6. Apple Cider

There's only one ingredient in this seasonal bev: fresh-pressed apple juice. Warm it up on the stovetop with spices like cinnamon, allspice and cloves, then add a glug of whiskey or spiced rum to it if you're up for a nightcap.

Meaty Kalamatas + tart peri peri peppers + bright jalapeños = the ultimate cheese board accompaniment. (The snack pairs especially well with grilled halloumi.)

Aka the easiest way to make spaghetti and meatballs more exciting. The orange strands are dyed with organic tomato powder, while the olive green ones are colored with organic spinach powder.

10. Non-Dairy Pumpkin Oat Beverage

It's begging to be frothed and added to a homemade PSL. Might we suggest pairing it with TJ's maple pecan clusters cereal as well?

13. Bamba with Hazelnut Creme Filling

Delicately crunchy, seriously nutty and downright addictive, bamba is an Israeli snack made from corn and peanuts. But because Trader Joe has a sweet tooth, he filled his with hazelnut crème for good measure.

14. Cranberry Orange Bars

Move over, lemon. These bars are proof that buttery shortbread can pair well with just about any citrus fruit or sour berry. (BTW, if you don't have yours with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, you're doing it wrong.)

15. Maple Poffertjes

The Dutch dessert you never knew you needed. These dangerously poppable gems are made with sweet yeast batter and infused with maple syrup, so they taste like tiny, fluffy pancakes.
