Autumn is near and that means cooler weather and holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. We are always fans of people getting into the holiday spirit and one of those ways is by eating and drinking fun, weird, surprising foods that only seem right in the fall months. On a scale of “that is crazy”  to “that sounds awesome” here is a list of some of the drinks and foods you can try for yourself.

Apple Smoked Cheese
Red Apple Cheese in Owen will provide you your autumnal Wisconsin necessity with a variety of apple-flavored cheddars, goudas and more. This is why we live in Wisconsin, people.

Pumpkin Beer
Pumpkin beer isn’t limited to Wisconsin, but, frankly, why would you drink beer from any other state? You can get the Whole Hog from Point Brewery or the Pumpkin Lager from Lakefront or any other number of deliciously spooky beers.

Apple Bratwursts
The art of the bratwurst has been relatively unchanged for years, with varieties generally consisting of beer or no beer, but lately people have been getting pretty crazy with their ‘wurst, including a number of apple bratwurst. This writer can attest it is just as good as your tastebuds think it will be.

Looking for something a little crazier?

Pumpkin Kit-Kat: Could be fun to give those out to trick-or-treaters. They won’t suspect a thing.

Pumpkin Pie Spice Pringles: Trying to fit your hand into one of these contraptions might make you feel like an inadequate human being, but it will all be worth it for these limited edition potato chips.

Jones Soda Holiday Pack:  Flavors include Turkey and Gravy and Pumpkin Pie. You can find some of these flavors on Amazon but honestly, Turkey and Gravy you guys. Why?

Danielle Crunchy Pumpkin chips: They really are making chips out of everything now, aren’t they?
