Papa John’s Pumpkin Shaped Pizza

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

If you thought you had your fill of pumpkin products for this season, think again. Papa John’s has released a pumpkin-shaped pizza! Thankfully it does not taste anything like a pumpkin (phew!). Papa John’s has made selling pumpkin-shaped pizzas a Halloween tradition but seemingly went under the radar. It was available last year, but chances are you missed it, so you should grab one this year.

According to the Papa John’s website, they describe its Jack-O’-lantern Pizza as a thin crust pizza “decorated like a Halloween pumpkin with a pepperoni border and smiley face,” which you can get “made to order” and “delivered to your door at a price to suit any Ghoul or Golbin.” Also, the pizza has two little black olive slices in the center of its eyes!
