The Blogger who tried ALL the Pumpkin Spice.

I’m just going to get right to it.  I love Pumpkin Spice. (What?  You guessed that?) Always have.  You know when imagine those people in marketing meetings saying “Who cares what it is- slap a pumpkin spice label on there and people will buy it!”  They’re talking about me.  I’m the people.  And I did something this season that I’ve wanted to do every year on this blog.  Buy ALL THE PUMPKIN THINGS.  

Pumpkin Spice Stuff

That’s just some of these things, pictured.  There are still things I’ve missed, mostly because they just weren’t available where I am, and I didn’t go into beverages at all.  And I only bought about 1/4 of everything available at Trader Joes.  But.  Here’s a ton of fun stuff for you to keep your eyes out for!  I bought all of this stuff at normal stores like Target, Walmart, Fred Meyer and Winco.  I’m including mostly pumpkin spice, but also some caramel apple, maple, and other fall flavors.  I grabbed anything and everything I spotted.  (And because I know someone might make a comment about it- most of these things are non-perishable and I can save them for my family to enjoy over time.  I also shared quite a bit of this with friends, family, those in need, and my kid’s school classes and sports teams.)

I have to say, though, I feel like I have a knack for great grocery store finds and I started an Instagram account just to share stuff like that.  You can follow it, here!  I’ll post limited edition holiday products, but also great all-around things you might want to pick up on your next grocery trip.

Now. Here’s my very scientific rating scale for the things I tried.  There were a few things I didn’t open, just because I didn’t want to be wasteful.  I chose to include them in gift boxes, donate, or pass along to friends!

Heck yes: Love it, want it, find it, buy it. 
Pretty Good:  Tasty, but not the BEST thing I’ve ever eaten.
Just Okay:  Meh.  Not memorable, but not horrible.
Blech: Save your money.

I’ve placed a * next to anything that I think is extra delicious in a given category, and when you see pink text, those things are linked so you can find them online if you’d like to.

Ice Cream

I had several friends come over and blind taste-test these ice creams, but it told me one thing; everyone has a different preference when it comes to pumpkin spice.  They ALL had different top choices!  So I’ll just rate them according to my own taste and try to explain the flavor as best I can.  Every one of these ice creams are good, it was only after tasting them all and comparing them back to back that it was easy to tell where some were lacking.

Ice Cream

Dreyers Pumpkin Patch: Pretty Good.  Fairly mild flavor, but good crowd-pleaser.
Tillamook Pumpkin Cookie Butter: Heck Yes. Has the most unique flavor but every tester loved the creamy texture and cookie chunks. My husband’s #1 pick.
Talenti Pumpkin Pie Gelato: Heck Yes.  The only flavors in this are pumpkin and nutmeg, so if you like nutmeg, you’ll love this.  Tasted like pie ala mode. 
Albertson’s Signature Select:  Heck Yes. This was a very surprise favorite for me.  I actually ranked it on top!  This has swirls of cream and big chunks of pie crust.  It’s super creamy and has a very traditional, classic pumpkin pie flavor. 
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Ice Cream:  Pretty Good. A couple people chose this as their top choice.  I thought it tasted very distinctly like egg nog. 
Private Selection Pumpkin Cheesecake: Just Okay. This was a surprising LOW ranker.  I love Private Selection; I’m a huge fan of their ice cream.  If you taste this all by itself you’ll probably love it (I did) but when compared to all of the others it was incredibly bland.
Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake: (not pictured) Heck Yes.  from my memories of year’s past!
DQ Pumpkin Pie Blizzard (not pictured) Heck Yes!

CEREALS Pumpkin Spice Products

Trader Joes Pumpkin O’s: Pretty Good.  lighter, crispier & milder than the Cheerios.
Pumpkin Spice Life: Just Okay. Very tasty, but not enough pumpkin flavor for me.
*Pumpkin Spice Cheerios: Heck Yes
Pumpkin Spice Special K: Pretty Good. Would get a heck yes if the amount of pumpkin spice yogurt balls was quadrupled.
Pumpkin Spice Mini Wheats: Just Okay.  Not enough pumpkin flavor for me.

PUMPKIN SPICE YOGURT Pumpkin Spice Products

Chobani Lowfat: Pretty Good
*Noosa: Heck Yes. Heck Yes. Heck Yes.  You could basically put this in a pie crust.
Chobani Pumpkin Harvest Crisp: Heck Yes I also love the apple version of this
Dannon Light & Fit Greek: My 6 year old ate this one before I could try it!

BREAKFAST Pumpkin Spice Products Kodiak Cakes Chocolate Pumpkin Minute-Muffin: Heck Yes.
Trader Joe’s Organic Toaster Pastries: Pretty Good.
Quaker Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal: Just realized I forgot to try this.  Stay Tuned.
*Belvita Pumpkin Spice: Heck Yes. Love these so much.
Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts: Pretty Good. I liked the Trader Joes one better.
Pumpkin Spice Granola: Didn’t open this yet!

Nutrition and Snack Bars

Pumpkin Spice Products

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bars: Just okay.  If you like this type of bar you’d probably rate it higher than me.  I don’t like these to begin with, so…
Sunbelt Granola Bars: Just okay.  Not super pumpkin-spice-y though.
LaraBar Pumpkin Pie: Just Okay.  I don’t really like these to begin with though…
Clif Bar Spiced Pumpkin Pie: Pretty Good
Kind Bar Caramel Almond Pumpkin Spice: Heck Yes. BUT, doesn’t taste significantly pumpkin-spicy.  Mostly just really great nuts and caramel and cinnamon.  But still tastes fantastic so I gave it a heck yes. But if you’re expecting pumpkin spice you’ll be disappointed.
Special K Pastry Crisps: Pretty Good! 
Think Thin Bar, Pumpkin Spice: Blech  I didn’t like these at all. 

SNACK CAKES Pumpkin Spice Products

Little Debbie Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cream Pies: Pretty Good.  Taste a lot like regular oatmeal cream pies. 
*Hostess Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes: Pretty Good!  FOR a Hostess Cupcake, ya know?  Surprisingly tasty.  It’s still a Hostess Cupcake, but I was pleasantly surprised.  Honestly almost rated these as Heck Yes.
Hostess Caramel Apple Cupcakes: Pretty Good!  Again, relatively speaking. My family loved these ones.
Little Debbie Pumpkin Spice Rolls: Blech.  Didn’t like these.
Hostess Pumpkin Spice Twinkies: Pretty Good.  Not afraid to say it.  I totally liked the Twinkies.

COOKIES Pumpkin Spice Products

Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies: Just Okay.  Wouldn’t buy them again.
Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Spice Milanos:  Pretty Good.  I have yet to meet a Milano I didn’t get along with.
Pumpkin Spice Wafer Cookies (Winco): Heck Yes! I have these in Apple Spice as well, and they are both REALLY good!  I love love wafer cookies.
Pumpkin Spice Fudge StripesHaven’t actually opened these yet.
Pumpkin Spice Oreos: Heck Yes.

MORE COOKIES

Pumpkin Spice Products

TJ’s Pumpkin Biscotti: Have any of you tried this one yet?  
TJ’s Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s: Heck Yes.  These have a very strong Ginger flavor, the Oreos are definitely more of a traditional pumpkin spice flavor.
*Mrs. Thinsters Cookie Thins:  HECK YES x 10.  Love these.
Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Cookies (Target): Pretty Good.  FOR a gluten free cookie.  They are very soft, but do have kind of a funny texture thing at the end.  But I’m assuming people that eat gluten free are kind of used to that.  Flavor is great.

SPECIALTY CHOCOLATE AND CANDY Pumpkin Spice Products

Pumpkin Spice Lindor Truffles: Pretty Good.  I thought the chocolate overpowered the pumpkin spice filling.  I was a little underwhelmed. 
Pumpkin Spice Caramel Ghirardelli Squares:  Just Okay. Again, not much of a pumpkin spice flavor comes through.
Pumpkin Seed Bark Thins: Heck Yes. Not pumpkin spice flavored, but I do love the crunchy little seeds.  I’m a big fan of all the Bark Thins. 
TJ’s Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramels: Heck Yes. To be fair, my husband hates these.  But I happen to love them.  They’re very dark with a hefty sprinkle of salt.
*Pumpkin Seed Brittle: HECK YES x 1000.  If you buy one pumpkin spice thing at TJ’s, let it be this.

*Pumpkin Caramel Danish (TJ’s): HECK YES. These freeze beautifully, grab some for holiday breakfasts!  Soooo good.
Thomas English Muffins (Salted Caramel and Pumpkin Spice): Just Okay.
Franz Pumpkin Spice Bread: Just Okay. Tastes like regular ol’ cinnamon bread.
TJ’s Pumpkin Rolls: Just Okay. Not bad, but tastes very tub-o-dough-like.

  1. Wow! This is awesome. I love Little Debbie’s Pumpkin Delights. You should try them out! I am so excited to try those wafer cookie flavors. Those cookies are my favorite. Also excited to try the Toaster Strudels. I also bought the pumpkin spice Kisses, my husband and I both didn’t like them. But my brother came over and pigged out and ate them all in one day. So like you said, everyone has different tastes. Thanks for posting this, it was fun, and I’m excited to try some new things.

    1. I love the pumpkin pie frozen yogurt at Maverick (convience store) when it’s available. AND I haven’t tried it yet but friends tell me that pumpkin spice coffeemate is amazing (put it in hot chocolate if you’re not a coffee drinker like me).

  2. What a great idea trying EVERYTHING pumpkin. I would have enjoyed taste testing with you! I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things pumpkin. The oreos are surprisingly delicious.

  3. I’m bummed to hear that you didn’t like the private selection ice cream very much. I just bought some of that, because I love their ice cream. It is pretty much my favorite. I also bought some of the Tillamook, and I am excited to try that! Stupid Trader Joe’s has replaced a lot of the sugar and corn syrup in their products with brown rice syrup, and I am allergic to rice, of all things. So every year, there are fewer of their products that I can actually eat. Which is great for my waistline but sad for my mouth! πŸ™‚ I am dying to try the boom chicka pop. Those sound so good!

  4. woah.. I don’t even know where to start. Usually I don’t buy anything pumpkin flavored (except pumpkin puree) b/c I’m afraid it will taste too artificial. I wish we had a trader joe’s nearby. You’ve intrigued me with the tillamook and kettle corn though… I’ll have to try those.

  5. I make mini pumpkin loaves every fall that are to die for. I will be making my way to the grocery store to try the Pumpkin Pie ice cream very soon!

  6. WOW! That was one of the most amazing posts! So excited to see products I’ve never seen before – BelVita Pumpkin Spice, I’m talking to you!
    I’ve been eyeing some of the products you’ve listed, so it looks like shopping day is going to be extra fun tomorrow.
    My favorite is homemade pumpkin muffins with double the spice, but since we are talking commercially prepared it has to be tillamook ice cream (don’t try their lemon bars – you’ve been warned) with a close second from chobani flips.

  7. Oooh, Try Philadelphia cream cheese in the pumpkin spice flavor! (I wish there was an HEB where I live, their flavored cream cheeses are so well done)

  8. I tried (and loved!) the Apple Spice wafers, but now I’ll have to get the PS ones! And a trip to TJ’s is DEFINITELY in order. I had a mild-yet-delightful PS sugar cookie from a Holiday Gas Station the other day, and I’m currently looking for a copycat recipe. Let me know if you find one! πŸŽƒ

  9. I was not aware of all these pumpkin products. Wow. My family is crazy for Entenmanns Pumpkin donuts. Their Apple Cider donuts are awesome too.

  10. I love so many pumpkin flavored things too, but I think my mom’s pumpkin & walnut cookies are my favorite! I know you said you were underwhelmed by them, but I am an obsessed, I mean huge Lindor truffle fan and so badly want to try those now!

  11. So you post DietBet last week and now you post this?!?! I see how it is πŸ™‚ I’m actually not a huge pumpkin fan, but once in a while, I try something pumpkiny that makes me rethink that. So maybe if I win this, I’ll find some more like that. I think the pumpkin brittle and the Kind bar would be good, I’d love to try the pumpkin waffle things, and we lover wafer cookies here too- I’ve never even seen them in pumpkin. The cookie thins from Target look yummy too.

  12. TJ’s pumpkin cookie butter might be the yummiest thing I have ever put in my mouth! This was an epic blog post and I LOVED it. Now you definitely have to do it again for peppermint come Christmas time!

  13. My favorite is the traditional pumpkin pie with some pumpkin spice ice cream on the side – pumpkin glory in its best.

  14. I am simple when it comes to food with pumpkin spice, I really like a pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookie

  15. For anyone in the Boston area, Bedford Farms makes an amazing pumpkin based ice cream with Oreos and chocolate chunks in it called Monster Mash. It is my favorite ice cream of all time.

  16. I loved Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter. I also like the General Mills pumpkin Cheerios. I was not a fan of the Trader Joe’s oatmeal or Quaker pumpkin flavored oatmeal.

  17. I like pumpkin spice ice cream, though I am a popcorn nut, so I am sure I would love some pumpkin spick popcorn if I had ever tried it.

  18. I would love to try the Toaster Strudel pumpkin and we love pumpkin ice cream for sure! I was at Kroger yesterday and saw Triscuits that were Pumpkin Spice. I had a blech moment there, but if you feel the urge/need to try it then there you go. lol

  19. I often say to people that I’m *THAT* person that they make all things pumpkin spice for. They finally put a Trader Joe’s within an hour of me and my first visit was last fall when I went and bought EVERYTHING pumpkin spice I could find. My mother just had me try some pumpkin spice custard from a local place that makes their own….soooo good! Pumpkin spice soft serve/custard for the win!

  20. I love Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Jo Jo’s. And the surprise hit fonthe season… Pumpkin Cheerios.

  21. One thing I love thatI noticed you did not test is pumpkin spice coffee creamer. I love to add that to my hot chocolate. There is a gingerbread flavor that is super delicious as well!

  22. Thomas’ Pumpkin Spice Bagels! I think Panera (maybe Brueggers? I can’t remember) also makes a pumpkin spice bagel that is to live for! Basically pumpkin+carb = winning.

  23. Love Ben and Jerry’s pumpkin cheesecake I may have stocked up at Walmart and then hid them in the bottom of my freezer.:) this is such a fun post! Thanks for sharing!

  24. Love pumpkin spice, but I also am huge fan of maple sandwich cookies. You made we want to try everything!

  25. I love all kinds of pumpkin treats, but I would have to say my favorite is my mom’s homemade pumpkin pie (she cooks her own pumpkin-not canned!). Sooo good!

  26. I was trying to add my comment for the raffle but it was blank so I’m adding it here. I love Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter!!! Have you tried their pumpkin spice cookie butter and coffee??

  27. Oh man…I’ve been unable to drive and walk around a grocery store due to a broken foot, so I’m living out my pumpkin spice dreams through blog posts this year. I’ve scheduled a shopping trip immediately after my next follow up appointment, when I should get out of the cast. One more week!

  28. Glad to know that I’m not the only one out there trying everything with the words Pumpkin Spice on it.

  29. How fun of you to do this! I LOVE the Chobani pumpkin crunch flips; ; when I bought them last year it was actually the first time I remember buying something that was commercialized pumpkin as I’ve always been more of a homemade pumpkin girl (pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin bread, pumpkin waffles, etc). I love making pumpkin goods but now I’m itching to branch out and buy some more commercialized products.

  30. Know that you were not too keen on them or your review is not a rave regarding the Trader Joe breakfast pumpkin bars. I really have enjoyed them.

  31. I went a little pumpkin spice crazy at trader joes this week. I love the pumpkin herbal tea. Also, those caramels. Yesterday I made snickerdoodles with caramel bits in them rolled in pumpkin pie spiced sugar….yum.

  32. I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from my Peanuts recipe book from the ’80’s. Love this post!

  33. I love anything pumpkin spice! In fact I’ve bought quite a few things lately that are pumpkin spice. I love the pumpkin spice almonds you can get in bulk at Winco. Can’t wait to try some of these, that I haven’t tried.

  34. The Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte mix is delicious. I make mine iced and it’s good without being sicky sweet.

  35. I almost bought the pumpkin spice Cheerios, then I hesitated and put them back. I will definitely try them now! Thanks for doing all the dirty work for us!

  36. I LOVE pumpkin spice. Except 2 years ago when I was pregnant I had a horrible aversion to it and I was so sad! Last year I took it easy, and this year I’m ready to jump right in! So far this year I love the Oreo’s, but I now have a few other things on my list to try. πŸ™‚

  37. I just bought the Maple French Toast Limited Edition Thomas Bagels from Costco and they are super duper good!

  38. I love homemade pumpkin streusel muffins. My kids have devoured the pumpkin spice Cheerios very, very quickly and I obsessively stocked up the pumpkin Chobani flips last fall so I would still have them as long as I could before they got pulled off the shelves.

  39. I’m eating healthier right now and I’m loving a great pumpkin waffle recipe I found on @biceps.after.babies instagram

  40. The little frosted pumpkin cookies at TJ’s were yummy, like those Mother’s circus cookies but pumpkin!

  41. I have loved pumpkin flavored things since I was a kid, way before it was trendy. My favorite from your list is probably the book chicka pop pumpkin kettle corn, although I definitely want to try some of the ice creams!

  42. Oh my goodness – hilarious fun! To think I just get excited when it’s pumpkin pie season at Costco! πŸ™‚

  43. I think my most favorite pumpkin flavor was that milkshake you posted a few years back that I tweaked into a protein shake and drank everyday for months πŸ™‚ and love this post … totally something I’ve always wanted to do but never had a reason like being a blogger πŸ™‚

  44. I love pumpkin, but I have always been too afraid to try some of these things, especially because I would probably be the only one to eat it at my house!!! I have an awesome recipe for pumpkin bread and my daughter and I love pumpkin oatmeal.

  45. I need to try some of these things! I love the pumpkin cupcake recipe from Deb at Smitten Kitchen. I make them every year!

  46. We love the Pumpkin waffles from TJ’s. Last time I was there I bought 4 boxes just incase. Love this post so much. Me and my daughter are always on the hunt for pumpkin/fall foods to try.

  47. I love pumpkin everything, but had to stop eating gluten a few months ago. (Stupid thyroid!) I’m so excited to see tons of gluten free options in your pile. Thanks for doing the research for me!

  48. So hard to pick a favorite pumpkin spice item, but we just made the pumpkin sheet cake from your blog and it was delicious! Also love pumpkin spice m&m’s and oreos.

  49. Fun post, thanks. Debating whether to chuck all my chores in favor of a Tillamook hunt. I tried the pumpkin spice Cerritos and didn’t like them. They made my mouth go numb.

  50. Where did you find the Milky Way Caramel Apple flavor at? I’ve been trying to find them for my hubby but no luck so far! I tried the Pumpkin Spice Life cereal too and it doesn’t really taste like anything but cinnamon. I love the little pumpkin muffins they sell at Sam’s Club. They are so moist and delicious!

  51. I love Nature’s Path pumpkin waffles. They crisp up nicely in the toaster and the flavor is delish.

  52. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and homemade is better than I can find to buy! The Pumpkin spice Cheerios were OK.

  53. My favorite pumpkin things to date are pumpkin rolls and your pumpkin chocolate chip bread!!! We recently tried the Cheerios and loved them!

  54. Current favorite is Pumpkin Spice Eggnog. Or maybe the canned spray whip cream. OR so many other things, EXCEPT pumpkin pie. It’s a texture thing, not a flavor thing.

  55. Pumpkin Spice muffins (homemade) are my fave, oh and Natural Bliss Pumpkin Spice creamer makes a yummy steamer! Can’t wait to try some of the above!

  56. I LOVE Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream and am now on the hunt for the Tillamook Cookie Butter Ice Cream – that looks AMAZING. I also want to try the Noosa yogurt!

  57. Holy goodnesss I love all the pumpkin spice stuff too. Although it sounds like our taste buds are different. I love the pop tarts from Trader Joe’s and their snack bars. Yum!

  58. I love pumpkin spiced stuff so much! And this might sound silly, but I have a hard time buying some of the stuff I see at the stores, cause I’m so worried I’ll be dissappointed! So I loved this post! I’m definitely going to venture out and try some of these. I love getting pumpkin spice hot chocolate, and my favorite pumpkin spiced flavored item is the pumpkin pancake mix at Trader Joe’s! Ah I love it!!! They are so fluffy and flavorful!

  59. I really, really, really want to try the Cheerios Pumpkin Spice!!! And I’ve been tempted to pick up every pumpkin-flavored item at Trader Joe’s, so if I win, I would be ecstatic!!! πŸ™‚

    1. I really, really, really want to try the Cheerios Pumpkin Spice!!! And I’ve been tempted to pick up every pumpkin-flavored item at Trader Joe’s, so if I win, I would be ecstatic!!! πŸ™‚

  60. Okay, love, love, love pumpkin spice flavor, but I tend to lean toward home cooked goods with it such as pumpkin cookies or pumpkin streusel cake. I’m intrigued by the Pumpkin Spice Cheerios. I’ve been seeing them in the store and was afraid to take the plunge. Now I’m totally going to do it! Also, I know that the pumpkin spice dipped pretzels are good. And both of those wafer cookies are going to be on my next shopping list!!!
    Thanks for all the great reviewing you sacrificed for us!

  61. Love me some of the Ben & Jerry pumpkin cheesecake, but you can’t beat a loaf of homemade pumpkin bread.

  62. We LOvE to make pumpkin waffles and slather them in buttermilk syrup, maple syrup and/or chocolate chips. We’ve already made these twice this month! Yep. Waffles are a favorite here.

  63. Loved this post!! Such good info. I made your pumpkin cake with brown sugar caramel frosting πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ» I think my favorite store bought item I’ve tried has been TJs pumpkin brittle. It’s amazing.

  64. I love pumpkin strudel Muffins I got one time at sams club. I haven’t seen them since but I continue to keep my eye out for them! I’m a fan of most things pumpkin spice.

  65. TJ has an awesome pumpkin butter. I put it on Greek yogurt and top it with homemade granola. It’s my breakfast all Fall!

  66. TJ’s pumpkin spice cookie butter is pretty amazing. Also love to make homemade pumpkin waffles with your buttermilk syrup recipe.

  67. I am feeling a strong urge to run to Trader Joe’s right now! Thanks for this fun post! I had heard about the butterscotch M&M’s being hailed as “butterbeer M&M’s” so we took some on our trip to the Wizarding World in Orlando last week. The kids loved them (not as much as actual butterbeer, but it was extra fun)!

  68. Oh my!!! Clearly I haven’t branched out enough to try all these pumpkin spice offerings!! I love mostly baked goods that revolve around pumpkin spice, like cookies and muffins. I

  69. Our favorite is a throwback to Utah days . Macy’s pumpkin cookies. Luckily we found a great recipe for them.

  70. My kids and I love pumpkin spice bagels with cream cheese! Yummy fall breakfast! These all look so fun!

  71. I’m in Canada and usually miss out on all these fabulous finds. Good thing my mom is in the states and will send me a goodie bag every once in awhile. I will be adding some of these to my want list!

  72. I have always loved the pumpkin spice pretzels at Costco each year. I have not seen them yet though. I can’t wait to try the Tilamook Pumpkin ice cream. Thanks for the lists!

  73. I had some Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Pretzels. Bought them at a bulk store, so don’t know the brand, but they were yummy!

  74. My favorite pumpkin recipe is your chocolate chip pumpkin bread. The yogurt. The fluffiness! I die!

  75. I love pumpkin spice things! My favorite are these homemade pumpkin spice bagels that I make many times throughout the fall. I got the recipe from a magazine years ago and they are so good!

  76. What a fun giveaway! I love making pumpkin chocolate chip bread in the fall…from scratch, not the cake mix kind.

  77. Give me all the pumpkin! Especially if it’s gluten free. I’m celiac, but my family isn’t!

  78. When I lived in Florida, one of the grocery stores there, Publix, had a really yummy store brand pumpkin pie ice cream that I would watch for every fall! Yumm!

  79. I’m a huge fan of my grandmas pumpkin spice cake we serve it at work which is a local coffee shop in our town! But seriously #pumpkineverythingplease

  80. Pumpkin ice cream is probably my favorite. Love the shake you have on your site! But I now need to try the yogurt too!

  81. Anything pumpkin spice gets tried at our house! I’m a November Birthday, so I like pumpkin pie for my birthday cake. Also my hubby makes an amazing pumpkin spice cake that he found online & tweaked the ingredients, it’s a birthday favorite as well! I can’t wait to see if I can’t find any of your “heck yes” items! I live an hour from any big stores, so I will have to make a list for my next trip! Thanks for your dedication to the best flavor ever!

  82. I really like Ben & Jerry’s pumpkin, but let’s be honest, my real favorites are Libby’s pumpkin pie and Starbucks pumpkin spice latte. I am almost always disappointed when I try other products because I’m comparing to the orignals!

  83. So far my favorite that I have tried has been the Pumpkin Spice Cheerios but I’m looking forward to the Pumpkin Pie pop tarts hiding in my pantry as well!

  84. Oh wow, I never knew that many items existed!! Our family was not thrilled with the Frosted Mini Wheats, but in terms of seasonal items, I love iced coffee and the new International Delights Salted Caramel Mocha coffee is soooooo good!

  85. I can’t wait to go buy some of that Ice Cream! My favorite pumpkin spice stuff is the cereal. I liked the instant oatmeal by Quaker and Sprouts.

  86. Trader Joe’s has a pumpkin cookie that is coated in yogurt. They’re almost a combination of a cookie and a yogurt covered pretzel. They’re shaped like pumpkins, are orange and white, and have tiny sprinkles on them. You must try them! I ate a whole box single-handedly.

  87. I love more the spice that goes with the pumpkin and all the flavors of fall. I would love to share all these goodies with my kiddos

  88. My 4 year old son and I have been waiting all year for the Thomas Pumpkin Spice Bagels to come back and they finally showed up last week! Oh happy day! We would love to try some other pumpkin snacks and treats!

  89. I love the new Belvita pumpkin but you also need to try GoGo Squeeze pumpkin flavor (at target) it’s so good!

  90. Pumpkin spice bagels toasted with cream cheese and targets pumpkin spice hot chocolate are 2 of my favorites right now. I also have a favorite pumpkin cookie recipe with butterscotch chips that is a favorite all year round!

  91. Everything sounds awesome! Love fall and the flavors that come with it! I now have more ideas of what to buy, I am drinking my coffee with pumpkin pie spice creamer and loving it!

  92. I love pumpkin frozen custard/ice cream! My husband and I thought the oreos were good. Have you ever tried the market pantry pumpkin cheesecake sandwich cookies from target? Sooooo good! I’m excited to try the boom chicka pop (love their popcorns) and also the trader Joe’s brittle. Both sound yummy!!!

  93. My favorite pumpkin spice recipe is for a homemade gluten free (because celiac πŸ‘ŽπŸ») Pumpkin roll cake from the blog Gluten Free on a Shoestring.

  94. Okay … I am in total Pumpkin Spice Envy !! I am in Nova Scotia and the ONLY product I have seen from your list is the Lindt chocolate balls. That’s it !! We are virtually a pumpkin spice free zone. Is that fair ?? Not really. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the fun trip through the amazing plethora of PS Stuff !!!

  95. Pumpkin Noosa has been my breakfast for almost two weeks straight. Just tried the Kringle last week, and it was also delicious! Also love the Petite Pumpkin cookies from Trader Joe’s.

  96. I love anything pumpkin! Since my birthday is in October, it’s tradition for me to have pumpkin pie instead of birthday cake. And I love pumpkin creamcheese muffins!

  97. This is so awesome! I’m more of a fan of the homemade pumpkin stuff. I have a list of things that I have to make every year.

  98. Oh man, my kids LOVE the TJ’/ cereal bars and we made a special trip last week just to get the pumpkin ones. I feel like we need to go back and pick up a few more items you mentioned… like that brittle. Oh, my yum!

  99. As most of these are not available in Canada I see a trip to the States in my future! Love pumpkin everything!

  100. Eating the mini wheats as I read this. πŸ™‚ I will be adding a few of these to my next shopping list! I was able to find pumpkin spice yogurt in Target’s simply balanced line a few weeks ago and prefer it to the Choboni, but it’s been gone every time I’ve gone back for more.

  101. I just had the pumpkin spice Cheerios, pretty good! Going to go grab the Belvita and the Noosa yogurt. I love pumpkin and Fall!πŸπŸŽƒπŸ‚

  102. Homemade pumpkin waffles with maple syrup, pecans and fresh whipped cream. I think they need to happen tomorrow for breakfast.

  103. woah! so much to try, so little time. I’m afraid fall will be over before I get a chance to taste them all!

  104. I fell in love with TJs Pumpkin Ice cream last fall when I was pregnant but didn’t want to be :-). It helped me eat my feelings. Now with baby in my arms, I’ll eat it to celebrate! I forgot how much I loved it!

  105. I love pumpkin ice cream, my favorite is probably Tillamook, but I can’t find that where I live… so I deal with the HEB brand, and it’s delicious!

    I want to try basically EVERYTHING you posted now, but I’m doing a healthy living challenge with my entire family for the next month, so I may have to buy a few and stick them in the pantry for next month!

  106. My favorite so far is pumpkin chai from Peet’s coffee. Or homemade pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes nummmmmmm

  107. Costco had bags of pumpkin pie almonds this weekend – and they’ve had them in years past. They’re not a Kirkland brand, light colored bag by the candy/fruit/nuts. (I’m super helpful, right? This is why you’re the lady with the blog – not me! lol) Anyway, they’re a huge favorite of my friends. I personally prefer homemade pumpkin chocolate chip muffins or bread to anything at the store.

  108. Oh man! How do you pick a favorite??? I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, etc. etc. etc! This week we are going to test out a new recipe….Pumpkin cheesecake snicker doodles!! Oooooooo…..that reminds me!! Olive Garden pumpkin cheesecake?!?!? One of the best cheesecakes I have ever had!!! That’s my favorite right there!

  109. Sarah – you have made my day. We LOVE pumpkin everything at our house but nervous to try some stuff. Thanks for making it easier at the grocery store next time. This was an awesome post!

  110. I am dying over this post! I totally fall under the “Buy all the Pumpkin!” group. I really like the TJ’s Maple leaf cookies. Can’t wait to try some more stuff!

  111. I LOVE Trader Joe’s pumpkin yougurt – it’s much better than Chobani’s pumpkin Greek yogurt…..the Trader Joe’s version tastes like a creamy pumpkin pie….delish! And of course their pumpkin spice Jojo’s are the best!

  112. Pumpkin pancakes are a favorite at my house this time of year. Also, I made pumpkin spice rice pudding this weekend and it was GOOD!

  113. I had those caramel apple pretzels. They were so amazing. I thought I bought them at Target. I was either mistaken, or they were out of stock when I went back for more.

  114. I’m disappointed that you didn’t enjoy the Frosted Mini Wheat’s more. They’re my favorite!

  115. I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty sure I’m not a fan of the Pumpkin spice. But after reading this post, I’m wondering if it is just pumpkin pie (I have issues with certain textures) and I just associate that with all things pumpkin spice. Because a lot of these things sound intriguing…

  116. Good thing I’m stuck at my desk all day or I’d be out buying ALL the new things I just learned about! I was disappointed in the Quaker oatmeal, personally. Our grocery store carries the signature select brand…I might have to stop on my way home tonight and check for that ice cream!
