EPIC Trader Joe's Visit-PUMPKIN Everything!

I was in Austin (yes, Texas) last week and was out exploring on my own one day (full trip report is coming) when I spotted a Trader Joe's. It was hot, the store was cool and I was on the hunt for the elusive Eggplant Hummus. I've heard amazing things about this hummus but it's not available on the East Coast (at least not around me).
Well, lookie here! I found it. I just had to buy it (with some carrots and my favorite savory rice crackers) to try it for myself.  While I was there, I figured I'd check out the seasonal items to see what TJ's had in store for me back home. They've gone pumpkin and fall crazy and I love it!
 Pumpkin cinnamon rolls!
 Pumpkin O's!
Chocolate Mousse Pumpkins!
 Pumpkin Chai Spiced Loaf!

 Pumpkin Bagels!

 Gourds and pumpkins!
 Pumpkin pancake and waffle mix!

Autumnal Harvest Creamy Pumpkin Sauce!
Cold Pressed Fuji Apple Spiced Cider!
A whole section devoted to pumpkin goodness!
 I loved this dorm essentials end cap too!  I also spotted some other items that I haven't tried yet at my local TJ's.
 Dolmas Vine Leaves stuffed with Rice.  I've heard these are really good.
 I'd probably like this if it didn't have beets.
 This is another thing I've wanted to try. I will have to look for it at home.
 This salad sounds amazing!
Sprouted whole grain pizza crust and it was huge!
 Coconut cashews, yes please!
 Shelf stable veggies. I hope they have these at my local TJ's.
 Ok this is a cruel joke. I can't stand beets but for those who like them...
 Much better..carrot cake spread?!
 Now this Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese sounds amazing!
 Petite Pumpkin Spice Cookies!
 Pumpkin Joe-Joe's!
 Pumpkin Biscotti!
 Pumpkin Cranberry Crisps!
 3 Seed Sweet Potato Crackers!
 These aren't seasonal but I've heard they taste like Thin Mints.
 Oh yeah..Pumpkin Ice Cream!
 Pumpkin Spice Coffee Pods. These are good, I tried them last year.
 Pumpkin Spice Coffee in the can.
 Lots of new (to me) beverages. Cocoa Almond Cashew!
 Matcha Almond!
 Blueberry Lavender Almond?!
 Apple Cider Foaming Hand Soap!
 Pumpkin Body Butter!
 Pumpkin Tortilla Chips!
 Ghosts & Bats Crispy Potato Snacks!
Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips!
I need to get to Trader Joe's STAT!

Ok! You found a lot more pumpkin items then I saw this past weekend. I will tell you I bought those shelf veggies, they look so good but we haven’t tried them yet! I’ve had that Pepita salad kit and it is SO good! We also have tried the blueberry lavender beverage...it was good but make sure you adhere to the date. R had it 5 days after opening and it was lumpy (and the sell be date was weeks away). We probably won’t try that one again!

OMG! I can't believe all the pumpkin stuff. My kids love the TJ Jo Jos! I love the coconut cashews! I mix them with plain cashews so I am not devouring 400 calories in a tablespoon! ha! Fun trip! laura

Hi Heather, I can't wait to see and read your post on Texas.
Oh Heather, now I want to go to TJ's for some pumpkin! You did a great post and I love everything for the fall season and it all looks so good. I wish it was closer to my home or I'd go today.

Wow, they do have a lot of pumpkin stuff! I'd love to try that Carrot Cake Spread. There's not a Trader Joe's in my town so I haven't shopped at one yet.
