Put down your basic iced coffee, and retire the rosé.

As Hot Girl Summer winds down and the occasional breeze gives way to sweater weather, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (and all it’s edible, drinkable, sprayable derivatives) will be roused from hibernation for another season in the sun.

While the ubiquitously-adored beverage won’t be available until Tuesday, Aug. 27, the earliest release in the coffee corps’ 16-year run of the product, fans can indulge in a deluge of other trendy treats right now.

Here are the new pumpkin spice products of 2019 to curb your craving, so you don’t have to try that eye-watering pumpkin spice-flavored SPAM. Note: Prices vary depending on sales and outlets so click-through for the latest deals.

Drinks:

The Original Pumpkin Spice Latte

  • If it ain’t broke! The pumpkin spice drink that launched a thousand fall ‘grams is available online in bottles, and at a major discount compared to the grande varieties. Find your pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg flavor fix at Wal-Mart.

Starbucks

  • Starbucks Fall Bundle: PSL Blend, Fall Blend, and Pumpkin Spice Straws — Ready to level up? Home brewers need not miss out on all the fall fun. Starbucks sells ground beans in the viral pumpkin flavor, along with a medium roast fall blend, as part of their fall bundle. The bean bags come with a canister of pumpkin spice cookie straws, too.
  • Coffee Mate Pumpkin Spice Creamer — Your cup of joe deserves a lift. Spice it up with both natural and artificial flavoring, with Coffee Mate’s mini creamers. We can’t guarantee the photo-op will be as aspirational, but at least the taste will be the same.
  • Pumpkin Spice K-Cups — Pods, meet pump. Green mountain coffee roasters released a limited edition K-cup for fall, and they’re about fifty cents a piece, though they come in doomsday-prepper approved packs of 72. The coffee is light roast, and fair trade.
  • Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea — Love pumpkin spice but taking a break from caffeine? You’re in luck. Twinnings of London, the tea company, has a black tea infused with chai, cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, and clove. The tea is the sippable equivalent to wrapping yourself in a knit blanket on a porch swing.

Snacks:

  • Pumpkin Spice Almonds — Who says a healthy snack can’t feel indulgent? Blue Diamond almonds are packed with protein, and fiber, and can give you that spiced-pumpkin flavor without the added fat of milk and whipped cream that comes with the OG.
  • Caramel Almond Pumpkin Spice Kind Bars — Snap up a box of these dessert-adjacent granola bars quick — the flavor was only made in a limited batch and is already a trending release on Amazon. The number one ingredient in this gluten free snack is almonds, and they come in packs of 12.
  • Pumpkin Spice RX Bar — If you dream of Thanksgiving feasts, this bar is for you. RX prides itself on simple ingredients (this one has 3 egg whites, 6 almonds, 4 cashews, and 2 dates) but even they couldn’t resist getting in on the autumn trend.

Peanut Butter & Co.

  • Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter — Pumpkin spice PB & J might just be the new best part of back-to-school. Peanut Butter and Co. is making our fall dreams come true with their limited edition pumpkin spice seasonal flavor. Plus, there’s 7 grams of protein per serving.

Breakfasts:

  • Pumpkin Spice Special K — Red berries just got competition. The low-fat, feel-good cereal brand is getting in on the PSL parade with cereal in their original and “Crunch” varieties, with wheat flakes with nutmeg, allspice, ginger and cinnamon clusters.
  • Pumpkin Spice Cheerios — General Mills is generally with it. Their honey-nut Cheerios are delicious, but deserve being put aside to sample the pumpkin spice rendition, which, like original Cheerios, is gluten free.
  • Pumpkin Spice Life — C’est la vie! Pumpkin Spice Life cereal sounds delicious with or without milk. A box of the good stuff is only $3.48 from Walmart.
  • Pumpkin Spice Frosted Mini Wheats — Breakfast just got bonkers. Limited edition pumpkin spice frosted Mini Wheats is a mouthful to say, and eat. But it’s only available for a limited time.
  • Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts —What’s more American than apple pie? Pumpkin pie Pop-Tarts. This highly-addictive frosted breakfast pastry is a welcome treat any time of day.

Poptarts

  • Pumpkin Spice Bagel and English Muffin — Odd-bagel queen Cynthia Nixon herself might even balk at Pumpkin Spice bagels. But Thomas, famous for their English muffins, which also come in a pump-spice variety, is betting on the trend — as well as the aroma of a pumpkin spice baked good warming in a toaster.
  • Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal — When it comes to winter brekkies, oatmeal is king. But Quaker is edging into fall territory with their limited edition 12-pack of pumpkin spice oatmeal. This warm food was due for a fall glow-up.
  • Nature’s Path Pumpkin Pie Frosted Pastries — Picky about pastries? These organic treats from Nature’s Path are made with real pumpkin filling, with nutmeg and ginger.
  • Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls — How could a Pillsbury-Cinnabon collaboration be perfected? Pumpkin spice. That’s right, a limited edition pumpkin spice cinnamon roll, complete with pumpkin spice frosting, is available at Target online and in stores.

Dog treats:

  • Pumpkin Spice Greenies — Why should humans get to have all the fun? These pumpkin spice dental treats have the added benefit of cleaning your pup’s teeth, in addition to keeping them up with the latest fad.
  • Pumpkin Dog Biscuits — Don’t eat these grain-free pumpkin and cinnamon crunchy treats — they’re only for canine consumption, though they do sound tasty enough for humans.
  • Pumpkins and Coconut Dog Bones — There’s no wheat, corn or soy in these “human-grade” dog treats. There is delightful on-season coconut and pumpkin flavor, which your fur baby is sure to appreciate.
  • Pumpkin Spice Latte For Dogs — Let’s hope your dog has a social media presence. This blend of pumpkin, goat milk and spices is the natural treat pet-fluencers have been begging at the table for.
  • Pumpkin Spice Pooch Cake — Does your pet have a fall birthday? You’re in luck, because Pooch Cake makes a pumpkin spice flavor cake mix (just add water, eggs and oil) that will make Fido the envy of all the other pets.

All featured products are curated independently by our editors. When you buy something through our retail links, we may receive a commission.

The infamous Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte returned on August 27 this year (with a new Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew friend)—and Dunkin’ Donuts beat the competition by debuting their Pumpkin Spice products on August 21. Costco’s pumpkin pie is back already too. Now we’re halfway into September, which some would say is still too soon for all this PSL nonsense, but if you disagree, you’ll be happy to know there are a plethora of pumpkin spice products to buy besides coffee drinks, well in advance of October.

While some of us want to take in the last days of summer with barbecues and rosé on the patio, others are all in on pumpkin spice season.

It turns out that the best of both worlds actually can be had. Case in point: The weather is still delightful; the sun still stays out a bit longer; but the influx of pumpkin-spice flavored products has already hit the shelves in anticipation for the next season.

Instead of having to search high and low for these products, we did the work for you, bringing you this (very long, and still incomplete) list of pumpkin spice flavored gems (we’re looking at you, pumpkin spice latte popcorn—and side-eyeing you, pumpkin spice Spam!) that your pantry definitely needs as soon as possible—whether you’re ready for fall or not.

The Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Foods You Need in Your Life

Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s

Having tasted every Oreo in existence, I know that with flavors like Cinnamon Bun or Birthday Cake, Nabisco does not aim for subtlety. I fully expected TJ’s would follow Oreo’s lead and overwhelm my tastebuds with pumpkin spice. That did not happen, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Despite the fact that this is made from two pumpkin-flavored cookies with a layer of pumpkin creme inside, the Joe-Joe isn’t as pumpkiny as you’d think — there’s just enough spice to keep your mouth happy. And because the creme is the best part, TJ’s adds a sizable layer that squishes out of the cookie when you bite down. Dip this into the whipped cream atop a Pumpkin Spice Latte and you might reach peak fall.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix

I know, I know — who the hell wants to bake cookies when TJ’s offers so many delicious pre-made snacks? But it’s worth mixing together a couple ingredients for one sole reason: the smell of fall that will emanate from your oven when you’re baking it. It’s an intoxicatingly delicious scent, like baking an edible pumpkin Yankee Candle. (Please do not eat Yankee Candles). You can either make 24 small cookies or about 16 larger ones. You’ll even have plenty of cookies left over to give away to friends, who will think you’re some sort of Martha Stewart. The cookies have a ton of chocolate chips, and you’ll probably also notice that the spice blend goes heavy on the nutmeg. But if nutmeg and chocolate chips don’t sound good to you, why are you even reading this?!

Pumpkin Caramel Danish Kringle

Yeah, this isn’t a Trader Joe’s-branded item. But it may be one of the few nationwide grocers where you can find this delightful, oversized pastry courtesy of Racine, Wisconsin’s iconic O&H Danish Bakery, which will otherwise ship you one direct for around $30 (here it’s under $10). I’d never had one before, so I was surprised when a danish in the exact shape of a toilet seat came out of the bag. I threw it in the oven for three and a half minutes as instructed, and when it came out, I had the distinct pleasure of eating one of the best pumpkin-flavored pastries I’ve ever had. It’s flaky, warm, and has just the right of pumpkin spice. I prepared it as a midnight snack, but I’ve got a feeling it’s been enjoyed on a crisp fall morning with a cup of coffee. Pumpkin spice coffee, obviously.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

The funniest thing about the instructions for preparing this pre-made cheesecake is that it says it keeps for five days in the fridge. The odds of this dessert made with real pumpkin not being completely eaten in five days are small indeed. It’s staggeringly affordable at $6.99, and all it requires from you is to defrost it overnight in the fridge, and taking it out one to two hours before you want to eat a slice of this decadent cheesecake with a whole-wheat crust. Best of luck not finishing it in one sitting.

24 Pumpkin Spice Things We Really Don’t Need This Fall

Pumpkin spice with cinnamon and nutmeg in still lifeThe pumpkin spice craze got started back in 2003, courtesy of Starbucks. The company’s research and development team, working out of Starbucks headquarters in Seattle, was looking for another seasonal specialty beverage to follow up on the coffee giant’s successful holiday-period Eggnog Latte and Peppermint Mocha offerings. Somebody suggested trying to develop a coffee drink with pumpkin pie flavor.

According to the story told by Starbucks, the team sat around eating pumpkin pie and sipping espresso until they figured out how to concoct a spice mix that would blend well with coffee and steamed milk — and Pumpkin Spice Latte was born.

Starbucks test-marketed its new creation successfully, then rolled it out all over America in the fall of 2004. It was a hit, and other coffee and fast food chains — among them 7-Eleven, Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, and Tim Hortons — soon followed Starbucks’ lead. A Starbucks spokesperson told Delish last year that the company had sold 350 million PSLs in the previous 14 years.

There’s nothing mysterious about pumpkin spice, of course. It’s basically the spices that go into traditional pumpkin pie. The version produced by McCormick, the world’s largest spice company, is a blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. The Starbucks recipe involves cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

There’s nothing wrong with PSL, as long as you don’t mind drinking a few emulsifiers and preservatives and at least 15% of your recommended daily calorie intake with your cup of spiced coffee and milk. The imitators are okay, too, if you like that sort of thing. And pumpkin pie spices seem perfectly sensible when added to things like cookies, ice cream, or doughnuts. But pumpkin spice Spam? Soda? Bath salts? Please. It’s as bad as all those bacon-flavored foods the world doesn’t need.

24/7 Tempo has compiled a list of pumpkin spice items, edible and otherwise, that just don’t seem to make any sense. Some involve actual pumpkin purée or juice; others involve no pumpkin, just the spices that traditionally flavor pumpkin pie — cinnamon most of all. Of course, you could always just eat a piece of pumpkin pie. These are the best pie shops in every state.

This is hardly an exhaustive list. A search for “pumpkin spice” products on Amazon returns 48 pages of results. There are even mystery novels built around it, one of which is called “Death by Pumpkin Spice.” We know the feeling.
