Almost all parts of fall feel like a breathe of fresh air after a long, hot summer, from the sweaters to the scents. But perhaps the best part? The food and flavors that come with it.
You know we’re suckers for Trader Joe’s—they have some of the tastiest, most unique foods out there, and it’s impossible to leave the store without something new that you love each and every time you go (not to mention it’s the safest COVID-19 grocery shopping experience I’ve had). And every year when we say goodbye to August, we count down the days until Trader Joe’s releases their coveted fall foods—and ladies, that time has come.
From the cult-favorites to 2020’s new additions, we scoured the aisles to show you every single fall food Trader Joe’s is offering this year (spoiler alert: we’d bet they’ll make you head there before the end of the day). Happy pumpkin season!

14. Pecan Pumpkin Oatmeal
This oatmeal is an office favorite for good reason: it’s an easy, quick fall breakfast that will leave you feeling like you just made something from scratch. It isn’t too sweet, and the pecan addition gives it a little something extra.
