Second update--I got allspice while I was there--the allspice contains cloves (in addition to iirc nutmeg and cinnamon). So I probably could've just gone with the Pumpkin Pie seasoning (since it had allspice).

Allspice is a not a mix of spices. It comes from a single dried fruit of central american tree. It was thought to taste like a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and hence its name but it is not a mix of them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allspice

I have seen recipes for pumpkin pie with and without ground cloves. You might want to make a pie with cloves and another without them to see which recipe you like more. I prefer to put ground cloves in the pie but I have noticed that it is easy to over do it and so I actually now will measure the ground cloves when I make the pie to make sure I don't use to much and make the cloves overpowering.
