The Dime Roll: Pumpkin Spicing Our Way Into Fall

September 29, 2017

It's no secret that we millennials love our pumpkin spice, well, anything. We love it so much, in fact, that this week on The Dime, we're taking a closer look at our great country's obsession with this autumn-specific flavor and scent. A little teaser: Did you know that pumpkin spice's origins can be traced back to 1796?! One might say that pumpkin spice is as American as...apple pie. Read on...

But, what might be a bit of a secret (until now, anyway), is the fact that millennials actually care quite a bit about job—and retirement—security. It's true: people who study such things (and many people do), have confirmed it. So, next time you're getting an earful about your generation's flightly, commitment-phobic tendencies, kindly point him or her right here. BOOM. 

Are you a diehard Dimer? If so, we'd love for you to pass us along to your friends and family (dogs and grandmas included). We also love hearing from our readers, so hit us up on Facebook and Twitter if you've got something to share. (C'mon...you know you want to.)
