Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice: Trader Joe’s Featured Fall Items 2022


Alex Chizzik, Staff Writer

Every year, the anticipated fall festivities bring excitement to the world: the breathtaking foliage, sweater weather, and best of all, pumpkin spice, the hallmark symbol associated with the changing of the seasons. New recipes, iced latte orders, and other pumpkin purposes are practically all that is talked about. And every year, as the weather gets cooler, Trader Joe’s never fails to produce seasonal goodies for people to indulge in. The feeling of browsing up and down the store aisles, examining every product and putting the most intriguing ones in your overly-filled shopping cart, is unmatched. Here are just some of the Trader Joe’s 2022 Fall Seasonal Items and my thoughts!

1.Pumpkin Ginger Hold the Cone!

A Trader Joe’s classic staple is the Hold the Cone! which is a mini ice cream cone. It is the perfect size for a snack or dessert. On top of the existing chocolate chip, vanilla, coffee, and chocolate flavors, a new addition has entered the chat: Pumpkin Ginger! It is perfect for fall and has such a good pumpkin flavor!

2. Pumpkin Waffles

If you are like me, you have a sweet tooth and occasionally need something to fulfill your cravings for breakfast. The convenience of toasting a frozen pumpkin waffle for breakfast is great, but the taste is even better!

3. Butternut Squash Ravioli and Mac n Cheese

I personally have not tried either of these items, but they are definitely next on my list! They are easy and delicious fall staples to make on a chilly day, and are said to be worth the hype! Next time I go to Trader Joe’s these, will both be added to my cart!

4. Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s

Trader Joe’s always has many seasonal flavors of these iconic sandwich-cookies stocked on their shelves. Every fall, the Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s return and are somehow even better than remembered! If you like pumpkin and your classic Oreo cookie, go try these!

5. Oat Maple Beverage 

Another fall item I have yet to try is this one. If you are like me and love mixing up your coffee order, try the maple oat milk! It is so convenient and offers the perfect way to make an easy, fall-flavored at-home coffee!

6. Maple Sea Salt Kettle Corn

Normal kettle corn is so good––it has the perfect balance of sweet and salty. You might think that this Maple Sea Salt Kettle Corn may be too sweet, but the flavors mix so well together! It will not disappoint!

7. Cinnamon Bun Spread

This spread may not be as appealing as some of the other items on this list, but it is a definite must-try from Trader Joe’s! You can put it on anything you’d like! If you are a fan of cinnamon rolls, I highly recommend trying this!

8. Pumpkin Butter

Another product you might be hesitant to try, but don’t let that stop you from buying! You can put the pumpkin butter on literally anything, and it will transport you to an entirely new fall-filled world! It is amazing and goes well with all of your other favorite fall goodies!

9. Pumpkin Bagels and Brioche Twist

Both of these products are such good breakfast options to get in the fall spirit. They both have a really subtle pumpkin flavor (great if you are not obsessed with the flavor) and pair so well with butter or cream cheese, your choice!

10. Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix

For all my gluten-free people out there, I highly recommend trying this pancake mix. It is so easy to make, has a great pumpkin flavor, and is delicious! You would never know it was gluten-free.
