Your Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Product Roundup
It’s Fall y’all, and we know that Trader Joes has all of their tasty autumnal treats on the shelves ready for you to buy. But do you know what the new products are and what ingredients they hold? We do, so read on so that you get the best idea of what this season has to offer.
Quick note, some of the following items are high in sugar and sodium, which goes against most of Openfit’s healthy eating guidelines. But, sometimes it’s ok to splurge, right?!
Organic Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark
For a crunchy grab-n-go snack, this Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark is surprisingly wholesome. It’s free from fillers and made with oats, almonds, quinoa, cornflakes, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin purée, Vermont maple syrup, coconut oil, and pumpkin season spices.
Autumnal Harvest Pasta Sauce and Zucchette Pasta
Top this festive pumpkin-shaped pasta with Trader Joe’s creamy Autumnal Harvest Pasta Sauce which features tomato, pumpkin, and butternut squash. Use one cup of this delicious sauce to watch your sodium intake.
Howling Gourds Pumpkin Ale
This limited-edition, subtly pumpkin-flavored amber ale for Fall. Get them while you can.
Rich, smooth, and creamy, nutritionally this Pumpkin Cheesecake has few redeeming qualities—at a whopping 400 Calories per slice. Eat this for holiday occasions, and instead of getting seven slices for 400 calories aim to cut into 14 slices to reduce the damage.
Pumpkin Flavored Dog Treats
While not for human consumption, your pup can still partake in the Fall festivities with these presumably yummy Pumpkin Flavored Dog Treats. Pups enjoy pumpkin, and many say it is great for their digestion tract.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee
Who needs a Pumpkin Spice Latte when Trader Joe’s is selling Pumpkin Spice Coffee. They’ve added orange peel, actual ground vanilla beans, and pumpkin flavor to the usual fall spices. Just add your favorite creamer for a yummy morning brew.
Pumpkin Pie Spiced Ginger Brew
Spice up your holiday gathering with this Pumpkin Pie Spiced Ginger Brew. Cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, & clove give this non-alcoholic beverage its unique seasonal flair.
Spiced Pumpkin Madeleines
Trader Joe’s has taken this traditional French treat and upped the Fall factor by adding pumpkin puree and warming pumpkin pie spices. We recommend one cookie per serving.
Pumpkin Ginger Hold the Cone
These adorable Pumpkin Ginger Ice Cream Cones do little for portion control 280 calories each. But they are so cute and teeny, and I might just let them sit in my freezer until Christmas. Indulge in one cone rather than three to make this the perfect treat.
Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage
Make your own non-dairy pumpkin spiced latte at home with Trader Joe’s delightful Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage.
Trader Joe’s pumpkin-flavored play on the classic cream-filled cookie sandwich is an occasional treat. Each box contains around ten cookies, and every two cookies are 150 calories. Serve these cookies after a holiday meal. We recommend one cookie per serving.
Pumpkin Cranberry Crisps
In a genius move, TJ’s has added pumpkin to their already delectable Cranberry Crisps. These crisps are like Thanksgiving in every bite.
Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli
These Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli are relatively carbohydrate-dense. While a serving will only get you three or four ravioli, they’ll be a few delicious bites. Pair them with steamed green beans and a mixed-green salad.
Back by popular demand, Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Biscotti is back for a sixth season. Proving that you can pair just about anything with pumpkin and it will fly off the shelves each fall. With 11 grams of added sugar per serving—we suggest savoring one biscotti as opposed to two and serve with a cup of tea.
Butternut Squash Alfredo Sauce
A little goes a long way with Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash Alfredo Sauce. This robust sauce is not only great for topping pasta but is excellent to drizzle on top of Fall veggies or a chicken breast.
Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix
Pumpkin muffins are the highlight of any Thanksgiving feast. These are a bit dense on the calories, so you may want to tread lightly or plan an extra workout for the week. A great option is to make mini-muffins to reduce the calories per serving size.
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix
We believe that this gluten-free alternative to Pumpkin Bread Mix results in relatively light and fluffy muffins.
Pumpkin Pancake Mixes, Gluten-Full or Gluten-Free
If you can’t get enough of pumpkin everything, these pumpkin pancake mixes come in both gluten-free and gluten-full varieties.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix
These Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies are as sinfully delicious as they look. Approach with caution. To avoid all the calories, you can make these into mini cookies, too.
