  1. We happened to be in a TJ’s where the free sample was pumpkin ice cream. It was SO deliciously creamy and rich, we ended up buying 3 tubs – one for us, and two for hostess gifts for later in the week. Did they have that last year? And if so, how did we miss it????

      Hi Donna – I don’t remember the pumpkin ice cream from last year, but that sure doesn’t mean they didn’t have it! The pumpkin pie ice cream in the mochi was so good and creamy. I’m quite impressed with their ice cream.

    Oh, I forgot how much I missed the pumpkin toaster pastries. And I’m definitely getting a danish ring if I see one. Plus some ice cream. And mochi ice cream. I’m so excited it’s fall!!

      Hi Leanne – I have seriously been waiting so long for the toaster pastries to come back! I got the strawberry ones the rest of the year but the pumpkin ones are truly my favorite. They are so much better than name brand Pop Tarts. I’m excited it’s fall, too, and that it’s actually been cooler these last few days.

    OMG Pumpkin mochi!? I must try this! I never even knew Trader Joe’s had their own mochi brand.

  4. The pumpkin caramel Kringle is from OH Bakery in Wisconsin. Interesting flavor. I’ve only had the Kringle once before during Christmas. It was a gift from former SAT vendors who were from Wisconsin. They wanted to give their clients a “taste of home”. Pumpkin is THE fall flavor I suppose. I know this is a time of year that you enjoy very much! ๐Ÿ™‚ I remember seeing pumpkin flavored dog treats at Target last year!

      Hi CC – Thanks for giving the low-down on the Kringle! I remember looking at the package and I almost put it into my cart but wanted to wait for the weekend when Jake and some kiddos would be around to help finish it off. I know pumpkin isn’t totally your thing, you’ll have to bear with the rest of us, ha ha! Jake’s dogs like pumpkin stuff but I don’t think Maya does. Too bad, I probably would have bought those dog treats.

  5. I absolutely love their Pumpkin Raviolis ๐Ÿ˜€ they have so much flavor all I do is brown butter them and eat ๐Ÿ˜€
