Especially for Trader Joe’s shoppers.
The beloved grocer went from zero to one-pump-dred faster than you can say “Happy Halloween.” Store locations are now stuffed with pumpkin bagels and pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin butternut squash bisque, pumpkin tortilla chips and pumpkin-shaped pasta.
Essentially, pumpkin is to Trader Joe’s what shrimp is to Bubba in “Forrest Gump.”
A search for the orange stuff on the Trader Joe’s website displays five pages of product results, enough to easily fit at least one pumpkin-flavored product into every single meal of your day.
And if you thought Trader Joe’s fans were loyal as it is, imagine their excitement when these special products roll out. Twitter had a field day celebrating this out-of-control pumpsplosion.

Flipped through Trader Joe’s October flyer. There are 28 pumpkin & pumpkin spiced flavored items (yes I counted) including dog treats. ]]>🤣🤷🏼
