The Coolest New Foods & Drinks of Fall 2023
Magic Spoon’s new launches reliably sell out. Despite the hefty price tag, breakfast lovers can’t get enough of the brand’s nostalgic, high-protein cereals. This new limited-time flavor is packed with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg to satisfy all your fall cravings. Even better, it comes in a fall pack alongside a limited-time Cocoa Peanut Butter cereal. Wash ’em down with a PSL, will ya?
We’re partial to Loverboy’s ever-so-refreshing spritzes, but we can’t wait to try this new variety of hard tea. Clocking in at a modest 4.2 percent ABV, this sipper is concocted with organic black tea, cherry juice concentrate and natural vanilla extract. Even better, each can is sugar-free since it’s sweetened with stevia and monk fruit. Find it using a store locator here.
Your pantry is simply incomplete without a box of Cheddar Bunnies, and the same will go for these once you try them. Made without high fructose corn syrup, synthetic colors or artificial flavors, the grahams include honey pumpkins and chocolate bunnies.
Looking for a scary delicious communal snack to serve at your Halloween party? Look no further than this unconventional trail mix, which boasts pretzel balls, honey bourbon-seasoned cranberries, salted caramel cashews, dried sweetened apples and honey bourbon-seasoned almonds. Add some M&Ms to the mix for some trick-or-treat-inspired flair.
Pumpkin haters rejoice. This collection of hard ciders is dedicated to the other most popular fall flavor: apple. Sip your way through Crisp Apple (sweet and acidic), Green Apple (tart), Baked Apple Pie (nutmeg- and vanilla-forward) and Cinnful Apple (spicy cinnamon) varieties in cans or bottles.
Available now through Halloween, these creamy milk chocolate squares are filled with sweet-tart apple-flavored caramel. You can also find pumpkin spice and dark chocolate macchiato Ghirardelli squares during spooky season, along with a Caramel Apple Hot Fudge Sundae at select Ghirardelli Chocolate Shops.
This ever-popular flavor is back for a limited time. Savor real pumpkin puree, cinnamon, allspice and bits of pie crust in every bite of this low-sugar ice cream, sweetened with stevia and erythritol. (The whole pint has about the same calories as a single slice of pumpkin pie.)
With hosting season on the horizon, it never hurts to have some fancy crackers at the ready (you never know when you’ll need to assemble a charcuterie board on the fly). These wine-infused beauties are just the trick. Buttery, oaky and slightly citrusy, they’ll pair beautifully with all sorts of cheeses, meats and vinos. Treat yourself to The Ultimate Butter Box—which includes a box of crackers, four ButterCans of wine and an insulated tote—to try them.
After selling out in a flash in 2022, this heavyweight is back in stock for another autumn. Made with nutrient-dense ingredients like chickpeas, tapioca and pea protein instead of grains or wheat, the cereal is vegan and only contains 3 grams of sugar per serving (and a whole lot of pumpkiny goodness).
Caramel qualifies as a fall flavor in our book with its luxurious brown sugar-y notes. Infuse your morning joe with its silky-smooth qualities by adding this coffee concentrate, which launched this summer, to your collection. Each bottle makes up to 16 servings of coffee, and you can have it hot, iced, latte-style or even blended.
We can’t *wait* to start our day with one of these flaky, nostalgic pastries, ideally fresh out of the toaster. The filling is rich with flavors of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and clove, while the exterior is dressed with frosting and festive sprinkles.
This beloved popcorn brand just launched six new seasonings (including Buffalo sauce, white cheddar, nacho cheese, movie theater butter and ranch), but we’re most excited about this collab with Cinnabon. It doesn’t get more autumnal than the flavors of Markara cinnamon and pastry-inspired frosting. Find where to buy it here.
You may have a few Monin syrups on your bar cart, but did you know the brand also makes cold brew concentrate? This new variety is made with cold-extracted coffee and lightly sweetened so you can fix your morning cuppa without any extra steps. Simply pour this sweet-and-spicy elixir over ice and top it with milk or water to your liking.
Licorice lovers already know Wiley’s drops for their chewy centers and crunchy exteriors. This seasonal take is vegan, fat-free and flavored after Halloween’s most divisive candy. Do you dare snag a bag?
Their doughnuts may be what put them on the map (and on your grocery list), but Entenmann’s just released refrigerated, ready-to-bake cookie dough that we suspect will make them even more famous. Varieties include Glazed Donut, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Brownie and, most autumnal of them all, Cinnamon Toffee. Find them at Albertsons stores nationwide.
If the brand’s applesauce is any indication, we’re betting this cider is delicious. Made from 100 percent apple juice crafted from fresh-pressed apples and concentrate blended with seasonal spices, this sipper is packed with vitamin C and seasonal flavor.
We were totally wowed by Sweet Loren’s sugar cookie dough, so we have high hopes for this limited-time fall flavor. Vegan, gluten-free and safe to eat raw, you can find the pumpkin spice variety at Whole Foods, Target, Kroger, Albertsons, Safeway and online.
If you’re a Sam’s Club regular, you *need* to add this intriguing snack to your shopping list. Located in the freezer section, the empanadas are stuffed with pumpkin-cream cheese filling. Simply pop them in the air fryer or oven until warmed through and dig in.
Aka the ultimate way to upgrade a mug of mulled cider or hot cocoa. Shaped like pumpkins and infused with sweet-and-spiced fall flavor, these mallows are as fluffy and soft as the O.G.
It’s never too cold for a frozen treat, if you ask us. Think cool, sweet vanilla ice cream, stuffed with cinnamon-apple filling and wrapped in sweet rice dough. (There’s also a pumpkin spice flavor, in case that’s more your speed.)
Available in eight-ounce tubs and four-packs, this treat is designed to be pumpkin pie in yogurt form. It’s swirled with real pumpkin puree and crafted with whole milk, cane sugar, cream cheese for tang and wildflower honey for sweetness.
Few things are more heavenly as a crisp, toasted English muffin slathered in butter—but pumpkin spice English muffins are one of them. Luckily, they’ve been brought back for another fall season, and they’re just as cinnamony and spiced as before. Keep an eye out for pumpkin spice bagels and swirl bread as well.
These seasonal bars are all treat and no trick. Made with egg whites, almonds, cashews, dates, pumpkin and a flurry of seasonal spices, each bar is packed with 12 grams of satiating protein, so they’re great for in between meals or after a workout.
From now through November 18, you can find Tastykake’s Caramel Apple Glazed Pie, Pumpkin Spice Donuts and Caramel Apple Donuts at a store near you. We’re most psyched about the pie since it’s finished with a sweetly seasonal caramel glaze.
Oat milk lovers, this one’s for you. These dairy-free frozen dessert bars are made with real pumpkin, cold brew coffee and no milk. Each pop only contains 60 calories and 7 grams of sugar, so indulge to your heart’s content. They’re exclusively available at Whole Foods and GoodPop’s website.
Whether you’re looking to spice up your next espresso martini or making a cappuccino, this flavored simple syrup won’t disappoint. It’s made with nothing but organic cane sugar, water, organic wildflower honey and organic flavors.
