I adore Trader Joe’s grocery stores because they give us more delicious options than Harris Teeter and Food Lion, and customer service is stellar! When returning items employees are nice and easy and don’t use the interrogation room in the back room to probe you of why you would return food. LOL Okay, I digress, now back to the pumpkins. When you walk into Trader Joes around this time of year, pumpkins are everywhere in every form. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, pumpkin spice teas, coffee, event chips! If you could make your favorite pumpkin dish, what would it be?

Here’s the big reveal of pumpkin items at Trader Joes 2020:

Spicy Pumpkin Curry Simmer Sauce
Pumpkin Empanadas
Pumpkin Bisque
Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie
Pumpkin Bread And Pumpkin Spice Batons
Pumpkin Tortilla Chips
Hold The Cone Pumpkin Ginger Ice Cream
Pumpkin Cheesecake

Out of their 2020 list I would go for the Pumpkin Cheesecake, how about you? Here’s some health benefits of eating pumpkin:  Highly Nutritious and Particularly Rich in Vitamin A
High Antioxidant Content May Reduce Your Risk of Chronic Diseases
Packs Vitamins That May Boost Immunity
Vitamin A, Lutein and Zeaxanthin May Protect Your Eyesight
