MOLINE, Illinois -- With Halloween and the holidays peeking around the corner, you're most likely to see pumpkins almost everywhere you turn.

So you know that means; lots of pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, and even pumpkin-flavored drinks.

One lady in Illinois is addicted.

"It's like candy, it's sooo good," says Sherry Lynn Gustafson.

Sherry Lynn's cravings aren't a seasonal thing, either.  She's coming up on 10 years.

"I got hooked and then I use to go get them at the gas station then I use to start making my own," Sherry Lynn says.

Now she buys about 52 boxes of the pumpkin spice to last about a year.  You could say her cup runneth over.

Sherry Lynn further explains, "I get worse as we go. I start hoarding now so I might have to rethink how many we have to get."

For Sherry Lynn's coffee habit that went from plain to pumpkin, it seems like orange really is the new black.
