Deep breath: We’re entering fall, y’all! The chaotic, exciting, autumnal frenzy where we throw gourds onto everything, wrap ourselves in sweaters, and dash between football fields and apple orchards and maybe a haunted house or two. To keep up your spirits (and your energy), you’ll need snacks. Lots of them.
And no one knows how to celebrate the harvest like fan-favorite Trader Joe’s. Their latest Fearless Flyer boasts a cornucopia of pumpkin-everything, apples galore, and warm caramel creations—all in bite-size, speedy-sustenance form. We’ve gathered our favorite season’s eatings below:
1. Pumpkin Butternut Squash Bisque, $3.99
This 15-ingredient soup is made with good, flavorful ingredients (pumpkin purée, butternut squash, honey, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar to name a few). Each container serves 2.5, but I’ll turn a blind eye if you eat the entire container in one sitting. On second thought, I’ll do the same.
2. Turkey & Pumpkin Mole Burrito, $3.99
3. Sweet & Savory Pumpkin Spread, $2.99
4. Spooky Bats & Cats Gummy Candies, $2.99
Have your sweetest Halloween ever with these gelatin-free gummies made with plant-based colors like spirulina powder and turmeric.
5. Halloween Joe Joe’s Cookies, $2.99
Chocolate pumpkin-faced cookies are filled with Trader Joe’s signature vanilla bean creme for a sweet and spooky snack for fall.
6. Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cups, $4.99 for 12
Perk up your morning with these single-serve cups of coffee flavored with cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. If that doesn’t taste like fall is officially here, I don’t know what will.
7. Pumpkin Biscotti, $3.99
Trader Joe’s biscotti manage to have the perfect crunch without tasting bland or dry, and the spiced pumpkin flavor is prominent without being too punchy.
8. Harvest Blend Herbal Tea, $2.29
This caffeine-free tea features a blend of cinnamon, ginger, hibiscus, chamomile, roasted chicory, orange peel, and apple for a warm and cozy beverage that hits the spot morning, noon, and night.
9. Pumpkin Spice Espresso Beans, $0.99
Chocolate-covered espresso beans are always a hit, so why wouldn’t pumpkin spice espresso beans totally take off too? Sweet white chocolate, pumpkin powder, and aromatic pumpkin pie spices make this perky snack perfect for fall.
10. Pumpkin Spice Batons, $1.99
Thin and crispy, these pumpkin spice cookies will disappear in 3, 2, 1.
11. Pumpkin Kringle, $7.99
If you can get your hands on this pumpkin breakfast treat, stock up. It’s sweet, spiced, and everything nice about fall.
12. Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bagels, $4.49
Brown rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch make these pumpkin spice bagels gluten-free. Pop one in the toaster, smear it with butter (or the cinnamon bun spread! Or maple butter!), and start your day on a delicious note.
13. Pumpkin Spiced Teeny Tiny Pretzels, $2.99
A pumpkin-spiced infused yogurt turns these pretzels from a savory snack to a sweet one…but I don’t hear anyone complaining.
14. Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce, $3.49
When you don’t feel like cooking something elaborate but are craving good old fashioned American comfort food, heat this creamy pumpkin sauce, mix it with your favorite shape of cooked pasta, and call it a night.
15. Pumpkin Ice Cream, $3.99
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean that we’re not still all about ice cream. And there’s really nothing more fitting for cool weather and crisp leaves than Trader Joe’s pumpkin ice cream.
16. Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle Mix, $3.99
17. Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix, $3.99
If you’re cooking breakfast for someone who is gluten-intolerant or has celiac disease, whip up a batch of pumpkin pancakes for them too with this GF mix.
19. Cinnamon Bun Spread, $3.49
This spiced spread tastes like the filling of a cinnamon roll without being cloyingly sweet. I’d recommend drizzling it over ice cream (like TJ’s pumpkin ice cream!) or waffles, but you can experiment all season long…and then report back with your favorite use!
20. Pumpkin Cranberry Crisps, $3.99
“They’re made with actual pumpkin, which gives them a slightly denser – yet no less crispy – texture than their forebears. Rounding out their flavor profile are abundant amounts of tart cranberries and just the right amount of seasonings, including thyme, nutmeg, and turmeric,” according to Trader Joe’s website.
21. Autumnal Harvest Soup, $3.99
On a cold fall day as the leaves are falling and the wind howls in the air, heat up a bowl of this seasonal soup featuring smooth butternut squash, semi-sweet pumpkin, and slow-simmered California tomatoes.
22. Pumpkin Spice Hummus, $2.49
Hummus is a delicious, nourishing snack year-round but for a little fall flair, try Trader Joe’s pumpkin spice version.
23. Pumpkin 4-Cheese Greek Style Yogurt Dip, $3.49
A combination of pumpkin purée, shredded Monterey Jack, sharp cheddar, cream cheese, and Parmesan are mixed together for this creamy dip. Pair it with Trader Joe’s Halloween-themed potato or tortilla chips.
24. Ghosts & Bats Crispy Potato Snacks, $2.99
These Halloween-themed potato chips are the ultimate snack upgrade for fall.
25. Pumpkin Tortilla Chips, $3.29
The flavor of these pumpkin spice chips from Trader Joe’s is subtle. A hint of pepper touches the back of your throat and a little bit of cinnamon introduces some warmth without being overpowering.
26. Organic Maple Butter, $3.99
This creamy, spreadable version of maple syrup is what dreams are made of. Try it on a bagel!
27. Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix, $3.99
For a delicious shortcut for a fall dessert, make these cookies that are jam-packed with chocolate chips, oatmeal, and a handful of warm staple spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
28. Pumpkin Empanadas, $3.99
Trader Joe’s calls these empanadas a savory pumpkin pie that you can hold in your hand. Don’t mind if I do!
29. Spicy Pumpkin Samosas, $3.99
Hiding inside the flaky flour crust is a myriad of spices—including garam masala, cumin, coriander, chile powder, and fennel seeds—plus paneer cheese and chunks of pumpkin for a seasonal Indian-inspired appetizer.
30. Pepita Salsa, $2.99
Many a night, dinner’s a tub of hummus and a bag of carrots. No longer! For the month of October, I’m trading out my hummus for fiery salsa made with pumpkin seeds.
31. Fall Leaf Corn Tortilla Chips, $2.99
Instantly elevate the snack table at a kids’ Halloween party with crowd-pleasing tortilla chips cut into the shape of leaves and dyed fall hues like orange and yellow.
