P.S. Don’t wait to purchase these items until your next trip in because before you know it, they’ll be sold out until next year!

1. Pumpkin Bagels

Pumpkin bagels are a must for your next TJ’s shop. With warming spiced flavors, they pair perfectly with a PSL to create the ultimate pumpkin experience. Try it with some cream cheese on top (opt for TJ’s pumpkin cream cheese if you’re a diehard pumpkin fan) for a sweet ‘n savory combo, or let your sweet tooth reign with crunchy nut butter on top and thank us later!

2. Pumpkin Spiced Teeny Tiny Pretzels

The name says it all – these teeny tiny pretzels are coated with a rich white chocolate pumpkin spice layer accompanied by the most epic salty flavor combination that is going to have your tastebuds singing and coming back for a bite (or two!) more!

3. Mini Hold the Cone Ice Cream Cones: Pumpkin Ginger

Continuing down the pumpkin path, we couldn’t forget these adorable pumpkin ginger ice cream cones which are a special Fall extension of the year round available chocolate and vanilla flavors. These mini cones are truly the perfect bite-sized dessert, and is something that you won’t know you needed in your life until you try it.

4. Butternut Squash Mac ‘n Cheese

We interrupt the pumpkin programming to bring you this delicious recommendation. If you love mac ‘n cheese, you’ll be obsessed with this ooey, gooey, and oh so delicious take on the infamous beloved classic! If you see one, grab one, as these frozen bad boys don’t stay in stock for long.

The LA Girl Tip: Add in a cooked protein (our pick is TJ’s chicken apple sausage) and some grilled veggies to spice up the mac!

5. Non-Dairy Oat Beverage (Maple + Pumpkin)

For our non-dairy milk lovers, consider adding these flavored oat beverages into the lineup of your morning coffee routine. With a sweetness that’s not too overwhelming, trust us when we say you will be obsessed with these and that they’ll become instant favorites.

The LA Girl Tip: Combine a single or double shot of espresso with your flavored oat beverage of choice + a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin spice for the ultimate Fall beverage!

6. Cinnamon Bun Spread

Calling all cinna-holics! This cinnamon bun spread tastes just like the delicious filling of a cinnamon bun/roll, and we can’t get enough.

7. Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix

Alright, back to pumpkin, pumpkin! Whip out your favorite baker’s apron and get that oven preheated to prepare for these pre-made, quick and easy cookies. If you’re an oatmeal hater, you may just be swayed by the soft, chewy, and delectable texture that will have you smiling from ear to ear.

8. Pumpkin Spice Hummus

Yep, you read that right, this is a pumpkin lover’s savory heaven, and the perfect dip that you can bring to any Fall gathering you may have on the calendar.
