It's like a pre-game celebration for Halloween. Today is National Pumpkin Day!

Pumpkins are a very flexible fruit, used to make pies, cookies, bars, coffee, cheesecake, pasta and oatmeal.

Of course, pumpkin spice is a popular flavor loved by millions around the U.S.

In addition to its edibility, pumpkins are also fun for families to carve and decorate for trick-or-treaters.

The U.S. produces 1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins in total – with Illinois making the most.
