Fall is in the air, even if it isn't quite time to put away the shorts and flip flops. No one is more in the spirit of autumn right now than Canada's favorite purveyor of coffee, donuts, and Beyond Meat burgers. Tim Hortons pumpkin spice mania is already in full swing, with a full line of drinks and baked goods featuring the flavors that have become so associated with a vegetable that no one would ever actually eat otherwise.

Take your pick: do you want a pumpkin spice iced capp, tea, latte, tea latte, donut, muffin, or Timbit? The choices are endless! Okay, those are actually the only choices, but still! It would be hard to pick just one, wouldn't it?

Well, don't be so sure. As with all things Tim Hortons, it's hard to tell whether people really love the introduction of all the pumpkin spice food and drink, or if they absolutely hate it. There are those who feel like they've waited an eternity for the returning and new line of pumpkin spice products and can finally enjoy them again.

For all of the love that the fall menu is getting, there are also plenty of Canadians who are just shaking their heads at Tim Hortons and muttering "too soon." In their defense, pumpkin spice season, much like the Christmas season, does seem to start earlier every year. Several people had to point out that Labour Day is usually considered the acceptable cutoff day for advertising anything pumpkin spiced.

And on the other end of the spectrum, people shared their complete and utter disgust at anything pumpkin-spiced, particularly if it comes from Tim Hortons.

Of course, it wouldn't be a story about how people are reacting to Tim Hortons without also pointing out some of their orders that were completely botched.

Whether you love it or hate it, pumpkin spice season is officially in full swing. It may still be warm for a few more weeks, but at least you can feel like you're taking a bite (or a sip) out of fall.
