Trader Joe's: The Ten Best Pumpkin Products

8. Pumpkin Dog Treats

When we bought these, we weren't sure if Fido would like pumpkin as much as we do. Our dog went nuts over the pumpkin-shaped cookies that smelled of sweetness and spice. Not too hard, they easily broke in half. Perfect if you have little dogs, or older dogs who don't like hard biscuits ($3.49).

7. Pumpkin Ice Cream

When we sampled the ice cream at the store, we enjoyed the sweet and spicy tones. Then some guy said the ice cream would taste great as a shake with a little bourbon or rum in it. That got us thinking -- pumpkin ice cream floats, pumpkin pie à la mode, pumpkin pie boozy concoctions. Enough to make us throw a pint into the cart ($3.99).
