I”m one who LOVES all things pumpkin (I’m a total sucker) and I’ve bought way too many pumpkin spice items in the past week. I’m 4 for 6! Here’s what I’ve loved and two misses.
The Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter is way too sweet. I wouldn’t buy it again. I can tolerate it again mixed into oatmeal but if I can’t spread it on toast, I don’t want it.
This Quest pumpkin pie protein bar was blah. Just not much flavor and was so hard to bite into and chew.
The Trader Joe’s gluten-free pumpkin pancakes were great!! Super quick to mix up and not cloyingly sweet. Big fan! I need to stock up before they’re out of season.
I saw this Bigelow Pumpkin Spice tea and had to have it. I was bummed when I got home and realized it had caffeine (black tea is the base). But, I’ve actually really enjoyed it in the morning. I wouldn’t say in place of my coffee, but I did have a little less coffee yesterday and had a cup of this instead.
Of course when I saw this decaf pumpkin tea, I had to buy it. It’s AWESOME. I’ve been enjoying it before bed when my sweet tooth hits. (Sometimes I just give into some ice cream though–lately I’ve been loving Arctic Zero and Ciao Bella Raspberry Sorbets.)
Or, I give into my sweet tooth with one of these little bites of heaven. These mini pumpkin ice cream ginger cookie sandwiches are freaking delicious. I never would have bought a box because I don’t tolerate gluten and dairy well but after the Trader Joe’s employee let me try one (he opened a box after I asked him what his favorite pumpkin thing in the store was – TJ’s is the best), I HAD to buy a box to take home. Seriously guys, go find them. They are small so having just one at a time doesn’t cause too much digestive distress and it’s toooootally worth it.
What pumpkin things have you been loving lately? Any fails?
