Tomorrow marks the official first day of fall, which means it's now acceptable to buy everything PUMPKIN. But to be honest, it's been acceptable for us since Starbucks dropped their Pumpkin Spice Latte last month. Whether you've waited until now, or have been indulging in everything pumpkin since August, we're here to let you in on all our favorite seasonal pumpkin spice products by store. 


Target is home to one of our absolute favorite seasonal drinks, Califia Farms Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Coffee. It can usually be found on an end cap near the beverage section. Once you spot it, you must grab it. Although this is an alternative to milk and is an almond milk drink, the flavor and consistency remains creamy and packed with flavor. It's the perfect fall beverage. If you're looking for an addition to your coffee, rather than a full blown beverage, we would definitely recommend Califia's Pumpkin Spice Creamer as well.

If you're new to the area you might not be familiar with Fred Meyer, a chain grocery store only found in the western U.S, but it too has some great fall finds. To begin, their fall Keurig selection is one of our favorites and a must to stock up on for fall. Located usually on their end caps, you will find an assortment of Starbucks Keurigs in various blends such as maple pecan, fall blend and of course pumpkin spice!

Next on our list here are the Belvita Pumpkin Spice. These are the perfect grab and go snack for all fall long. They are specifically designed for breakfast, but we honestly feel there is no wrong time of the day for one. 

Last on our list here is the Chobani Pumpkin Spice Greek Yogurt. We understand if you may feel a little weary on this product, but you have to trust us. It's the perfect amount of pumpkin spice and greek yogurt, not too sweet and not too sour that regular greek yogurt can often taste like. Plus a little secret we have is to crush one of the Belvita Pumpkin Spice on top to take it to the next level.


Trader Joe's is truly one of the best places when it comes to seasonal treats. We're talking pumpkin empanadas, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin protein smoothie and tons of other options. But our absolute favorite pumpkin spice products at Tj's are the pumpkin ginger beer, the pumpkin pecan oatmeal and the pumpkin ginger mini cones.

To start the pumpkin ginger beer is the perfect amount of sweet and ginger and is deliciously crisp. It's perfect by itself, but if you go to the Trader Joe's website they also have a delicious fall cocktail which is their pumpkin pie spiced mule which combines the beverage with vodka, fresh ginger and Trader Joe's pumpkin pie spice. 

Next on the list is the pumpkin pecan oatmeal. This instant oatmeal is  a mix of oats, pumpkin and pecans all swirled into a delicious bowl. The heartiness of the pecans takes this oatmeal to the next level. This oatmeal does run a bit on the sweet side, so if you don't love overly sweet breakfasts, this might not be for you. Or we would recommend mixing in a pack of regular instant oatmeal to cut the sweetness.

Finally it's time for one of the most adorable and delicious fall items at Trader Joe's, the Pumpkin Ginger Mini Cones. These cones really are miniature so it's hard to not be in awe of the cuteness of the desert. But moving on to flavor they're packed with it. A mini scoop of pumpkin ice cream is coated with white confectionary and sits upon a ginger flavored mini cone.   If you're not a fan of ginger, these may not be the treat for you, but if you're, consider yourself warned to buy multiple boxes.
