Trader Joe's has a new product: pumpkin caramel. It's delicious and actually contains pumpkin. I made myself a latte with it and couldn't help thinking, "Suck it, Starbucks! My coffee is more legit than yours!"

Yum! I'd love it if a Trader Joes opened in our new community, that and Costco are two store I miss now that we live in the 'burbs.

Move here! Costco just opened their first store in the area a couple of weeks ago, and there's a Trader Joe being built as I write this... was supposed to open Oct. 1 but postponed until January. It's within walking distance of my apartment!

TJ's has a good salted caramel sauce without pumpkin, I would just make a latte with that!

My favorite is caramel with pumpkin pie spice (Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie Spice blend is the best). My favorite coffee shop also makes a mean macchiato with chocolate milk and caramel (I'm in love with caramel).

They also make a grasshopper with creme de menthe and chocolate. That's Ara's favorite right now. :)

If I see one more thing about pumpkin I will stuff an entire gourd up each person's nostrils. All of them. Every people.

Item #17 that will forever prevent us from being real friends.

Man. Trader Joe's is all pumpkin right now. The best thing in the store are the pumpkin macarons - Giovanni loves those. He actually started cooking classes because they had an all pumpkin one and he wanted to eat all the punkins!!

Damn, TJ will be out of pumpkin phase before they open their store here. Was supposed to be Oct. 1 but it's delayed until maybe Feb.

They'll always have triple ginger cookies, though.

And their cover-everything-in-chocolate phase lasts year round! ;)

Yum. I've been making my own pumpkin spice lattes with pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, soy milk & usually a little Torani French vanilla syrup. Or, a couple of times, caramel syrup.

Their dark chocolate pumpkin spice salted caramels are ridiculous. I basically raided the pumpkin themed display.

I'm heading to Trader Joes this week for the monthly run. After what you and Maj have said, I can see that I've got to add a few items to my list. :)
