Halloween 2019 at Trader Joe's

One of the things I look forward to the most every autumn is the release of Trader Joe's Halloween food! They always have the ghoulest snacks and I stock up on their frightful food every fall. And their vegan options are always to die for (though I wish a few more of their items were vegan - I'm looking at you, pumpkin spice cream cheese!).

Unfortunately for me, I'm hundreds of miles away from a Trader Joe's at the moment. However, I took a recent trip up to Oregon and Washington and made it my mission to seek out Trader Joe's stores up there so I could indulge in some of my favorite fall foods! I got lucky and the Trader Joe's I visited were already filling their shelves with Halloween treats, so I snapped a few pics so I could share all the vegan goodies they have this year.

Take a look at their vegan Halloween food below:

 Faves Halloween and Pumpkin Joe-Joe's are back!

 Pumpkin bagels - I love slathering mine with some Miyoko's or Earth Balance
butter and Trader Joe's Apple Cider Jam!

 The highly-addicting Candy Corn Popcorn is so dangerous - I usually eat a
whole bag in one sitting (no shame here!).

 The Fall Zucchette Pasta is adorably shaped like pumpkins and pairs well
with a cashew cream sauce or a butter sage sauce. Bone appetite!

 The Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Mix is new this year! Just 
use vegan substitutes when making cookies with it!

 I love stocking up on a few boxes of Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix so I
can get a taste of fall year-round. Again, just use a vegan substitute for the
egg (I loooove Neat Egg) and you'll be enjoying some delicious pumpkin
bread in no time!

 For those that are gluten-free, there is this GF Pumpkin Bread and Muffin
Baking Mix to the rescue!

 Another new item I adore - Fall Leaf Corn Tortilla Chips - yes, the chips
are shaped like fall leaves!! I heard they go well with the Trader Joe's
Bloody Mary Salsa!

 OMG Pumpkin Rolls, droooooool! Another one of my faves for sure! And 
yes, they really are vegan!

 This is some of the best spiced cider ever! Trader Joe's Organic Cold
Pressed Fuji Apple Spice Cider with Cinnamon and Clove are what 
fall dreams taste like - crisp, tart, and sweet.

 They're baaaaaaaaack! Ghosts and Bats Crispy Potato Snacks are my go-to
snack this time of year. I wish I could snack on ghost and bat shaped chips
all year long! 

 A big bowl of comforting oatmeal is a fantastic way to start a fall day. I 
love how quick it is to make this Pecan Pumpkin Instant Oatmeal and 
the taste is like getting all wrapped up in your fave fall sweater!

 I don't see many people talk about the Organic Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark,
but this stuff is legit tasty! It has a really nice crunch and I like the rich
chocolate they use on it. 

Pumpkin O's are a staple around the autumn season in my house!

 Trader Joe's doesn't just have fall food items, they also have skincare items
like this luxurious Pumpkin Body Butter. You'll smell like a pumpkin patch
in the middle of an apple orchard with this delectable lotion!

Trader Joe's also has this new Pumpkin Spice Face Mask! At first I didn't
think it was vegan since it lists silk in the ingredients, but a intrepid 
Instagram follower did the leg-work and confirmed with Trader Joe's
that the mask is suitable for vegans (they use synthetic silk).

 Sugar skulls in tons of colors, in both small and large sizes, featuring a
variety of succulents.


 Fall Fantasy beauties - I love the warty ones!

Ghost pumpkins

I didn't get photos of all of Trader Joe's vegan Halloween options - they also have some great autumn ciders, teas, coffee, candy, jam, etc. that for some reason I didn't get photos of this year. They also have other autumn / Halloween items that I choose not to feature since they are not vegan.

Here is what I ended up buying:
