Pumpkin patch is meant to capture the essence of Fall in New Jersey. The smell of pumpkin and the combination of pumpkin inspired food and drinks with cream, cinnamon, and sugar. This gummy gives you the pumpkiny feel of a creamy coffee or dessert during fall. Recipe by: Chef Jeff Nappe @ChefJeff19
