I’m not anti-Pumpkin Spice. I’ve tasted the Starbucks latte. It’s better than good. What I am, however, is exhausted by the never-ending stream of pumpkin spice products on the market.

Don’t believe me that it’s gone too far? Hefty is now making garbage bags that smell like a teeming PSL. But honestly, anything is better than your garbage actually spelling like garbage, so we’ll take it.

On September 30, fans can head to and purchase the limited edition scented bags.

“At this point, pumpkin spice is a cultural phenomenon. We wanted to combine that beloved scent with the strength, odour-control, and reliability consumers know and love from Hefty for a truly unexpected and delightful fall offering,” Senior Brand Manager for Reynolds Consumer Products Colleen Peters said in a press release. “These limited-time-offer trash bags will let pumpkin lovers everywhere indulge in the fall scent they love, while Hefty’s® odour-control technology will keep their homes smelling clean.”

The Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Ultra Strong Trash Bags are priced like the regular Ultra Strong variety (at just $5.95) and sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
