Have you noticed the mega EXPLOSION of pumpkin products at Trader Joe’s this month? I’m used to seeing pumpkin products emerge this time of year, but TJ’s buyers seem to have gone a little pumpkin crazy this time around!  There are the usual favorites that make their seasonal appearances – such as Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Cream Cheese, Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle Mix, or Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix. But this year, pumpkin has made its way into everything from teas to cereals to even body lotion! You could fill an entire grocery cart with pumpkin products!
