Trader Joe’s is still in the depths of Pumpkinpalooza as I like to call it. Their rabid fans of all things pumpkin have come to a head about this time of year (October) with no end until Thanksgiving and Christmas rapidly takes over in November. I would guess that about 25% of all products in the store right now have pumpkin or pumpkin spice flavor in them as I slowly turn a light shade of orange from eating so much of that squash.
Here is another seasonal item that seems to come into Trader Joe’s almost every year and this year is no exception. I have never really tried this before since I don’t eat a lot of pancakes, or I should say our family hasn’t. Well, things changed and I have two little boys who love pancakes now and we eat a ton of the regular Trader Joe’s Multigrain Baking and Pancake mix. I think it makes some of the best pancakes out there!
The fall season brings with it a cozy array of flavors and none so iconic as pumpkin. With the markets brimming with pumpkin-inspired products, Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix stands out, promising a warm, aromatic baking experience. I recently tried my hand at this mix, and here’s a detailed account of the making and tasting process.
Trader Joe’s Howling Gourds Pumpkin Ale Beer. I’ve been a beer aficionado for many years. I even thought about opening my own specialty beer shop long before the current craft beer craze, but thankfully I didn’t. Trader Joe’s has a long history of contracting out to breweries to make them seasonal beers.
It’s the height of pumpkin season at Trader Joe’s and we know how they love to stuff pumpkin spices in everything and in this case Trader Joe’s has put your favorite pumpkin spices in Gluten Free bagels! Trader Joe’s has released these for several years in a row now and they stay very popular.
I’d seen these bagels on several other websites and was wondering why it wasn’t in the bagel section of my local Trader Joe’s. Over the past couple of weeks, I kept going over and looking at the bagels and going, hmmm… not in my Trader Joe’s. Little did I know there was a whole Gluten Free bread section on the other end of the bread aisle…. I don’t do much Gluten Free food, but I know how many of you out there love it. Based on the amount of buzz these bagels were causing, I’m glad I found it.
