As a devoted Trader Joe’s shopper, I can tell you there are three seasons at TJ’s: mango, pumpkin spice, and peppermint. And we all know pumpkin spice is the best! If that makes me basic, so be it, Martha.
Fully embracing my basic-ness, I ventured into our local TJ’s this morning to scope out all the new pumpkin spice items. I’m happy to report that pumpkin spice season is in full effect! And not just pumpkin spice, but other fall-inspired vegan items you’ll love — I’ll include them too!
Here they are! Get them while they last! 🧡🎃
1. Pumpkin Rolls
Yes, these are vegan and yes they are AMAZING! They even come with a pumpkin spice icing. 😭😭😭
2. Pumpkin Spice Coffee
Start your crisp fall morning off with a cup of this deliciousness. Or invite some of your favorite people over and make a pot of this with some of those pumpkin rolls!
3. Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s
Trader Joe’s cream-filled cookies get a pumpkin spice makeover every fall — and it’s a beautiful thing.
4. Pumpkin O’s
TJ’s take on Cheerios also get upgraded for fall with a pumpkin version.
5. Pumpkin Bagels
This Jewish gurl whole-heartedly approves!
6. Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix
If you feel like baking, these sound incredible! Not sure if the box calls for eggs or milk, but if it does you can just use a vegan egg replacer and your favorite plant-based milk.
7. Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix
One of my favorite desserts in the world is warm pumpkin bread with vanilla-caramel ice cream. Again, not sure if the box calls for non-vegan crap, but if it does just use your favorite vegan versions.
8. Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea
This herbal blend is warm, spicy, and perfect for a fall afternoon. Rooibos tea is caffeine-free so it won’t keep you up all night either.
9. Pumpkin Spice Pumpkin Seeds
I wasn’t aware I needed these in my life but who am I to argue with the good people at Trader Joe’s? By the way, pumpkin seeds are great for you! They’re not only protein-rich, they’re also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and a slew of antioxidants.
10. Pumpkin Tortilla Chips
Yes, I thought the same thing… but trust me, these are actually really good.
11. Pumpkin Recipe Dog Treats
Can you even?? How adorable are these?! And yes, they’re 100 percent vegan!
Other Fall-Inspired Favorites
While not pumpkin-flavored per se, I wanted to include the rest of these items because they’re some of my favorite seasonal things at Trader Joe’s for this time of year!
12. Candy Corn Popcorn
If you buy one item off this entire list, buy this! Honestly, I could write a whole post on how much I love this stuff. You will not be able to stop eating it. You will enter the fifth dimension. Trust.
13. Apple Cider Jam
How good does this stuff look?! I’ve never seen it before so I bought a jar today. Can’t wait to try this!
14. Harvest Blend Herbal Tea
I haven’t seen this before either so I picked up a box today. Let me tell you some of the ingredients: cinnamon, ginger, hibiscus, apple, and chamomile. GURL. I’m here for it!
15. Halloween Joe-Joe’s
I love these! Just like the regular Joe-Joe’s but with a scary Jack-o’-lantern face. Cute!
16. Fall Leaf Corn Tortilla Chips
Imagine having people over for a horror movie night and putting these out? Love the colors and how they’re shaped like leaves. Well done, TJ’s! 👏👏👏
17. Caramel Spice Coconut Cream Cold Brew Latte
We tried this on my podcast a couple weeks ago and it was pretty good. A super easy grab-and-go if you’re looking for something cheaper than Starbucks but still decent.
