Now that Labor Day has come and gone, many businesses are promoting their fall specials. One announcement we eagerly wait for every year is the release of Whitey's pumpkin ice cream. Well, the time has finally come, my fellow Whitey's lovers.

Whitey's posted the above photo over the weekend and needless to say, their fans are going crazy over the news. People are tagging their friends like crazy and the photo has gotten around 500 shares on Facebook. Yeah, I would say the pumpkin love is pretty real in the Quad Cities.

Whitey's recommends topping the ice cream with whipped cream and cinnamon or, even better, pairing your pumpkin with Graham Central Station so that it tastes like pumpkin pie. Now that sounds like the perfect fall combo.
