These muffins attracted kids from three floors up when I was baking in the dorm kitchen (food is a surefire way to win friends).
Dangerously addictive, these gluten-free muffins are easy to make (just add water, eggs, and oil) and are an instant fall favorite.
This coffee is strikingly flavorful—almost like your favorite spice cider or tea—making it a uniquely festive addition to your morning routine.
Bonus: it is Keurig-friendly and perfect for your dorm room.
This toffee-like treat follows the trend of addictive pumpkin flavoring. The candy is perfectly sweet and offers a unique taste without being overwhelmingly pumpkin spiced.
This caramel coated popcorn is not too pumpkin heavy, but will definitely become your new favorite snack. Sweet, crunchy, and with a hint of fall, this treat is a must. The perfect way to escalate your average movie snack.
I was initially surprised about how different Trader Joe's pumpkin butter is than all their other butters (i.e. almond and cookie). More like a jelly, this decadent dip tastes like the inside of pumpkin pie, and pairs perfectly with sweet or salty chips.
Trader Joe's created the perfect gluten-free opportunity to double fist pumpkin foods with these salty crackers to match with the butter. The subtle pumpkin flavor lends itself well to a nice hunk of brie or a full submersion into pumpkin butter.
This pumpkin creme filled vanilla cookie is definitely not just another Oreo knockoff. These cookies are addictive, flavorful, and festive without being over the top (pumpkin flavor, not just coloring).
9. Spiced Cider
This may not be a pumpkin product, but it's a welcome break to chase your pumpkin indulgences down with. This apple-spiced cider gives your throat that warm fall feel. Not too thick or too sweet, this drink is a more subtle way to enjoy and to celebrate the season.
This granola is a perfect festive addition to your day. Enjoy it over yogurt, ice cream, or even by itself for a little added spice to your morning routine.
This chips have a slight fall tang but are not trying too hard to be pumpkin. They satisfy the tortilla chip trifecta—salty, crispy, and dippable—while adding a fun seasonal twist.
Trader Joe's has really outdone itself with the quantity and creativity of this season's fall products. But be warned: these treats are addictive. I am simultaneously stunned with appreciation and drowning in an 100-square-foot dorm filled with pumpkin.
