It's not quite September yet, but the summer weather is definitely winding down. There's a cool breeze in the air and the sun isn't quite as intense. What's the best way to celebrate the transition of seasons in the Quad Cities? A classic Whitey's Pumpkin Shake!

According to this post on Facebook by Whitey's, the flavor officially became available yesterday morning. But don't worry if you didn't get some - I'm sure Whitey's is fully stocked for the long weekend.

In an interview with WQAD, Whitey's Vice President Annika Tunberg said that the ice cream is based on a secret pumpkin pie recipe. If that's the case, Whitey's should just start selling whole pies too because they must be DELICIOUS. Better yet, chunks of real pumpkin pie in a shake. I think I'm onto something. Whitey's, let me know if you need any further ideas. I'm available for taste testing.
