The pumpkin spice phenomenon died Wednesday at age 16. The cause of death was the existence of Pumpkin Spice Spam.
A publicist for Hormel Foods Corp. confirmed to NBC News on Wednesday that the company will begin selling a limited edition run of Pumpkin Spice Spam online at walmart.com and spam.com on Sept. 23.
Hormel first broached the idea two years ago in a hoax Facebook post. But this time, Hormel swears the product is real.
