Then thanks for thy present! none sweeter or better
E'er smoked from an oven or circled a platter!
Fairer hands never wrought at a pastry more fine,
Brighter eyes never watched o'er its baking, than thine!
And the prayer, which my mouth is too full to express,
Swells my heart that thy shadow may never be less,
That the days of thy lot may be lengthened below,
And the fame of thy worth like a pumpkin-vine grow,
And thy life be as sweet, and its last sunset sky
Golden-tinted and fair as thy own Pumpkin Pie!
- John Greenleaf Whittier
excerpt from The Pumpkin
Now that I have literally waxed poetic about pumpkins and your eyes have beheld the fulsome pumpkin Beezy order I have in possession, let us commence with the details.
Pumpkin Milkshake- A little plastic smelling to my nose but mostly vanilla when I get beyond that. It might be nice once melted, so with holding firm judgement.
Pumpkin Caramel Swirl- A vibrant pumpkin and soft spice scent that suggests at a citrusy top note. Candy sweet caramel included.
Pumpkin Gingerbread- Deeply spiced pumpkin gingerbread with salted butter pats nestled in the middle of each slice.
Gingerbread Applesauce- Gingerbread baked in smoky stone hearth with a schmear of homemade apple butter.
Amish Quilt- The queen mother of spice. Cinnamon that licks burning flames around the edges of your nostrils. Not dry or dusty at all but rich with cinnamon oil and other cupboard spices.
Apple Clove Butter- I think you guys know how I feel about this one. If not.... it is LOVE.
Caramel Apple Butter- In fact, my deep love of Apple Clove Butter (thanks to Lauren at LoloLovesScents) I wanted to try this one out too. It is mostly a toffee caramel apple. Not a watery Macintosh apple necessarily, but a fat red apple for sure.
Cinnamon French Toast- Heavily spiced bakery (YUM) that reminds me of Rosegirls Streuselkuchen and Dunk My Donuts. Super duper good.
The deets: I ordered these July 1st and they just arrived last week. Long TAT for sure. Amish Quilt and Pumpkin Gingerbread were on clearance for $1.35 and the rest were $1.85 each. Shipping was $6.80 and totally reasonable. Beezy throws like a heavy weight boxer and does wax really well. My standouts from this order are: Apple Clove Butter, Amish Quilt, Cinnamon French Toast and Pumpkin Caramel Swirl.
Did you Beezy recently? Whatcha get?
