It seems as though store shelves begin crowding with limited-edition holiday sweets, treats and drinks earlier and earlier each year. But we’re not complaining. Give us the peppermint Oreos! Give us the pumpkin spice creamers! Give us all the maple-flavored ice cream pints!
This year, expect to not only see an abundance of pumpkin spice-flavored products, from new baking truffles to returning cream cheese spreads, but also a handful of more creative, innovative products, like a smooth, creamy cinnamon bun spread, maple ginger ice cream, and even hot cocoa-flavored toaster pastries — all from Trader Joe’s.
And, of course, you’ll see all of the usual suspects, including flavors like gingerbread and peppermint (so. much. peppermint. this year.).
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get shopping and, eventually, baking. We can smell the fresh batch of pumpkin-spice cookies now…
Hot cocoa frosted toaster pastries
Why drink hot cocoa when you can bite into it? Trader Joe’s has a new, organic item that allows you to do just that: Organic Frosted Hot Cocoa Toaster Pastries.
Hot cocoa frosted toaster pastries, $2.99 at Trader Joe’s
Gingerbread nutrition bars
The holiday season is a fickle time of the year when maintaining a healthy diet can be admittedly difficult. But with Larabar’s new gingerbread nutrition bars — spiced with vanilla, ginger, cinnamon and allspice — you can get a taste of the holidays and feel good about what you’re consuming.

Pumpkin spice cream cheese
Bursting with pumpkin and cinnamon flavors, Philadelphia’s pumpkin spice cream cheese spread returns this year, and it’s exactly what your bagel needs this holiday season.

Pumpkin spice baking truffles
A brand-new Nestlé Toll House product, these pumpkin spice baking truffles will have you making a fresh batch of cookies every week. (Excessive? We think not.)

Cinnamon bun spread
New to TJ’s is this sweet, decadent cinnamon, honey and vanilla-flavored spread. Sure, you can top your waffles or pancakes with it, but TJ’s recommendation? Heat it up for 20 seconds (or less) in the microwave, then drizzle atop their very own french vanilla ice cream.

Maple ginger ice cream
While we’re on the topic of sweet Trader Joe’s finds, TJ’s announced this week the release of its new, very holiday-appropriate ice cream, maple ginger cookie swirl. It has chunks of ginger cookie pieces and a swirl of maple throughout the pint.

Peppermint bark Oreos
Yeah, you can’t fully embrace the holidays without at least one limited-edition Oreo package in your pantry. And this year, choose peppermint bark-flavored Oreos. You won’t regret it.

It’s a classic holiday dessert staple: gingerbread cookies. And Pepperidge Farm’s is the perfect blend of sugar and spice.

Frosted gingerbread creamer
Exclusive to Walmart, Coffee Mate’s new frosted gingerbread creamer will give that home-brewed coffee of yours the sweet kick it needs. Keep an eye out for prices and availability at your local Walmart, as it’s not available online yet.
Dark chocolate peppermint creamer
That’s right, Coffee Mate has released not one but two holiday-themed creamers this year. And we have to admit, we’re more partial to this rich-and-creamy dark chocolate peppermint creamer.
