With cooler weather setting in, leaves beginning to change, and decorative pumpkins all around, we can finally start to feel fall spirit in the air. Trader Joe’s has decided to contribute to the fall festivity by introducing pumpkin and fall themed products to their store. Every festive food offered at Trader Joe’s is guaranteed to bring great joy with an assortment of fall, pumpkin flavoring.

These products include pumpkin oatmeal cookies, leaf shaped chips, pumpkin bagels, pumpkin ice cream, and even pumpkin empanadas. If you’re looking for some fun, new, and fall-spirited food, Trader Joe’s has it all. Even your dogs can get in the fall spirit with some of Trader Joe’s seasonal pumpkin recipe dog treats.

With pumpkins, large and small, stacked in bins outside of Trader Joe’s, their fall theme is introduced. There are endless choices of fall and pumpkin themed food. Everything from breakfast to dinner, and even dessert. 

One top fall breakfast item, Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mix, is a great way to start off fall festivities. Imagine waking up to the smell of pumpkin spiced pancakes on a Sunday morning. These pumpkin pancakes or waffles are beautifully balanced between sweet and savory, and the richness of this breakfast meal is astounding. I highly recommend this product to kick off the fall season. 

If you want an adorable item, perfect for a fall party, then Trader Joe’s Fall Leaf Corn Tortilla Chips are the way to go. These tortilla chips are seriously the cutest things I’ve ever seen. Every chip is in the shape and color of fall leaves. These chips scream fall and are almost too cute to eat!

A fan favorite seasonal product is Trader Joe’s Autumnal Harvest Creamy Pasta Sauce, made with pumpkin and butternut squash to create a delicious, smooth, and creamy mixture. My family and I enjoyed this rich, creamy sauce over rigatoni pasta. You may also find some pumpkin shaped

zucchette pasta at Trader Joe’s which would complete your fall family dinner. I will definitely be back at Trader Joe’s to buy more of this seasonal pasta sauce before it is gone. 

Looking for a delicious fall themed dessert? I recommend trying Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix. This recipe is very simple, and is a great option for your fall festivities. These freshly baked cookies will melt in your mouth and melt your heart. The strong pumpkin flavor will fill your mouth, without overpowering the chocolate and oatmeal flavoring. 

Go to your local Trader Joe’s to get some cute, fun, festive, and well-priced products to add to your fall festivities. There is a large range of pumpkin and fall themed foods, so there are products for everyone to love. But hurry, because these pumpkin-flavored items are only temporary, and you won’t want to miss out on these delicious, fall spirited products.
