Pumpkin or Pecan: What Is The Best Flavor For Fall?

Pumpkin or Pecan: 
What is the Best Flavor for Fall?


Imagine yourself in this scenario: You’re at a holiday shindig. You’ve just eaten a terrific meal surrounded by family and friends. Ambling over to the dessert table, you begin to decide between the possible options from which to choose. You could have a slice of something pumpkin, like pumpkin cake or pumpkin cheesecake, or you could have a slice of pie, pecan, fudge, or fudge pecan. Which dessert do you put on your plate?


To help yourself decide, a little voice in your head poses the question, “Which fall flavor reigns supreme - pumpkin or pecan?” 


Pumpkin or Pecan?.... Pumpkin or Pecan?....


What a tricky question. Both are amazing fall flavors but deciding which is the better of the two is like trying to pin down your all-time favorite movie. It’s totally based on the mood you’re in, right?! I mean either way you choose, you’ll be walking away with a delicious dessert. So really there’s no way to go wrong. But for some reason, no other decision in your life has ever felt this high stakes. Heck! Naming your first child was less stressful!


As sudden gurgling noise shakes your concentration as you realize your stomach is growling impatiently. “That’s it!” You think. “A decision MUST be made!...” and yet the dessert server in your hand remains motionless, suspended in midair, hovering above all your options.


Believe it or not, this kind of indecisiveness when choosing between Collin Street Bakery desserts is an actual medical condition commonly referred to as ‘Cant-pick-a-dessert-itus’ sometimes referred to as ‘I-want-a-bite-of-each-phobia.’


Common symptoms of this condition include envious glances at others’ plates, furrowed brows when glancing at your own plate, and fear of an unsatisfied sweet tooth. If this condition is not cured it can progress to the most severe symptom, dessert regret.


Luckily for you, there are two tried and true cures for this ailment. The first treatment involves reading the delicious descriptions of each dessert so a fully informed dessert decision can be made, thereby alleviating dessert regret. So here we go….
