Tried It Tuesday: Pumpkin Edition

I figured it was about time I shared with you some of the fun pumpkin things I’ve tried over the past month or so… Most of them are indulgent so, I’m linking up for Treat Yourself Tuesday.

My mom bought the Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Spice Bread. Ummm yes. I enjoyed it toasted with butter, straight out of the package and as french toast.

I made GiGi’s Pumpkin Spice Latte and it was SO GOOD! Highly recommend her recipe 🙂

The Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds are AWESOME! Great flavor and not too sweet. Delicious and highly addictive- you’ve been warned!

I tried the Yoplait Greek Whips Pumpkin Cheesecake because a) it’s pumpkin and b) it was on sale. It was meh. I liked the whipped texture but wasn’t overly impressed with the flavor. I much prefer making my own with 2% greek yogurt and pumpkin.

Rich (Kristin’s BF) bought a box of the Quest Pumpkin Pie Bar and kindly gave me one to try. Another product I was let down by. Most people like the Quest Bars because of their soft texture, but this was more like a traditional harder, chewier bar and the “candy coating” was more wax like than anything. I mean, I still ate it and it had a slight pumpkin spice flavor, but I wouldn’t purchase more.

Can’t forget about the good ole Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting I had for my birthday. Outta this world good!

Still haven’t tried the Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter from Trader Joe’s. In fact. I haven’t been to TJ’s is a long time and am out of almond butter! The horror. Looks like I need to make a trip ASAP! I got some good pumpkin stuff their last year I need to pick up, too!

Wishing I still had some Great Low Carb Bread Co pumpkin spice bread and muffins!

I’m sure I’ll keep finding and buying pumpkin stuff until the end of November when all this winter will take over and mint and gingerbread will be the next hot flavors. Until then… Pumpkin On my friends!

What your favorite pumpkin product this season?

  1. Hey Heather! I do a “Tried it Tuesday” post each week – maybe we should start a link up?? Sara at Lake Shore Runner used to have one.

    I loved the Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter from Peanut Butter and Company and the pumpkin pie cereal bars from Trader Joes. I did not dare to try the cookie butter!

    • I didn’t even realize she didn’t do it anymore, haha. I’d be on board, but I rarely post every Tuesday… I’d like to, but just get busy. I’d fully support you doing one though 😉
      Oooo! I’ll have to get the Peanut Butter and Co. Pumpkin Spice butter! NOM!

  2. Oooh my all of that pumpkin goodnesslooks so good! The only pumpkin spice thing I’ve tried lately were toll house pumpkin spice baking chips. They were good but really sweet. I may have to try that cookie butter! You know, for scientific purposes.

    • Of course for scientific purposes! Obviously! I haven’t had the pumpkin spice baking chips… I think I’d end up eating them by the handful instead of using them in a recipe, haha

  3. I can not get into those quest bars. They gross me out. The last one I tried was lemon. I have a strawberry one in the pantry, maybe I’ll like that one!

    I’m a pumpkin girl…this season it has been the pumpkin bagels at Panera. Loved them during the end of marathon training. Speaking of pumpkin chips…I bet they’d be yummy in oatmeal cookies!

    • The lemon Quest bar was DISGUSTING! I haven’t had a Panera Pumpkin Bagel! What’s wrong with me?!? That’s a perfect fuel for marathon training! And I agree, the chips in oatmeal cookies would be the bomb!

  4. OMFG OMFG OMFG YOU MADE MY PSL!!!!!!! I loveeeeee when I hear that people actually make my recipes and the fact that I love you regardless only makes this that much sweeter!!! I am thrilled you liked it too. It’s pretty TOP NOTCH if you ask me, but I am obviously bias!! HA HA HA!!

    And um, PUMPKIN FO DAYS yo! Baby Lady lovesssss da pumpkin. You might actually give birth to one? LOL!!!!
