If you follow me via Instagram Stories {@louellareese} you may have seen a pumpkin party Morgan and I had last weekend. We made our ways through the Trader Joe’s aisles and picked out everything pumpkin that tempted us in any way. There were A LOT of items! Trader Joe’s definitely does pumpkin. We had the BEST time taste testing all of the different items and I highly recommend having a pumpkin tasting party of your own! You won’t regret it and you’ll definitely find a new favorite, as I have. Below you’ll find all of our reviews – our favorites and the ones we believe you can pass on. Check out Morgan’s post here too. 

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Product Reviews 

Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s– A fun spin on Trader Joe’s famous cookie. Overall the cookie sandwich is super sweet with very pumpkin-y icing. The icing takes control of the cookie, which is actually a very good thing! 

Pumpkin shaped cookie – We actually completely forgot to dive into this. Whoops! I’m going to say it is probably very sweet with no actual pumpkin flavor as it was simply a sugar cookie with icing. 

Petite Pumpkin Spice Cookies– Surprisingly these little treats have no real pumpkin flavor. All you can taste is the heavy coating of icing and sugar! If you’re a fan of the icing covered animal cookies, you will love these cookies.

Pumpkin Biscotti – I’m not a huge biscotti fan. Mainly due to the fact that I don’t drink coffee and I feel like that’s kind of required to love biscotti cookies. I tried a bite though and tasted the sweet pumpkin. Therefore, these do pack some pumpkin flavor and would be delicious in your coffee, if you’re a fan. 

Pumpkin Cranberry Crisp – I love these crisps throughout the year as Trader Joe’s always has them. Just without the pumpkin flavor. However, the pumpkin flavor really isn’t too strong and it doesn’t hit you until the end! You do really taste the spice though. With the cranberries, spices, and pumpkin kick at the end, the cracker is basically fall in cracker form! 

Country Pumpkin Spice Granola – My love for granola is pretty strong! If there’s ever a granola parfait on the menu, I’m going to order it. Therefore, I was extremely excited to try this pumpkin spice granola. Luckily, it did not disappoint! So sweet and savory with a little pumpkin kick. Really the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor.

Pumpkin Tortilla Chips – Personally, I wasn’t too sure about these, pumpkin tortilla chips, what? But they were surprisingly pretty good. Although, the chips did not have too much of a pumpkin flavor, they did have a lot of spice. Cinnamon and nutmeg to be exact. Which was a fun little surprise and made the chip a little sweet vs. savory. 

Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramels – These bad boys are sinful! Covered in extremely rich dark chocolate and quite salty! Truthfully, there is no pumpkin flavor. Nor did I really notice any spice. Sadly, these are a pumpkin fail! Although, they are really good, aside from having no pumpkin flavor. 

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins – Okay these muffins are AMAZING!! They have that fresh, natural pumpkin favor. Icing is quite literally the icing on the cake! Also, these muffins are very hearty! If you eat one of them for breakfast, you’ll be full for hours.
