13 Trader Joe's Foods You Have to Try This Fall

I just got my Trader Joe’s flyer in the mail and couldn’t wait to hit up the store to stock up on pumpkin products. I decided this year not to get some of the usual: pumpkin butter and pumpkin cream cheese as I figured those involve repeatedly spreading on something unhealthy (bagels or waffles). I love macarons and find that TJ's frozen macarons are affordable (versus going to a macaron shop) and low in calories. Every fall TJ's comes out with pumpkin macarons, but this year they changed the recipe and added a lot more spices. When I went apple picking a couple weeks ago I was dying to have some apple cider so I had to pick up a bottle at Trader Joes which is perfectly spiced!  I always bake my own pumpkins instead of buying it in a jar, tastes so much better. Here's my recipe for sugar pumpkins. Here's your must-have fall Trader Joe's shopping list:

Fall Zucchette Pasta (a pumpkin shaped pasta that derives its orange hue from butternut squash)
Pumpkin Ravioli
Sugar Pumpkin
Pumpkin Body Butter (see my review of the Coconut Body Butter)
Pumpkin greek yogurt
Apple Caramel yogurt
Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea
Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage
Pumpkin macarons 
Spice Cider
Sweet Potato Sage Gnocchi

Not photographed is the Cauliflower Rice which TJ's sells this both frozen and in the fridge with the vegetables. It's a great substitute for rice. I've made it myself from scratch before, but it's a lot of work!

  1. Okay, I'm not a big fan of pumpkin but so far everything looks super good. But, I am in the unfortunate part of being in Canada with no Trader Joe's in sight. Sigh. Have some sweet potato sage gnocchi and Pumpkin macarons for me. :( *SADFACE*

    Brb - drooling slightly. Lol

  6. I love Trader Joes, and I have yet to find anything there that I don't like! Great post!

  8. I hardly ever go to Trader Joes and now I definitely will have too!! Thanks for the awesome list!

  9. You forgot their pumpkin ice cream! It's delicious!

    1. Trader Joe's has a ton of pumpkin products, but I just wanted to focus on the healthier options.

  10. These all sound delish! My friends have been telling me that I need to start shopping at Trader Joes.

  11. What did you make with the pumpkin shaped pasta? I dont like cream sauce so TJs recommended sauce was not a fit. Any ideas other then spaghetti sauce? I was wondering if I could use cherry tomatoes, garlic, basil.... Thoughts?

    1. I'm the opposite of you, I prefer cream based sauces over tomato based. I just had the pasta last night!
