It’s the mooooooost wonderful time of the year! (You know, besides the winter holidays).
It’s fall food season!
Last year, I missed pumpkin-flavored everything at Trader Joe’s, and this year, I was DETERMINED not to do it again. After a trip in early September, I asked employees the scoop on when fall items would be in stores. Then I put the date in my calendar, circled in red, and basically planned my life around it. I was ON TOP of it.
And NO OKAY I DON’T CHECK THEIR NEW PRODUCT LISTINGS DAILY!!
Uhm, yes. Yes, I do.
But if you don’t, here’s your guide to the 9 best fall items at TJ. MUCH better than a pumpkin spice latte.
1. Spiced Cider
I have fond fall memories from childhood of drinking apple cider (the best kind that leaves your fingers and mouth sticky) at the local pumpkin patch, and this TJ version brings me back instantly. Drink it piping hot or ice cold: either way is divine.
2. Pumpkin Spice Scone Mix
Pumpkin and maple: the perfect fall combo. Eating these for breakfast everyday BYYYEEE
3. Pumpkin Bread Pudding
4. Pumpkin Spice Biscotti
5. Fall Harvest Salsa
If you still want a salty treat, this fall salsa features pumpkins, butternut squash and apples, so basically, everything we love about fall.
6. Pumpkin Spice Joe Joes
Doesn’t matter the season, TJ does Joe Joes right. These are the perfect pumpkin pick-me-up. Enjoy with a cup of milk or cider.
7. Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn
The perfect snack for your October movie nights (we like Little Frankenstein, Clue, and Wait Until Dark).
8. Pumpkin Cheesecake
Already dreaming of Thanksgiving pumpkin pie? Curb your cravings with this decadent fall dessert.
9. Pumpkin Butter
Y’all be about to put this on E’RRRYTHANG: bread, waffles, pancakes, ice cream. It’s a delicious, eat-on-everything sauce.
