For the past few months I have made it my mission to start shopping at Trader Joe’s. That probably sounds super weird, but everyone raves about the goodies they find there and I always find very little that excites me. With all of that being said, I decided to go on a Trader Joe’s fall haul shopping trip in search of autumnal delights. For those of you who don’t know, fall is my favorite time of year and I decided this was a good opportunity to try Trader Joe’s out again.
Honestly, I am super excited with everything that I found! Not only are some of the products I picked up perfect for fall gatherings and parties, but they sounds delicious. In a few weeks I will write a follow up post about product reviews, so stay tuned! It may seem like I gathered a lot at the store, but it was a “haul” so…
What I Bought…
Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli
I am kind of skeptical to try these, but they looked so autumnal and many people I follow on social media are crazy about them so I wanted to give them a try.
Autumnal Harvest Creamy Pasta Sauce
Something had to accompany the ravioli… right? Plus, I love a good creamy sauce.
Hold the Cone! Pumpkin Ginger mini ice cream cones
I am so excited to try these! I love ginger and I love that they are mini. I can have one and put the box away, haha.
Apple Cider Fruit Spread
I’ve had Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter before and liked it so I figured this would be good, too. I wanted to get some products that were not pumpkin flavored just to mix it up.
Organic Frosted Toaster Pastries in pumpkin flavor
My husband really enjoys the strawberry flavored pastries so I figured he might enjoy these, too!
These are something I am hoping to put out for guests when I do not feel like actually baking anything or don’t have the time. I have a friend of two over for coffee at least once a week and these would be perfect to pair with a latte.
I heard that this was the best cider around. I am very excited to try this both hot and cold!
Fall Leaf Corn Tortilla Chips
Okay, I have to be honest: these were the primary reason I went to Trader Joe’s and decided to do a fall haul! One of my favorite bloggers was talking about these and they looked amazing. Not only do they sound promising taste wise, but the tortilla chips are in the shapes of fall leaves! These sound perfect for a party! (Or me just sitting on the couch watching a horror movie alone…)
Fall Harvest Salsa
…well I needed something to go with the chips! Honestly I am a little skeptical of this salsa because I am a huge fan of regular traditional salsa but I am trying to keep an open mind.
Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix
I really enjoy pumpkin bread so I wanted to try theirs. I will probably add oats to the top for a little flair and extra flavor and texture.
Joe Joe’s Halloween Cookies
These were shaped like jack-o-lanters so naturally I had to get them.
Chocolatissimo Premium Harvest Collection Belgian Chocolates
These just looked really pretty. They actually look like corn on the Cobb, pumpkins, etc. These are another goodie that I will probably put out when I have friends over the coffee!
Pumpkin Cranberry Crisps
I am so excited to try these! I think these would best be paired with a creamy goat cheese on a platter. I like that they are fruity.
Haunted House Chocolate Cookie Kit
This looked so cool! We always decorate a gingerbread house during Christmastime and I love the idea of decorating a haunted house! I think this could be a really fun family activity to do while watching a spooky movie.
Mini Cinnamon Broom
I alway get one of these around the fall!
…and a pumpkin!
They had pumpkins on sale! So how could I not pick one up?
