Fall is here, you were probably tipped off by the changing leaves, crisp air, or the fact that every food product is now offered in a "pumpkin spice" flavor. It seems as though everyone has succumbed to the annual pumpkin spice craze, myself included. It's hard not to want a PSL while crunching leaves in your UGG boots.

All jokes aside (yes, that was a joke people), the obsession needs to chill. After discovering pumpkin flavored dog treats at Trader Joe's, a question popped into my head: what happens to the .1% of people who don't like pumpkin spice?

Do they just hibernate for all of fall? And off of that, what happens in the .01% chance you get sick of pumpkin spice? I realized then that we were neglecting all the other flavors of fall. 

After my fall-flavored epiphany, I decided to find all the fall seasonal products in Trader Joe's that weren't pumpkin spice. With the Trader Joe's "Fearless Flyer" in one hand and a pumpkin iced coffee in the other (guilty), I made my way down the aisles on a mission

While the flyer did not seem promising, I managed to find 14 fall-inspired products without any traces of pumpkin. 

1. Apple Caramel Greek Yogurt

vegetable, juice
Sofía Vainesman

To satisfy any caramel apple cravings without the cavities. 

2. Cinnamon Spice and Apples & Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal

cereal, milk, corn, porridge, sweet
Sofía Vainesman

Just ignore the pecan pumpkin oatmeal sign in the corner. 

3. Apple and Maple Pecan Granola Cereal 

cereal, corn, sweet, milk, granola, muesli, wheat, popcorn
Sofía Vainesman

Also ignore the pumpkin spice granola.

4. Harvest Blend Herbal Tea

cake, tea
Sofía Vainesman

The tea is a combination of cinnamon, ginger and apple flavors (no pumpkin). They say in the flyer for this product, "yet, even at Trader Joe's, we know that pumpkin isn't the only flavor of fall." Really TJ's? 

5. Spiced Cider

They have a few variations of apple cider, but this one is spiced. Keep to the side and you won't notice the pumpkin cereal bars. 

6. Caramel Popcorn

popcorn, corn, candy, sweet, kettle corn, goody, cereal
Sofía Vainesman

Just like you're at a state fair. 

7. Julienned Root Vegetables

vegetable, seafood, shellfish
Sofía Vainesman

Root vegetables aren't the first thing that come to mind when I think of fall flavors, but they were in the "autumnal entrees" section so we're just gonna roll with it. 

8. Kale, Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Pizza

pizza, tomato, cheese, dough, vegetable, crust, mozzarella, sauce
Sofía Vainesman

Butternut squash is a staple vegetable for fall dinners. 

9. Sweet Potato Gnocchi

vegetable, sweet, meat
Sofía Vainesman

Like the root vegetables and butternut squash, sweet potatoes go with the seasonal theme. 

10. Butternut Squash Parmigiana

sweet, bread, candy, meat, cake
Sofía Vainesman

How can you go wrong with anything parmigiana?

11. Fall Zucchette Pasta 

chocolate, sweet, candy
Sofía Vainesman

Or pasta?

12. Maple Leaf Cookies and Soft-Baked Snickerdoodles

potato, sweet, chocolate, cookie, candy, coffee
Sofía Vainesman

Some festive cookies to spruce up your cookie platter.

13. Halloween Joe Joe's Cookies 

coffee, beer, tea
Sofía Vainesman

Don't let the pumpkin face scare you, they're just chocolate and vanilla. 

14. Chocolate Chai & Almond Bar and Assorted Belgian Chocolate Pumpkins 

chocolate, cake
Sofía Vainesman

The bar has a nice chai flavor while the pumpkins are decorative (oh the irony). 

The Verdict: Pumpkin spice remains the flavor of fall, but there are still ways to get around it.
