Pumpkin Tortilla Chips
Chips—a vehicle for nacho cheese, salsas, and hummus—with a pumpkin twist. The Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Tortilla Chips are seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg, making them a sweet and salty accompaniment to your vegan dip of choice.
Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark
The Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark is eat-the-whole-bag-in-one-sitting-worthy. The perfectly crisp and sweet indulgence gives us the fall feels. This chocolate-dipped treat is packed with pumpkin seeds, quinoa, oats, and almonds. We’ll have ours with a hot cup of tea!
Cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, please! Pumpkin O’s are a vegan-friendly option to replace those nostalgic cereals from your childhood (we’re talking Cheerios). The product contains simple ingredients such as brown rice, oats, pumpkin, and a touch of cane sugar. Grab your favorite non-dairy milk and a big bowl—it’s cereal time!
Pumpkin Spice Coffee
Pumpkin spice is in the air and Trader Joe’s does not disappoint. The Pumpkin Spice Coffee makes for a festive cup of joe on a chilly fall morning. The medium dark roast is flavored with ground vanilla beans, pumpkin oil, orange peel, cinnamon, and nutmeg—a PSL made at home!
Spicy Pumpkin Curry Simmer Sauce
It’s spicy, creamy, and completely plant-based. Pan-fry some veggies and a little tofu, throw in a jar of sauce and serve on a bed of steaming white rice. The Spicy Pumpkin Curry Simmer Sauce is the ideal condiment for a cozy meal.
These are no ordinary bagels, each doughy wheel is made using pumpkin flour and is chock-full of bite-sized pumpkin pieces. This is the ultimate fall-inspired carb waiting to be toasted to perfection and topped with a schmear of cream cheese.
Gear up for baking season with Pumpkin Rolls—a vegan-friendly indulgence packaged conveniently in a can. These finger licking good pastries introduce seasonal spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove to a classic soft doughy cinnamon roll.
Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea
Sweater weather and a hot cup of tea—the perfect combination for a relaxing night in. The rooibos herbal tea is a warm, inviting beverage that incorporates aromatic spices in every sip. Add in a dash of almond milk and a spoonful of sugar and enjoy the subtle pumpkin flavor.
Pumpkin Pecan Instant Oatmeal
Instant oatmeal is easy to make and requires little to no cooking time. The box supplies you with eight packs of creamy, whole grain oats sweetened with cane sugar. Dried pumpkin adds a robust flavor that complements nutty pecans.
Pumpkin Flavored Joe-Joe’s
Trader Joe’s jazzed up their OG Joe-Joe’s by sandwiching pumpkin creme between two vanilla cookies. This yummy dessert is best enjoyed with a tall glass of almond milk or a hot cup of coffee. Serving size is two, but we won’t tell if you eat the whole box!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix
The Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix calls for non-vegan ingredients, but flax egg and oil (or even canned pumpkin) can be used as substitutes. The result? A chewy oatmeal cookie with dark chocolate chunks that melt to provide a rich flavor in every bite—a dessert we can get on board with!
Canned Organic Pumpkin
This list would not be complete without a good old-fashioned can of pumpkin. This squash is high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and the creamy texture works well in both savory and sweet dishes. Use it in sweet pie, savory hummus, and spicy pumpkin chili this Autumn.
