I don't mind the pumpkin spice taste. Although there are squillions (well, nearly) of recipes to make your own, I thought I would try a ready-made one so brought a little box back from Canada with me. Brand is Club House, ingredients are listed as cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and it smells good.
I usually drink my coffee black with three drops of milk, but have tried pumpkin spice latte. Not bad, but I couldn't drink it every day all year round.
The link to the information on gramma, aka crookneck squash, was interesting. Nanna's sisters lived in the Hunter Valley a couple of hours north of Sydney, which is where gramma pie seems to have been very popular - and it may have been unknown in other parts of Oz. When Nanna left her first husband she went to the town where her sisters lived, so perhaps picked up the idea from there. She earned her living as a cook and her pies were good.
Except that I was never quite sure if I liked gramma pie.......
