I hit up Costco (my new favorite place on earth) for a case of pumpkin, I got about 12 cans for $9 so you can believe it’s showing up in everything. It’s a great source of Vitamin A, is low Calorie, a great substitute for fat, pretty bland if you ask me so you can actually mix a can into a box of brownie mix for a virtually fat-free brownie, and it’s all over Pinterest.
