If you're an avid Trader Joe's shopper, you know that one of the best parts about your weekly grocery trip is checking out its "new" section, which is full of exciting items that are either brand-new concoctions or seasonal items that only show up for a limited time each year. And now that we're finally approaching fall, Trader Joe's is bringing out some of their coziest items.
From the many pumpkin and apple-infused items to savory soups, there's a whole lot to love about fall time at Trader Joe's. The fall items cover about every meal, as well as snacks, drinks, and even non-food items such as candles and decorative items.
But which new items should you be keeping on your radar for your next Trader Joe's trip? Here, we'll break down some of our favorite items that are guaranteed to help give your home some cozy vibes in the coming months.
Non-Dairy Pumpkin Oat Beverage
The Non-Dairy Pumpkin Oat Beverage, which infuses pumpkin puree into its mix, is just as creamy and delicious as the well-known Oat Milk Beverage, but with an autumnal twist. It's perfect to make yourself a pumpkin-spiced latte, and Trader Joe's also recommends using it for a fall-flavored smoothie or, even, (if you're really into the pumpkin flavor) in your morning bowl of cereal.
Autumn Maple Coffee
If you're not a fan of pumpkin but still want to enjoy fall-inspired coffee, then the Autumn Maple Coffee is the perfect choice. The light roast is made of Arabica beans, which come from Central America, Colombia, and Brazil. To get that fall taste, the maple flavoring is achieved using natural maple syrup from Vermont.
Cinnamon Bun Spread
If you're a fan of cinnamon rolls, check out the cinnamon bun spread, a Trader Joe's classic. If you're wondering what to expect, one fan took to Instagram to describe it, writing, "It tastes exactly like the filling of a cinnamon roll." Toast some nice bread and top it with the cinnamon bun spread for a quick, faux cinnamon roll, or use it as the filling for homemade cinnamon rolls.
Pumpkin Butternut Squash Bisque
For all of your savory needs, look no further than Pumpkin Butternut Squash Bisque, which is full of hearty ingredients. Alongside the pumpkin and butternut squash, you'll also taste carrots and onions, as well as fresh sage, honey, and brown butter. It's perfect for a vegetarian-friendly weeknight meal and can easily be heated up either in the microwave or on the stovetop.
Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli
If you're looking for a delicious, easy meal with fall flair, you'll want to know about Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli. The filling consists of, of course, pumpkin (which was covered with honey, brown butter, and molasses before being roasted) that has been blended together with ricotta and mozzarella. The flavor is quite decadent all on its own, so Trader Joe's recommends sticking to butter or olive oil rather than sauce.
Mini Spicy Pumpkin Samosas
Trader Joe's has put its spin on an Indian tradition with its Mini Spicy Pumpkin Samosas, which boast flavors of pumpkin and paneer cheese, alongside a spice mixture that includes garam masala, cumin, coriander, chili powder, and fennel seeds. If you're looking for an appetizer that is equal parts Indian-inspired and fall-themed, look no further.
Organic Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark
Fall time also calls for seasonal snacks and Trader Joe's has the perfect remedy: Organic Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark. Similar to a granola bar, the bark contains pumpkin puree, gluten-free oats, roasted almonds, coconut oil, and maple syrup -- complete with a layer of dark chocolate to make this snack truly delectable. What's better than a pumpkin-chocolate combination in the form of a filling snack?
Autumnal Harvest Creamy Pasta Sauce
Trader Joe's Autumnal Harvest Creamy Pasta Sauce contains tomato puree, pumpkin puree, and butternut squash puree -- all made rich and creamy with the additions of heavy cream and butter. While you can go all out and add this to the honey-roasted pumpkin ravioli, you can also add it to a simple pasta for a more subtle taste of the season.
Few other fall drinks compare to spiced cider, so it only makes sense that Trader Joe's would stock their own version of the popular beverage, which tastes wonderful either hot or cold, depending on your preference. Its version notably contains no added sugar or anything artificial, letting the real delicious flavors -- apples, allspice, cinnamon, and cloves -- speak for themselves.
Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix
Fresh baked goods work wonders in making your home feel ultra cozy and Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix is here to make your baking endeavors even simpler. With this mix (which requires the addition of eggs, water, and oil), you can enjoy either a nice loaf or muffins whenever you're in the mood.
