It’s pumpkin everything season! Yep, it’s finally fall. And you’re smelling that sweet scent of gourds mixed with cinnamon just about everywhere you go. Trader Joe’s is no exception. If you haven’t been in your local store lately, then you probably haven’t gotten the chance to notice a major pumpkin explosion. They’ve got everything from pasta to pastries, and it’s all filled with autumn-y goodness. So, what can you expect from Trader Joe’s 2017 fall menu?
Let’s start with breakfast. If the kiddos are into waffles, and you don’t have time in the a.m. to make them from scratch, check out Trader Joe’s pumpkin-yummy version. But, if you’re more into the oatmeal morning meal, you can take home a box of the instant stuff — oh, in pecan pumpkin flavor. Mmm.
If you’re into baking, the gluten-free pumpkin bread and muffin mix is a simple breakfast solution.
The kids want lunch? Well, there’s a pumpkin option for that, too. Okay, so we’re going to throw a few squash options in here as well. After all, they’re kind of like pumpkin. Right? Hey, they’re fall-themed. And we love that! We also love the butternut squash mac and cheese. Of course, this is best fed to the adventurous eater. You know, your child who will eat something other than the day-glo powder mix version. If you’re looking for something simple, try the pumpkin soup (with the pumpkin soup crackers).
When it comes to dinner, you’ll find plenty of fall options. There’s a butternut squash parmigiana, harvest gorgonzola tarte, pumpkin ravioli and more!
Don’t forget about dessert! If you’re a “Hold the Cone!” fan (ah, the delicious mini ice cream cones), you can try a pumpkin ginger version. That’s not to mention all of the other pumpkin-wonderful treats. Pumpkin spice caramel corn, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin spice cookies and pumpkin cheesecakes are all seasonal favorites.
