Last Week Tonight was on a break Sunday, but John Oliver couldn't stay silent about the artificial flavor that saturates America every autumn. He threw this rant about pumpkin spice (disclaimer: contains no actual pumpkin) up on YouTube over the weekend.

Defend pumpkin spice if you want, but Oliver argues that what we're really seeking is an edible version of fall, the greatest of the four seasons, and there's no reason fall has to taste like a candle. In fact, there are plenty of better flavors that remind us of the cooling air, the changing leaves, and our own inevitable deaths. Let him tell you about some of them.
