New month, same grocery store crush. October is officially here in all its gourd-decorated glory, and Trader Joe’s has a brand-new product roster to fit the scene. Here's what we're buying this month. 

 Pumpkin & Roasted Pepitas Cookies

These crispy little cookies are the perfect vehicles for delicious combinations: Make miniature ice cream sandwiches using a spoonful of pumpkin spice ice cream or dip them into a glass of pumpkin spice almond beverage.

 Apple Cranberry Tarts

These sweet-tart pastries prove pumpkin isn't the only fall superstar. They also give you a reason to keep eating ice cream past summer's end.

 Pumpkin Cream Cheese

OK, so this one isn't new exactly. But since it was first released in 2010, Trader Joe's has struggled to keep this seasonal product stocked. If you manage to snag a tub, use it to add a fall twist to classic cream cheese frosting.

 Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese

Trader Joe's knows frozen mac. So you can trust that this butternut squash version, in all its fall-spiced fanfare, is worth your time.

 Apple Cider Jam

This fall-foward jam is the move for your morning toast. But it also works on ice cream, as a brine for pork or chicken, and as an ingredient in a fall baking experiment.

 Organic Butternut Squash

It takes much less time to open a can than it does to roast your own squash. This canned pumpkin alternative offers a slightly less sweet option for soups, stews and pies—or basically in anything that calls for pumpkin.

 Premium Peanut Butter Roundels

You can never go wrong with a peanut butter-and-chocolate combination. These coin-shaped treats come in both dark and milk chocolate, so they're sure to please all sweet tooths this Halloween.

 Icelandic Style Nonfat Yogurt

Icelandic yogurt, or skyr, is one of the hottest trends in cultured dairy. It's thicker and contains more protein than both regular and Greek yogurts.

 Pumpkin Ginger Hold the Cone!

These ice cream cones will make you feel like you're eating a frozen fall gingerbread house. And that's a good thing.
