As soon as the weather drops below 70 degrees, I am ready to put on my chunky sweaters and fuzzy socks. One of the best parts about fall is the delicious pumpkin flavored treats. Over the past couple of weeks, I have been on a hunt to find the best fall treats. To do this, I went to the one place I know best–– Trader Joe’s. Here is what I found:
Perfect Bar: Pumpkin Pie
These Perfect Bars have become one of my favorite discoveries in college. Whenever I have an early class, I love grabbing one of these. They make the mornings so much easier and they keep me full until I can get lunch. Last week, I tried the pumpkin pie flavor and was pleasantly surprised. It tastes like fall in a bar.
I have loved the classic Joe-Joe’s for a while, and last year I tried the pumpkin version. They have the perfect amount of pumpkin taste, without being overwhelming. I love to have a couple of these whenever I am craving something sweet during the day.
Pumpkin Bread Mix
Another amazing Trader Joe’s find is their pumpkin bread mix. My mom has made the best homemade pumpkin bread my entire life and now that I am in college, I have been on the hunt for the best boxed pumpkin bread mix. This one from Trader Joe’s is the best one I have found. It is the perfect amount of pumpkin, and the bread is soft and fluffy. 10/10.
Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Slims
I completely credit this finding to my roommate, Ashley (a fellow Her Campus member)! She picked up these yogurt-covered pretzels the other day and raved about them. I am definitely going to have to get some this week because they sounded amazing!
Pillsbury Pumpkin Sugar Cookies
Okay, so these are not from Trader Joe’s, but I couldn’t not include them. These cookies are a classic during any time of the year. They are such an easy and yummy treat to make with your friends (or by yourself). This year, Pillsbury has sugar cookies with pumpkins and ghosts. Such a delicious treat to help you have some Halloween spirit!
