Everybody talks about how Pumpkin Spice Lattes go on sale way too early. We Coloradans were shocked when we discovered that the fall-inspired drink went on sale on August 1st

Would you believe me if I told you that you can already buy holiday and Christmas beverages in Colorado right now? It is Christmas in August.

You probably don't. But it is true.

I was at King Soopers in Windsor, Colorado, recently to buy some coffee creamer. It was just another normal day. It wouldn't have surprised me if I saw a Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer, but I was very surprised to see a holiday selection. 

Don't believe me? Here is the evidence.

First of all, 2 for $7 is a great deal. I bought way more coffee creamer than I needed. Second of all, are you kidding me?

The flavors that are currently available in Colorado...

Frosted Gingerbread: This flavor is relatively new, and coffee lovers go crazy over it. In 2022, people entered to win just for a chance to buy a bottle of it.

Brown Butter: I can not make fun of this coffee creamer. It sounds delicious. This gluten-free option sounds like a milkshake in the morning. 

One review on Target's website says:

Best creamer ever. I can't believe it's not available year-round. Who made that stupid decision?? Target- make them sell this all year!! - Ingrid


Peppermint Mocha: This coffee creamer is a classic. I would not drink this in August, but I will drink it by the gallons in December. 

Feel free to call me a Grinch.

I think having Christmas items in stores in August diminishes the holiday spirit. The holidays are meant to be a special time, and items like Christmas coffee creamer should be reserved for a certain window.

What is next? Having egg nog on the beach?
