While the latter half of the calendar year brings cooler weather and fun holidays, it also brings a variety of fall-themed items to grocery stores. Aisles are now filled with all things pumpkin spice and other cozy-flavored goods, and people cannot wait to get their hands on their favorite fall treats. 

One of the most popular grocery stores today is Trader Joe’s. People love the small-business feel the grocery store chain has. Another reason for Trader Joe’s popularity is because they launch new items regularly, so customers are never bored. People eagerly await the new products that come out during fall every year. Ranging from sweet to savory, everyone is sure to be delighted by Trader Joe’s new 2021 fall items. 

Want to spice up your breakfast? Trader Joe’s is now selling pumpkin pancake and waffle mix. There is also a gluten free option. These pancakes and waffles will act as a strong reminder to not skip breakfast. 

If you are craving something spicy, try Trader Joe’s mini spicy pumpkin samosas. A fun twist on a traditional Indian snack, these delectable pastries have a savory pumpkin flavor to go with masala, cumin, and coriander. These make great appetizers for when inviting guests over. 

Trader Joe’s vanilla and chocolate Joe-Joe’s have now upgraded! These delicious confections have crunchy pumpkin cookies with pumpkin flavored cream in the middle. They are a wonderful fall snack to enjoy. 

If you are stuck on what to have for dinner, Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli will be great. All you have to do is boil the ravioli in water for a few minutes, toss with your favorite sauce and serve! If that is still not enough pumpkin for you, use Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce. 

If you have been wanting to bake your own bread after seeing it all over TikTok, but do not have enough time, the Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix is the perfect solution for you! These warm, baked goods are just the thing you need on a chilly, fall day. Even better, you can add your own mix-ins like nuts or chocolate chips. There is even a gluten-free alternative. 

Not a fan of pumpkin? Maybe you will enjoy their apple cider donuts. These sweet and doughy treats are fried and then hand-dusted with cinnamon and sugar. 

Whatever your favorite flavors and snacks are, you are sure to find it at Trader Joe’s!
