5FF: Favorite Pumpkin Items This Season (So Far)

You can bet that I was already out hunting for pumpkin flavored goodies at the end of August so there’s not much left that I’m still looking to buy with the exception of the Pumpkin Spice Jif peanut butter because that sounds GREAT.  I also haven’t spotted Pumpkin Spice Oreo’s yet and I LOVED them last season so if I come across those I’ll be stocking up for sure.  I had pre-written this post before yesterday when Barb of You Fancy Me Mad posted hers and now I’ll also be searching for pumpkin spice English muffins!  Instead of telling you what I’m looking forward to buy, I’m going to tell you the best pumpkin things I’ve tried so far this season.  Although, I may have to make a Pumpkin-to-buy-list after seeing everyone else’s posts!


1) Pumpkin Spice Mini Wheats – YAS. I adore these. I only like the tiniest bit of milk in my cereal and it was the perfect combo with this delicious breakfast / all the time food.  Pumpkin spice really *worked* on classic mini wheats and I’ll probably be getting another box before the season ends because mine is just about empty ^.^

2) Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s – I really enjoyed these! They differ a lot from the Pumpkin Spice Oreo’s but it’s not a bad thing.  The cookie part is pumpkin flavored and thicker than your typical Oreo.  The cream is where the spice comes in but my one complaint is that there’s too much of it.  I actually took the cream out and ate only the cookie portion on a few of them.


3) Keebler Fudge Stripe Pumpkin Spice Cookies – These are incredibly satisfying.  It’s like putting everything you love about Fall in your mouth.  They’re definitely on the spicier side (think essence of Chai tea) and the white chocolate fudge stripe adds a sweetness that compliments the spice perfectly.  I’ve been managing to eat only 3-4 of these at a time because I really want to savor this treat.

4) Pumpkin Spice Latte M&M’s – While I do miss the traditional Pumpkin Spice M&M’s, the latte ones are pretty good too! They’re not overly pumpkin spicey and they’re really more Latte M&M’s in my opinion.  Plus the M&M on the packaging looks super stylish in her scarf.

5) Tazo Chai Pumpkin Spice Tea – This is such a staple in my household during the fall.  It’s a much healthier and cheaper alternative to the PSL and I savor every cup I make.

Don’t forget that next week starts our 5 Fandom Friday Photo a Day Challenge on Instagram!

    Your take on PSL M&Ms is perfect. Basically my thoughts exactly. But they still tasted very chocolatey, which was pretty nice!
