Pumpkin butter and Krusteaz pumpkin spice pancakes.

It is officially pumpkin spice season and this year looks to be bigger and spicier than ever. Last year, Americans spent more than $236 million on pumpkin-spice-flavored items, a 47% increase over the previous five years. It seems we just can’t get enough of the official flavor of fall.

Pumpkin spice is a relatively simple blend of flavors—cinnamon with clove, ginger, nutmeg and sometimes allspice—so why do we love it so much?

“For the average American, it triggers nostalgia and evokes holiday seasons where people get together and connect with loved ones,” Marie Wright, the chief global flavorist at ADM, told Forbes. “These flavors and aromas trigger memories of family events and being around people, something we have all been missing even more during the pandemic. From a scientific perspective, this happens in the same part of the brain where emotions and memories are provoked.”

Now the big question is: Have you stocked up on your pumpkin spice for this season? Here are 11 items you can get next-day from Amazon that’ll give you all the fall feels.

Howie Hua shares helpful math tips and tricks on social media.

Math is weird.

On the one hand, it's consistent—the solutions to basic math problems are the same in every country in the world. On the other hand, there are multiple strategies to get to those solutions, and it seems like people are still coming up with new ones (much to the chagrin of parents whose kids need help with homework using methods they've never learned).

Math professor Howie Hua shares math strategies that make math easier on social media, and his videos are fascinating. Hua, who teaches math to future elementary school teachers at Fresno State, demonstrates all kinds of mental math tricks that feel like magic when you try them.

Kathy Najimy’s 1993 interview for 'Hocus Pocus' is going viral for the sweetest reason

'I just feel supportive of all groups, whether they’re women’s groups or gay groups or racial groups, and I know that there are groups of witches out there.'

Kathy Najimy's 1993 interview for "Hocus Pocus" is going viral.

If you grew up in the '90s, chances are you watched the original "Hocus Pocus" and declared yourself one of the three Sanderson sisters. But did you know that Kathy Najimy was committed to being respectful of practicing witches when she first read the script for the movie in the early '90s? Me either. A resurfaced video of Najimy has recently gone viral on TikTok showing an interview by Katie Couric on the "Today" show. In the video, Najimy expresses the importance of being respectful of other people, cultures and things she may not understand, including practicing witches.
