Fall is my FAVORITE time of year to shop at Trader Joe’s! They come out with the cutest products that get me excited for the season. From pumpkin butter to pumpkin o’s to pumpkin coffee, there are sooo many Trader Joe’s fall must-haves all throughout the store. Take a look below to see a round-up of some of their best items available this season.
What are your favorite Trader Joe’s fall products? I would love to know!
This is probably my all-time favorite Trader Joe’s fall product. It is just so delicious and tastes like fall in a jar! Even just a little spoonful of this magical spread adds a ton of flavor. I like to use it in my oatmeal or overnight oats for a pumpkin-packed start to the day.
This cereal is another one of my Trader Joe’s fall must-haves. I always pick up this up as soon as I find it on the shelves. The pumpkin flavor in the o’s tastes like real pumpkin (as it should!) with a dash of spicy goodness. I like to enjoy it with vanilla almond milk or as a smoothie topping! It’s also great in a homemade trail mix with raw nuts and pumpkin seeds.
Fall Leaf Corn Tortilla Chips
I just think these are the cutest thing and make for an adorable snack and appetizer spread for a night with friends.
Riced Cauliflower Butternut Squash Risotto
Personally, I think this product is even better than the Trader Joe’s cauliflower rice stir fry, which I know is quite popular. This mix has the addition of butternut squash and a super flavorful sauce that tastes like savory fall goodness! I will be buying this product every time I go to Trader Joe’s this fall.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee
As a pumpkin and coffee-lover, this product really speaks to me. The flavor is perfect and in addition to pumpkin spice, also offers a hint of orange peel, which is absolutely superb. This product is sold as ground coffee or as k-cups. Both are great! I have a drip coffee maker at home, so I usually opt for the ground coffee. I used to buy the k-cups and bring them to work (when I was still going into the office!). However you brew it, I highly recommend pairing a hot cup of this coffee with a healthy chocolate chip pumpkin doughnut. Yum! 😀
Harvest Blend Tea
This tea is absolutely divine! It tastes kind of like apple cider in a way. It is packed with all of the wonderful spices of cider without being too sweet. Best of all, it’s herbal tea (i.e., decaf) so you can drink it all day long! I love sipping this in the afternoon for a little pick-me-up.
All hail the humble squash! While this product of course isn’t unique to Trader Joe’s, I couldn’t do this list without mentioning it. Trader Joe’s has tons of squash varieties and I look forward to buying them each year. My store typically has butternut squash, spaghetti squash, delicata squash and acorn squash. If you are a squash-lover like me, definitely check out one of Trader Joe’s special squash recipes before your next shopping trip, like Acorn Squash Tacos, Butternut Squash Hummus, Spaghetti Squash with Meatball Marinara or Roasted Squash Salad.
Pumpkin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
This product seems like an oxymoron. Before you laugh at the concept of pumpkin seeds covered in pumpkin spice, you need to try these for yourself. They have an incredible sweet and salty pumpkin flavor that I absolutely love. I like to use them sprinkled on top of oatmeal or a smoothie, or in a DIY snack mix with cereal and raw nuts.
Frozen Pumpkin Waffles
For a super easy fall breakfast, you can’t go wrong with these frozen pumpkin waffles. Add a drizzle of maple syrup and almond butter and you’ve got a real pumpkin spice breakfast of champions.
Honeycrisp Apple & Vanilla Pumpkin Candle
I have become a huge fan of the Trader Joe’s candles each season. They come out with the most fun and festive scents. This fall, they are selling two scents, honeycrisp apple and vanilla pumpkin. I like both. The apple one smells like an apple orchard and the vanilla pumpkin one has a nice, but not too overpowering pumpkin scent.
Again, another product that of course is not unique to Trader Joe’s, but I had to give it a shout-out. Honeycrisp apples are my favorite kind of apple! They are super juicy and sweet, without being tart and sour like some other varieties. I love to stock up on them each fall and have them for a snack or chopped up and mixed in with cinnamon and almond butter in oatmeal.
