Some people don’t like pumpkin, so fall offers them no pumpkin joy. Others are so excited that a diet of pumpkin latte, pumpkin muffins and pumpkin pancakes is seasonal splendor.
It becomes a Bubba Gump menu of pumpkin: pumpkin bagels and cream cheese, pumpkin pancake mix and coffee creamer for breakfast; pumpkin spice yogurt or soup for lunch, pumpkin pasta or risotto for dinner; pumpkin spice cookies and loaf cakes for snacking; and of course, for dessert, pumpkin pie and pumpkin ice cream.
And that’s just what you can pick up in the store! We got a mailer from Trader Joe’s that was all pumpkin, all the time; so we headed over to load up on pumpkin products.
All of the following are available at Trader Joe’s (except asterisked items), and many are available at other retailers nationwide.
Country Pumpkin Spice Granola
Joe’s Pumpkin O’s (Cheerios-type cereal with pumpkin and cinnamon)
Organic Pumpkin Toaster Pastries
Pecan Pumpkin Instant Oatmeal
Pumpkin Bagels and Pumpkin Cream Cheese (what a treat!)
