It is Pumpkin season at Trader Joe's.

It was family movie night at home.  We packed the kids into the car and off we went to Trader Joe's to indulge in some snacks.  As we entered the store, we found the absolute best prices on pumpkins, ready for carving.  For only $2.99, you can pick a medium size pumpkin perfect for cooking or decorating this harvest season.  Along with the the best priced pumpkins in town, there were many other pumpkin products ready for customers to buy.  Let me tell you about a few of the items we discovered.  Pumpkin O's cereal, Pumpkin Butter, Organic Pumpkin Toaster Pastries, Pumpkin Spiced Seeds, and Pumpkin Pancake Mix, just to name a few.

The best part about our trip to Trader Joe's was all of the great pumpkin treats we found.  It felt as thought each aisle had a pumpkin product that called our name.  We purchased Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Cereal and Pumpkin Toasted Pastries.  These were not snacks for our movie adventure but they seemed to be calling our name.  So, in the shopping basket they went to be brought home and tested by our expert taste testers.

Shown above: Pumpkin O's cereal, Pumpkin Butter, toaster pastries with pumpkin lined the aisles ready for a great breakfast.  Yum, Yum, what a great way to wake up.

Chocolate and pumpkin makes every evening a celebration.  We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw these sweet treats.  Pumpkin Brittle, Iced Pumpkin Scone cookies and Assorted Belgium Chocolates with Pumpkin.  They looked so good they would even be perfect to give as gifts.

Another great pumpkin find was the Oatmeal with pecans and pumpkin.  This instant oatmeal looks perfect for people who want a quick bite of the Fall season.

Fall would not be complete without the crunch of chips and pumpkin seeds.  In the chip isle, we found Pumpkin Tortilla chips and Pita Crisps.  Near the registers, they dispalyed Sweet Pumpkin Seeds to pack as a snack.  All looked crunchy and delicious. 

The trip to the store was supposed to be a junk-food adventure for our family movie night.  With all of the Trader Joe's options, it made us think about fun, nutritious foods that are currently in season.  Head over to your local Trader Joe's for some of these great seasonal culinary items.
