Fall is pure magic at Trader Joes. They go all out to bring the most unique, seasonal items that you won’t find anywhere else. I was doing my grocery shopping this weekend and of course, grabbed my favorite fall foods from Trader Joes.
Now, just a disclaimer – I am not the biggest “pumpkin” person. I like it but I’m not the girl who is sudsing up with pumpkin spiced body wash while burning pumpkin waffle candles and brewing a pumpkin coffee – you know what I mean?! So, my list reflects that. A little bit of pumpkin but not overboard
Enjoy these 15 best fall foods at Trader Joes that are totally worth the buy!
1. BUTTERNUT SQUASH MAC + CHEESE
This is – hands down- my favorite item on this list. I stock up on these! I even saw a women looking at these in the aisle and I had to tell her that she needed to try them. It’s everything you love about mac and cheese with a flavorful twist.
2. CHEESY SPAGHETTI SQUASH CASSEROLE
This is a delicious dinner option the entire family will love. It’s everything you enjoy about a warm casserole during the cooler months with a spaghetti squash base. You can just pop it into the oven!
3. PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE
Literally, the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. Like I mentioned, I’m not a huge pumpkin person. I actually doing even like pumpkin pie. This is it for me. It’s more of a pumpkin spice flavor with a graham cracker crust that is worth every bite!
4. AUTUMNAL HARVEST PASTA SAUCE + SOUP
I accidentally bought the soup but meant to get the sauce (both are great but the sauce is a must!).
5. PUMPKIN SPICED PUMPKIN SEEDS
These are absolutely addicting. They make for a great fall snack. They would pack well for school, work, on-the-go, or if you’re like me, you can eat half of the bag in bed watching an episode of the Real Housewives.
6. SPAGHETTI SQUASH SPIRALS + SAUCE
Spaghetti squash everything for fall. This is delicious dinner option that I can toss a protein option into (like shrimp or chicken sausage). I love Trader Joes for meals that come together in a few simple steps.
7. FALL ZUCHETTE PASTA
This is a just for fun buy! This pasta looks like little orange pumpkins. We got this last year too and loved how different and festive they were.
8. PUMPKIN WAFFLES
My son loves these and who am I kidding… I do too! If I’m going to make a healthy pumpkin waffle or pancake, I’ll do it totally from scratch so these are a quick option that’s nice to have on hand.
9. PUMPKIN CRANBERRY CRISPS
I love the fig + olive crisps with the Trader Joe’s soft goat cheese. I wanted to try this seasonal version and am happy I snagged them!
10. GHOSTS + BATS POTATO SNACKS
Totally just something fun for kids!
11. HALLOWEEN JOE JOE’S COOKIES
This should really be like #2 on the list if the order was about how much I loved the items. Someone told me that last year, Kylie Jenner posted about how good these cookies were. If so, she’s right on! These are better than an oreo… see for yourself!
12. PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES
And, if I’m in the cookie aisle, why not enjoy another! These are too good to pass up this season.
13. HONEYCRISP APPLE MINI SCENTED DIFFUSER
This was a last minute purchase at the register but a good buy. I put this in my powder room at the front of the house and everyone asks about it when the walk in my home!
14. CINNAMON WHISK OR BROOM
The most fragrant fall scent. The small whisk is only $1.99 I believe and it’s such a fun festive way to get your home smelling like fall. When I decorate my front porch, I’ll grab the larger broom.
15. PUMPKIN RAVIOLI
Not pictured because they were sold out. Evidently, they’re nearly sold out nationwide. If you see these in your Trader Joes, get them! Again, I don’t like pumpkin so I wouldn’t steer you wrong… these are delicious. Fall flavor. Not to much. Sold out for good reason.
and just to share a smile…
