Every season has its signature foods. Winter has a monopoly on peppermint goodies; spring has the unique ability to make you crave a salad; summers are made for relaxing seaside with fresh fish and a glass (or three) of rosé. For fall, it’s all pumpkin everything, and Trader Joe’s is fully on board with this cliché indulgence. The supermarket is launching dozens of new products by the end of this month—and, yes, they’re packed with our favorite autumnal flavors. Take a peek at a few of our favorites, below, and ready your shopping list:

Cinnamon Bun Spread

Prepare for a brunch revolution. This smooth sauce harnesses the best part of the tasty dessert (the filling, naturally) in one easily accessible container. All you need is a spoon.

Try it out: Drizzle over pancakes and French toast for a sweet start to your morning. 

Pumpkin Bisque 

It’s essentially comfort food in a jar. Pick up this creamy soup to have on hand for those cold weeknights when you just can’t bear to cook anything elaborate. 

Try it out: Serve as the good Lord intended, with only a dollop of sour cream on top. 

Herbes de Provence Olive Oil

Okay, so this is technically an all-season item, but it’s packed with aromatic herbs, making it a must for any and all fall dishes you’re planning to whip up. 

Try it out: Use it for vinaigrettes, marinades, and roasted potatoes in lieu of standard oil to give each added oomph. 

Leafy Greens and Butternut Squash Salad Kit 

Sad desk salad, begone; this all-in-one packet makes meal prep a cinch. It’s also a welcome break from all the one-pot chilis and cheesy pastas you’ll surely be enjoying this time of year. 

Try it out: Add a few of your own finishing touches, like pomegranate seeds and chopped walnuts. 

Organic Pumpkin Bread

Is it a dessert? Is it a simple carb? Actually, this loaf is the best of both worlds, and since it won’t last long, we recommend stocking up.

Try it out: Swap regular toast for a slice of this, complete with a slather of butter—and maybe even the cinnamon bun spread on those days where you really need it. 

All that’s missing is chic new servingware to accessorize your fall culinary adventures:
