Max said he loves it.

"I love it, I love the doughnuts," said Max.

But to Eleanor pumpkin spice belongs in pumpkin pie -- end of discussion.

"Nowhere else," she said. "Coffee is coffee, coffee tastes like coffee."

Paula said she watched chefs making pumpkin spice pizza on "The Chew" and was appalled.

"No. Pizza is only tomato sauce and cheese, and maybe pepperoni or sausage," she said.

Matt seemed perplexed when he heard about pumpkin spice flavor getting into his favorite adult beverage.

"I like vodka but I'm still going to go with my traditional stuff," he said.

So where do you stand on the great pumpkin spice debate?
