10 Best Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Products

10 Best Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Products

Even though we’re not known for our fall weather here in Southern California, that doesn’t stop us from enjoying a Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL) from Starbucks at the Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) Pumpkin Festival in 80-degree weather. But if you’re still craving all things pumpkin flavored and the PSL isn’t cutting it for you anymore, then you’ve got to head over to your nearest Trader Joe’s locationTrader Joe’s is the hub for all things pumpkin-flavored, so we’ve made a roundup of our top 10 go-to products.


Pumpkin O’s

If you’re a fan of Cheerios, then these will definitely make you cheery. And unlike other “pumpkin flavored” cereals, these O’s are made with actual pumpkin. With pumpkin, cinnamon and sea salt all up in the mix, this vegan whole-grain cereal is the perfect way to start your morning and kick that pumpkin-spice craving.


Pumpkin Bagels

If you don’t want to have cereal every day but still want to get your pumpkin fix, you can rotate these pumpkin bagels into to your mornings. What makes these pumpkin bagels special is their flavorful ingredients—pumpkin flour milled from fresh pumpkins and a pumpkin spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Smear some Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Cream Cheese or Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter (featured next on the list) and you’re all set.


Pumpkin Butter

While the name might say butter, the product itself actually doesn’t contain butter and is more likely named for its butter-like consistency. So rest assured, you’re going to have a hard time believing this smooth, easy-spreading product isn’t butter. You might even say “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”—like we haven’t heard that one before.


Pumpkin Waffles

That’s right —pumpkin WAFFLES. And with the season premiere of “Stranger Things” around the corner, you’ll be ready to channel your inner Eleven with these Eggo wannabes. But If you really want to take it up a notch, be sure to dab some Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter onto your waffles for an extra savory flavor.

Your pumpkin-loving friends and family will be thanking you after their first bite.

Feel like taking a freshly baked goodie to your next event, but don’t have time to put in too much effort? Then these ready-to-bake pumpkin rolls are calling your name! Personally, I’d whip up some cream cheese frosting to give it some major Cinnabon vibes.

Need something to dunk into your PSL’s? These pumpkin-shaped shortbread cookies will pair perfectly with your morning cup of joe! If the pumpkin spice sweetness isn’t enough, these baked goods are also coated with yogurt. So if these cookies don’t satisfy your sweet cravings, nothing will.

Need a quick, easy study snack? These loaf-shaped, bite-sized crackers are the perfect blend of savory and sweet, and have the right amount of crispness—just what you need to curb those study session munchies. They’re also packed with a generous amount of tart cranberries and are seasoned with thyme, nutmeg and turmeric. For some additional flavor, you can spread Trader Joe’s Apricot Cherry Cranberry Goat’s Milk Cheese onto your crackers.


Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage

Quench your pumpkin spice craving with this creamy non-dairy almond beverage. It can be enjoyed over ice or heated which is perfect for those on-the-go who want to add a little fall comfort to their day. And if you’ve got a little more time on your hands, add some of this to your favorite milkshake recipe to give it a fall twist.


Pumpkin Spice Coffee

Quit breaking the bank with your endless trips to Starbucks for those PSL’s and make the signature drink from the comfort of your own home. And regardless of your brewing choice, Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Coffee comes as ground coffee or in Keurig-friendly single serve cups. Since the pumpkin flavor is subtle, I recommend adding a splash (or two) of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage for an additional kick.
