A quick google search for Pumpkin Spice Challah yields 800,000 results, including delectable versions from the queen of breads Shannon Sarna, Jewlish, Leah Koenig and Tori Avey. But despite how delicious they all look, the Forward staff is divided.
Deputy Culture Editor Talya Zax and Deputy Digital Director Jeff Boxer were both ambivalent about pumpkin spice challah, saying they’d try it but that they had no strong feelings either way.
Deputy News Editor Aiden Pink threw a wrench in the whole concept by pointing out that most pumpkin sold in the grocery store isn’t even pumpkin, really, and called pumpkin spice “fake news.”
Personally, I’m going to make some for Shabbat this week and let my guests be the judge.
