Who else here is a huge pumpkin spice fan?
I mean, you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t, right?
Every year, right around Fall, the grocery stores unleash a huge array of pumpkin spice items for us to try and enjoy. Some are amazing, and some are just…. eh, okay. But you still feel like you have to try all of them, right?
For the sake of science, I went out and bought 12 different pumpkin spice items to review for you, so you know which are a must-try and which to stay away from. I also did one for 2017, so check it out here! None of these are actually bad, but some are definitely more pumpkin-y than others! Here is my list of top pumpkin spice items of 2018:
Yoplait Whips Pumpkin Pie yogurt: This was actually really good! It’s whipped yogurt, so it’s light and fluffy; and this really tasted like pumpkin pie. For around 50 cents each, it’s not a bad deal.
Chobani Pumpkin yogurt: I like Chobani because their yogurt is typically smooth and creamy; and this one was no exception. It was a little less sweet than the Yoplait Whips, but still amazing. I’ll have to find some pumpkin granola to put in this!
Chobani Flip Pumpkin Harvest Crisp: Yogurt is one of my favorite foods for any time of day; and the Flip yogurts already come with a bit of crunchy stuff to add. This was pumpkin yogurt with little pie crusts and other stuff. It was super good!
Dannon Light & Fit Pumpkin Pie Greek Yogurt: Seriously, what’s with all the yogurt? This one is my favorite by far. It’s only 80 calories but has 12 grams of protein. It’s nice and sweet but not overpowering.
Millville Pumpkin Crispy Os: I’ll admit, as soon as I saw these on sale at Aldi I immediately threw a box into my cart. I loved the Pumpkin Cheerios last year, and these are basically the exact same, at a lower price of $1.99.
Philadelphia Pumpkin Cream Cheese: While a perfect bagel topper, I also like to put cream cheese on toast! The Philadelphia brand is smooth and gives you a lot per serving. The pumpkin flavor really shines through! Now just put this cream cheese on a Pumpkin Spice bagel and see what happens.
Krispy Kreme Pumpkin Donuts: I’m a sucker for donuts, especially after a long run or a race. These little guys are cake-like, which are my favorite; they’re super soft and taste just like pumpkin spice. They’re everything a cake donut should be.
Frosted Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts: Who else feels jipped that Pop Tarts come in a package of two but a serving is only one? I only eat them as a treat rather than breakfast. These ones were hard to find, so I had to snag a box at Target immediately after searching like 4 different stores. And they really do taste like pumpkin pie!
Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Swirl Bread: I tried this last year too, and for some reason I just can’t taste the pumpkin. It tastes more like cinnamon to me. Still delicious, but not really a pumpkin item for me!
Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Baked Cookies: Oh my goodness, these were amazing. They’re so soft and melty, and the little cheesecake chips just make the entire cookie.
Coffee Mate Natural Bliss Pumpkin Spice creamer: I’ve tried other kinds of pumpkin spice creamer before, but never this type. It has a simple ingredient list and has a great pumpkin flavor. I put one tablespoon of this in my coffee with a packet of Splenda and it’s perfect!
Keebler Fudge Stripe Pumpkin Spice Cookies: We really liked these, too. They were slightly crumbly but had a good pumpkin spice flavor.
Which pumpkin spice item is your favorite this year? Let me know in the comments so I can try something new!

Trader Joe's pumpkin bagels and Pumpkin Joe-Joe's (like oreos)! I know that is a little out of the way for you, but try them if you can!

Oh my! Trader Joe's is a 30-minute drive for me but I may need to take a trip up there next week to try some of these. =)
