From pumpkin poo-pourri to TJ's favorites, these are the 15 best pumpkin spice products to indulge in this time of year.
As it’s now firmly fall and days into October, we are fully immersed in pumpkin spice season. The delightful blend of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and occasionally allspice has become as ubiquitous this time of year as falling leaves and football tailgates.
We’ve discussed some of our favorite and not-so-favorite pumpkin spice products before, but since then we’ve been made aware of so many more PS themed products, we just had to share them so you could enjoy them, too.

Pumpkin Spice Tea
Tea lends itself beautifully to the aromatic spices in a pumpkin pie spice. Steeping hot tea really brings out the flavors in spices without overpowering the tea itself, making for a warm cup of autumn deliciousness.
Chai tea is literally spiced tea (masala chai is a Hindi phrase for “spiced tea”), so it’s the perfect place to drop in some pumpkin flavor. In addition to traditional pie spices, Twinings adds a kick of cardamom and cloves.
Watching someone make matcha, a Japanese green tea that comes from a powdered form of the tea leaf, is an experience. With this pumpkin pie version, you’ll be whisking up a sweet version of this oh-so-good-for-you tea.
Tea Forte has clever little pyramid infusers, and this set of 10 will create a deliciously warm blend of cinnamon, clove and ginger.
This tea blend makes a great latte if you dissolve in a tablespoon of maple syrup and then add warmed milk, according to Republic of Tea. They’re the experts, so we trust them!
Pumpkin Spice Sweets
Pumpkin spice lends itself easily to sweet things. After all, pumpkin pie is a dessert, and in our opinion anything with cinnamon makes life better.
We’ve loved Krusteaz mixes before so expect this one to be just as good. Simple to bake with just the right amount of pumpkin flavor to make your house smell like fall, in a good way.
What could be better than pumpkin spiced marshmallows shipped to your little hands to make pumpkin spice s’mores, or drop in a hot cup of coffee for a no drive through required PSL. We’d like to try them as crispy rice treats, which would make an excellent dish for your Halloween party.
Hello, three of our favorite things -- pumpkin, white chocolate, and cheesecake -- wrapped into one handy bar. Did we mention there’s graham cracker crumble mixed in?
Pumpkin Spice Nut Butter
Gone are the days of boring old peanut butter, and in are the days of exciting new nut butter flavors. You can make nut butter from just about any nut and these companies do one better and add pumpkin spice for a seasonal treat.
This delish jar of nut butter has everything in it except peanuts. A blend of multiple nut butters, it also includes pumpkin seed butter plus nutmeg, ginger, and cloves, and it only has four grams of sugar per serving.
The good folks at Abby’s Better are known for their unique flavors of nut butters made with simple ingredients. This blend contains only four ingredients plus the pumpkin spices and it’s vegan plus gluten- and peanut-free.
Pumpkin Spice Snacks
Snacks are just the best. Add in pumpkin spice and it’s just about magical.
These aren’t just any old cookies. Each one packs 16 grams plant-based protein and 10 grams of fiber into each cookie, without a lot of guilt but with a lot of pumpkin spice flavor. You’ll hardly know it’s good for you.
It’s kind of like a drinkable pumpkin pie that’s actually good for you, with loads of vitamins and of course protein -- 30 grams, to be exact. And only one gram of sugar and 160 calories.
You’ll want to spread the love with this 12 pack of tall cones from Popcornopolis. We love flavored popcorn and are looking forward to trying out some of this tasty popcorn this fall. Though, we're not sure we can sneak this tall cone into the movies, so we’ll watch from home with a bowl filled.
Some pumpkin spice products just defy categorization -- here are two surprising ones.
We figure you’ve got to be a truly dedicated pumpkin spice fan to add this to your arsenal of home products, but we guess smelling cinnamon and cloves is better than the alternative.
You’ll find many Dropps products in our house, but we’re not 100% sold on smelling like fall air in our clothes, although the promise of apples and amber is appealing. We can vouch for most of their products and like their eco-friendly initiatives and gentle on the planet detergents.
