Who Loves Fall? Trader Joes does.

Like most, I get really excited over seasonal items.  Although one current seasonal product that I don't bend over backwards for is the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks.  I know, I am so crazy!  

My last visit to Trader Joes was 2-3 weeks ago, but when I went tonight I was hit with pumpkins galore!  Pumpkins at the front for sale, pumpkin goodies on the shelves.  It was a good time.  When I saw the Country Pumpkin Spice Granola, I instantly remembered how much I loved to eat it with my oatmeal a few years ago.  How did I forget about this delicious granola?  Was I hiding under a rock the past couple years?  I swear I've been shopping at Trader Joes pretty consistently. 

That little tub of Pumpkin Cream Cheese caught my eye.  This is definitely new.  The employee working the sample station saw me pick it up and yelled out, "It's really good!" like she could see the decision making gears turning in my head.  I'm easy to convince sometimes, even if it gets a nod from an employee.  

I can't really explain the reasoning behind the Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix.  I'm all for baking from scratch, but sometimes it's nice to have a box of these handy for some quick treats sans baking frustration (something that I experience time to time).  

Seasonal items like these makes me fall in love with Trader Joes over and over again.  I'm really quick to notice new products by them based on their packaging so when I see something new/reintroduced I often consider getting it.  Now who's excited for Candy Cane Joe-Joe's?  I am!
