pancakes rose by 365% in popularity, followed by pumpkin pie milkshakes, which were 339% more popular. Other popular choices included pumpkin spice cheesecake (329%), pumpkin cupcakes (263%) and pumpkin spice cookies (155%), HuffPost noted.

Will the pumpkin spice crazy continue? Probably but, if any flavor was going to give it a run for its money, caramel apple would be it. The flavor is fast gaining popularity, along with apple cinnamon, pear, and maple. And when Americans have had their sugar fix, dishes like pesto pasta, fried okra and lemongrass soup are the other top foods predicted for fall.
