Trader Joe’s October (Pumpkin) Edition
With pumpkin season upon us, I had to visit Trader Joe’s, which each year manages to top its previous year of pumpkin flavored goods. There’s a few non-pumpkin items in this post too!
By far, my favorite of the pumpkin goodies this year, but then I really love mochi so I might be a little biased. The orange colored mochi skin is filled with a rich pumpkin spice ice cream. So good! I need to go back and get more.
We really enjoyed this too. The waffles have a light pumpkin spice flavor.
Pumpkin Seed Brittle
I was worried this would just be regular brittle with some pumpkin spice seasoning, but the pumpkin seeds embedded inside really gives this a seasonal feel.
Pumpkins and Gourds
I also bought some decorative pumpkins and gourds.
I was trying to show restraint on this trip, but here are some other pumpkin finds I found at Trader Joe’s.
Not pictured in my purchases is pumpkin butter. I get it every year and unfortunately already finished using mine in some recipe experimenting. I need to restock!
Brussels Sprouts Stalk
I love getting the Brussels sprouts stalks here. Trader Joe’s is the only place I know that sells it this way. It makes for a great centerpiece and you can roast the whole thing, but I’ve so far just breaking off small amounts at a time for a meal.
Cookies & Creme Cookie Butter

Okay, so I haven’t purchased this one yet, but I plan on going back to Trader Joe’s to get it. This photo is from my friend, who alerted me to this item. I can’t believe I haven’t seen or heard of it before and I’m excited to try it out!.
Did I miss any other must-get items for my next trip? Happy weekend!
