Attention, pumpkin spice fans! Fall is right around the corner, which means it’s time to indulge in everything pumpkin spice. From Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes to Trader Joe’s endless pumpkin-flavored products, you can’t escape fall flavors this season. Luckily, we have the complete guide for all the pumpkin-flavored food and drink items you can purchase. Which product are you going to purchase first?
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte
Good news, Starbucks fans! The coffee chain’s iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte is now available nationwide. Launched on August 27, the fan-favorite was released earlier than recent years. Fans are already excited for the fall season, and one of the best ways to kick off the season is to sip on a warm, delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte. While some fans believe it’s too soon to drink the latte, other fans have said they have been waiting all year for their favorite drink.
Pumpkin pie-flavored Kit Kats
Fans of Kit Kats are in for a special treat this fall season with the release of pumpkin pie-flavored Kit Kats. Described as “crispy wafers in a pumpkin pie-flavored crème,” the candy bars will be available in a 9.7-ounce bag of individually-wrapped miniature bars. Kit Kats are the latest food brand, under The Hershey Company, to join the “pumpkin flavored” trend.
But that’s not all. Hershey is offering a wide variety of new candy choices for the 2019 Halloween season. This includes Reese’s pumpkins stuffed with Reese’s Pieces, the return of last year’s glow-in-the-dark candy wrappers, and a skull-shaped candy bowl filled with chocolate bars. That will certainly please trick-or-treaters this season. All of these new candy products from Hershey are available for a limited time, so be sure to grab them while you have the opportunity. You don’t want to miss your chance.
Pumpkin spice Burt’s Bees
Burt’s Bees is another product to hop on the “pumpkin spice” trend. Known for its earth-friendly, natural products, Burt’s Bees has been successful in offering customers with products specially geared towards personal care, health, beauty, and personal hygiene. In 2016, the company released a pumpkin-spice flavored lip balm and customers couldn’t get enough of it.
Everything you love about the beeswax balm [with its non-stick formula and affordable pricing] is all the same with the pumpkin-spice flavor. Unlike other pumpkin-spice products, Burt’s Bees offers a subtle flavor in the lip balm. The scent is similar to a cinnamon-vanilla blend, rather than a full-on pumpkin pie. You can sip on a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks while wearing Burt’s Bees pumpkin-spice lip balm. There’s no shame in that.
Pillsbury’s pumpkin-spice treats
There’s pumpkin pie in the air everywhere, including Pillsbury. The delicious dough brand is offering more pumpkin-spice flavored products than ever before. This year, you can look forward to Pillsbury Grands! Pumpkin Spice Rolls, the classic biscuits you know and love with pumpkin flavors. This could become your new favorite breakfast meal this season.
Pillsbury is also offering Pumpkin Shape Sugar Cookies, a pack of 24 cookies with each one emblazoned with a miniature pumpkin. They would make perfect Halloween treats. Finally, Pillsbury is releasing Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookies, a package of 12 delicious ready-to-bake pumpkin cookies with cream cheese chips added inside. The Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookies and Grands! Pumpkin Spice Rolls are available from now through November [to be enjoyed for Thanksgiving], while the Pumpkin Shape Sugar Cookies are only available from now through October. Get them before they’re gone!
Dunkin’ pumpkin drinks
If you love pumpkin-flavored drinks but you’re not a fan of Starbucks, you’re in luck. Dunkin’ [formerly Dunkin’ Donuts] recently launched its new fall menu, complete with a new pumpkin coffee drink you’ll simply devour this season. You can look forward to enjoying the new apple cider cake doughnuts, traditional pumpkin doughnuts and muffins, the fan-favorite pumpkin-flavored coffee, and the new Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Signature Latte. Available hot or iced, Dunkin’s new espresso-based drink distinguishes itself from its competitors, including Starbucks, by adding cinnamon and pumpkin flavors, whipped cream, a caramel drizzle, and a cinnamon-sugar topping. Starbucks might be known for its Pumpkin Spice Latte, but Dunkin’ is determined to change the way people drink pumpkin coffee.
Everything pumpkin at Trader Joe’s
Trader Joe’s, a popular chain of grocery stores, is ready to celebrate the fall season with a variety of pumpkin-flavored food products on its shelves. You can now stock up on all the food you want this season. For example, you can enjoy Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramels, everyone’s favorite Trader Joe’s candy with a seasonal makeover. Fans of oatmeal will enjoy the Pumpkin Pie Instant Oatmeal, a delightful holiday meal made with whole grain oats, real pumpkin, cinnamon, and pecans. You can make this warm dish in the microwave in just one minute.
For breakfast, you can pick up Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle Mix. It’s the perfect meal for those crisp autumn mornings. If you don’t like pancakes or waffles, try Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Nonfat Greek Yogurt. If you prefer eating toast in the morning, spread the grocery store’s specialty Pumpkin Butter on your bread, and everything else this fall season.
For snacks, munch on Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Tortilla Chips, which go surprisingly well with guacamole or salsa. Enjoy Trader Joe’s Petite Pumpkin Spice Cookies, the cutest pre-baked shortbread pumpkin cookies you’ll ever eat. Bake Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Scone Mix, in which all you have to do is add water. The mix comes with sweet maple-flavored icing, as well. Finally, just when you think you can’t get enough of the delicious pumpkin flavors, try Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Cheesecake. That will be something different to bring to your Thanksgiving meal.
No matter how hard you might try, you can’t escape pumpkin-flavored food this season. It’s everywhere and it’s going to stay. You might as well dig in and hop on the pumpkin-spice trend. Don’t upset Jack-o-Lantern’s feelings.
