The Best Pumpkin Spice Products You Need to Buy Now

Between sweater weather and that bright, fall foliage, autumn brings about an abundance of beauty. But one of the most beloved aspects in recent years has been the rising trend of pumpkin spice blessing just about everything we love.

As the quintessential fall flavor that’s both classic and traditional, stemming from Starbucks’ recurrent latte, pumpkin spice has become an effortless essence capturing the best of the season from the yellowing of leaves to the crisp, cool air.

According to research compiled by CNN, there’s actually a reason why people are so addicted to the pumpkin spice flavors, and a lot of it is psychological. From being associated to times when many of us have encountered them in comforting situations, to the scent of pumpkin over the years conditioning our brains to anticipate the season, much of it is interconnected.

And today, it goes beyond just lattes. Because not all pumpkin spice is created equally and brings its own distinctiveness to each and every food, we tasted our way through some of the most inspiring (and unfortunately, offensive) new pumpkin spice-related products for you to dive into for the 2017 season, so let those cozy autumn feels soak right in.

Quaker Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

Waking up to a bowl of warm oatmeal is one of the best ways to start the day, and this fall flavor nails it with all its ingredients. Made with 100 percent whole grain oats, this healthy and perfect alternative for breakfast lets you enjoy all those pumpkin spice flavors with single serving packets. The flavoring of the pumpkin is subtle, not too sweet or overpowering. This isn’t spice heavy either, but it smells and tastes a lot like cinnamon.

Pumpkin Spice Cheerios

As one of the most beloved staples on your table every morning, Cheerios released its limited edition pumpkin spice flavor just in time for the season, and this one is seriously delicious. Boosting a good, natural pumpkin spice flavor that is both subtle and warming, this one has that honey nut taste and crunch, but finishes quite nicely with that signature spice.

Edy’s Slow Churn Pumpkin Spice Latte

What started with a widespread love of the original Pumpkin Spice Latte has turned into a craze for pumpkin spiced-everything, including Edy’s Slow Churn Pumpkin Spice Latte ice cream. This new dessert incorporates the coffee flavoring of your beloved PSL, but without the caffeine. Initially announced on Instagram, the new flavor is a mix of coffee and pumpkin spice — think more along the lines of nutmeg and cinnamon. As for the latte part, there is plenty of smooth, velvety creaminess to savor.

White Pumpkin Pie M&Ms

Mars Candy is working hard to bring the mouth-watering essence of the autumnal classic in confectionery form with their new White Pumpkin Pie M&Ms! Made of white chocolate infused with the cinnamon-y spices you’ve come to associate with fall, this flavor is perfect for that sweet tooth indulgence. The spice flavorings marry each other quite nicely and balance very well with the white chocolate.

Pumpkin Spice Oreo Cookies

If you are looking for the best pumpkin spice flavoring to have ever existed in one of your favorites, these cookies are the ones to get! Oreo nailed it with their cookies that maintain a sweet and intense pumpkin flavor. The cookie itself is deliciously delectable with that crunch, and offers a nice gingerbread sort of flavor with a pumpkin pie kind of filling.

Nature’s Path Pumpkin Spice Waffles

If you’re not a fan of cold cereal or warm oatmeal, these organic waffles are what you need. As a welcome addition to the gluten free collection, these delicious waffles are made with organic pumpkin puree, and a cinnamon and nutmeg spice blend. Not only is the aroma incredible when it’s in the toaster getting all warm for breakfast, but it has very subtle flavoring that doesn’t overpower.
