I don't know how I feel about this article because ads from Chitka kept blocking it!

For those of you who love pumpkin spice coffees Tim Hortons has sugar free flavor shots. Right now they have pumpkin spice. They only have 4 calories per shot. I usually get two. They don't add sweetness but they do add nice flavor. 2 shots is good for a large or below.

These all seem like no-brainers, but I enjoyed the slight humor throughout the article (esp the subtitle: Be afraid of these calorie monsters).

I'm reading this article on October 17 so it is good timing since I just bought my halloween trick or treats and need to control myself to not "dip in".

Good read....it's amazing how something so small and innocent can be so "tricky"! Thanks for the great info!

I like the idea of mixing in a few candy corn with trail mix. I think I'll try that. I also am going to peruse Sparkrecipes for some pumpkin use ideas. Healthier ones, that is.

Really? Be afraid of food is really the message you want to send here? The article was good but the message of the subtitle a little unhealthy, in my opinion.

Someone at work must already have read this article! At a recent training, she combined granola, baby chocolate chips, craisins and a few candy corn. It was enough to get the taste but not enough to pack too much of a calorie wallop.

I found a delicious low-cal recipe for a pumpkin spice latte at www.coffeesage.com. You warm your milk (about 1/2-1 cup skim) and add a Tablespoon of Pumpkin Puree along with a sprinkle of nutmeg and cinnamon. I add a spoonful of sugar instead of the pumpkin syrup and just regular strongly brewed coffee. A delicous treat, with much fewer calories! Plus the one I got at Starbucks didn't taste nearly as good as the homemade one and its much lighter on your wallet too!

I found some pumpkin/pumpkin-spice flavored coffee I enjoy w/ sugar-free creamer...a good, less "damaging" alternative for me.

Good article. Luckily I don't like most of these things except chocolate! It's better to eat a nice, fresh apple than one small candy bar.
