Say what you want about the packed parking lot and general hectic busyness of Trader Joe's on an average day. We give it a complete pass during the fall season.

We get it. It's bursting with an autumn cheer from September through the holidays. It's even got the pumpkins and mums piled up at the entrance to prove it. However, inside is where you'll find the real festive display.

Trader Joe's finally released its collection of pumpkin products, specifically for the fall season, and the lineup doesn't disappoint. From sweet treats to savory sauces, these pumpkin-flavored foods deserve to be on your grocery list, stat. You might even find some fall-baking shortcuts you didn't know you needed.

Check out some of our favorite Trader Joe's fall pumpkin products below.

1. Pumpkin Joe-Joe's

As Trader Joe's take on Oreos, these sandwich cookies are rocking a fall-tastic makeover that has them looking and tasting like a sweet pumpkin cookie with pumpkin créme in the middle. They've got the perfect balance of subtle pumpkin spice flavor that doesn't go too in your face. The only issue is that your box of Pumpkin Joe-Joe's might disappear too quickly.

2. Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix

Who doesn't need a slice of pumpkin bread come October? A fan-favorite purchase, this pumpkin bread mix can easily be customized each time differently with chocolate chips, toasted pecans, or anything you can imagine. Most importantly, you cut down on all the prep work but still reap the tasty benefits. We can get on board with that sort of fall baking. It also comes in a gluten-free option.

3. Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli

If you ever thought a main dinner dish made with pumpkin sounded weird, prepare to be amazed. This pumpkin ravioli is a must-try. We suggest pairing it with a simple browned butter sauce, sage, and chicken sausage for a comforting meal that you'll want to repeat again and again.

4. Pumpkin Rolls with Pumpkin Spice Icing

Trader Joe's officially upped the ante with pumpkin-flavored rolls with spiced icing for fall, as if cinnamon rolls weren't already cozy enough. Just imagine the aromas coming out of the oven. Serve warm, and you'll be heading back for seconds. (And stock up!)

5. Pumpkin Bisque

Look no further when the weather drops low enough to crave a warm soup. You can have this sitting pretty in the pantry. It's rich and creamy, made with pumpkin purée, heavy cream, tahini, honey, and classic fall spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Trader Joe's tested several recipe iterations to perfect the ideal fall soup, and this one came out on top.

6. Pumpkin Spice Espresso Beans

It has all the flavor of a PSL (pumpkin spice latte) but in a crunchy snack. These white chocolate-covered espresso beans give you a subtle caffeine buzz and have the right amount of sweetness to balance out the bitter espresso. Great on their own, they would also make a great festive fall garnish on an Espresso Martini.

7. Pumpkin Cheesecake

Don't feel like breaking out the springform pan? Trader Joe's is doling out whole pumpkin cheesecakes. Serving it with homemade whipped cream and a dusting of nutmeg could fool even the most discerning guests! They'll surely sell out in time for Thanksgiving, but you can always freeze for later. Who would know?

8. Pumpkin Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are an easy on-the-go breakfast we love, and Trader Joe's made them even better by adding pumpkin, almond butter, and pumpkin spice also folded in. If you tried, you couldn't squeeze more fall flavor into a single breakfast. We suggest enjoying these hearty rolled oats with a sprinkling of chopped pecans on top for a bit of crunch.

9. Mini Spicy Pumpkin Samosas

These samosas, filled with warm, savory pumpkin inside the crispy dough, will make the most interesting (and delectable!) appetizer of the party food spread. The filling includes pumpkin, paneer (like Indian cottage cheese), potatoes, onion, and Indian-inspired seasonings like garam masala, cumin, coriander, ginger, and turmeric.

This list is only the tip of the, er, pumpkin. On your next trip to Trader Joe's, expect many other pumpkin-baked goods, frozen foods, coffees, and more. If you've missed out on Trader Joe's fantastic fall products, this is your sign to stock up before you even watch Hocus Pocus 2.
