Williams Sonoma Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Bark ($20):
If you love the brand’s famous peppermint candy bark, you’re going to want to grab a tin (or two) of the pumpkin spice edition highlighting luscious semisweet dark chocolate, white chocolate, nutmeg, and pecans.
Dogfish Head Punkin Ale ($15/4-pack):
Thanks to a subtle blend of pumpkin, brown sugar, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon, this just might be our number one PS beer.
Sprouts Pumpkin Pizzelle Cookies ($4):
We love the pumpkin spice twist on this traditional Italian treat. You can eat it plain, but why not top it off with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream?
Skinny Dipped Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Spice Almonds ($5):
Whether you’re looking for a healthier snack option or simply something new, check out these Greek-yogurt-covered almonds. Sprinkled with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg, they have half the sugar of normal yogurt-covered almonds but taste equally scrumptious.
LARABAR Pumpkin Pie ($1):
This seasonal delight is made with dates, cashews, apples, almonds, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger for a quick, nutritious boost.
CLIF Bar Spiced Pumpkin Pie ($2):
We plan on taking our PS fix on the go with this nutritious bar featuring pumpkin flakes, dried apples, and organic rolled oats.
Bailey’s Pumpkin Spice Liqueur ($25):
Enjoy this sweet autumnal liqueur with coffee for an afternoon pick-me-up or add a splash of bourbon for a nice nightcap.
Thomas’ Pumpkin Spice Bagels ($5):
Made with real pumpkin puree, these chewy bagels taste scrumptious with a little butter and cinnamon sprinkled on top.
Wolferman’s Pumpkin Spice English Muffins ($35/6 packages):
These fluffy muffins made with pumpkin puree and spices are worth waking up five minutes earlier every morning to toast, add butter, and enjoy. If you can't imagine buying six packages of the same flavor, Wolferman's lets you mix and match from its 16 different English muffin flavors.
Harry & David Maple Pumpkin Layer Cake ($55:)
This takes the cake in autumn decadence, featuring a spiced pumpkin cake topped with cinnamon maple cream cheese frosting and caramelized pecans.
KIND Caramel Pumpkin Spice Bar ($1):
With only five grams of sugar in each bar, the caramel and pumpkin spice combo makes for one guiltless midday snack.
Urban Remedy Pumpkin Pie ($7)
If you’re looking for a less sinful dessert, this raw, gluten-free pie is a yummy option. It’s made of a creamy butternut squash filling and whipped cashew cream on a flaxseed crust to create a sumptuous, yet healthier take on the normal holiday fare.
Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale ($15/case):
Light and refreshing with just a hint of pumpkin spice, this seasonal flavor ought to be stocked year-round, at least in our humble opinion.
RXBAR Pumpkin Spice ($2):
This protein-packed bar is the best mix of sweet, savory, and spicy. With 12 grams of protein, it’s made with only the good stuff and is an ideal snack for a fun autumn hike.
Pumpkin Spice Cheerios ($3):
The brand’s seasonal twist is made of pumpkin puree, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Needless to say, there was not a drop of cereal milk wasted when we noshed on this fall-favorite flavor.
Halo Top Pumpkin Pie ($4):
Top this off with some fresh whipped cream, and you’re in for a festive treat. Psst, did we mention there are only 360 calories in each pint?
Captain Morgan Jack-O-Blast ($16):
Though a little sweet on its own, when paired with Trader Joe's Organic Tea and Lemonade, this PS-rum drink becomes pure autumnal heaven.
Pumpkin Spice Noosa Mates ($3):
Topped with Purely Elizabeth granola, white chocolate chips, and pumpkin seeds, this yogurt tastes like a delicious, personal-sized pumpkin pie — with *way* fewer calories.
SmashMallow Pumpkin Pie ($4):
These marshmallows taste good on their own, but we love them 10 times s'more
when toasted and squished between chocolate and graham crackers.
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Cookie Straws ($7/container):
We pretty much want to dunk these delicate white-chocolate-and-pumpkin-spice wafers into everything, but a white mocha is a great place to start.
