What’s New at the Grocery Store for Fall 2017 (It’s Not All About Pumpkin Spice)

It’s fall, and it’s safe to say that the grocery store aisles will soon be lined with all things pumpkin!  Just a few years ago the only grocery items that were pumpkin were actual pumpkins, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin cookies.  What happened?  Do we blame Starbucks for the pumpkin obsession?  And why do we mix coffee with pumpkin flavor anyways?  Even though I think all things pumpkin are a little much for the next couple of months, I’m happy to report that the grocery stores have a lot of new products out that aren’t all about pumpkins.  Here’s what’s new at the grocery store for fall-

New Snack Foods

The snack food aisle is full of new products!  Crackers, cookies, chips, and more!  Just in time for all of those school lunches and snacks!

ginger and lemongrass triscuit

This flavor combo sounds so refreshing….can a Triscuit be refreshing?

The size of the Honey Maid Graham Snacks is perfect for all of the Halloween snack mix recipes that are popping up on Pinterest.  Plus, how did I miss Vanilla Graham Crackers?  We may have to make s’mores one more time this season!

I’ll be bringing some of these Town House Flatbread and Hummus snacks to work for that perfect afternoon snack!

Yay for convenience items!

Another couple of snacks from Special K…

All of these flavors sound so good, and who doesn’t like bite sized snacks?

Well, I guess people who don’t like bite sized snacks can just get a bar.

A little treat for the lunch box….

Here are some sweet snacks that just have to be good!

Every time I look in the cookie aisle, there are about 3 new kinds of Oreos!  Why did I have to go so many years with just the cream filled chocolate cookie, and now there is every flavor imaginable?  I see there is a mystery package of Oreos where you have to guess the flavor.  I’ve been looking for them but haven’t found them yet.

This flavor combo is so good, and yes it’s not pumpkin pie! Thank you from the apple pie lovers!

At least the Christmas Oreos aren’t out yet!

Frozen Foods

There’s always a new kind of frozen pizza in the freezers, and I found two yummy pizzas for the bacon lovers in the group!

We’ve really been loving the flavored mac n cheese’s (hatch chile, pepperoni pizza mac) from Trader Joe’s lately, and these new kinds that I found in the grocery store look very spicy!

Anything from Wicked Kitchen is appropriate for the Halloween season!

Here’s a new breakfast option for the kids, or the adult’s.  The Spider Man spider web waffles are perfect for Halloween!

Spider’s sold separately.

I love the Rick Bayless Frontera Grill sauce mixes for cooking and now there’s these….

The Baking Aisle

There are some new Enjoy Life baking mixes available….just noticed the price of $7.99!  Wow!

Finally!  Why didn’t I think of this first?  My life is now a little less messy…

There were also a couple of more flavors.

The Center Aisles

There isn’t a whole lot new in the center of the store, but I’m sure that will change soon!  I think the Ready Pasta is a great idea, I just wonder if it tastes any good?  It’s all about texture and that “bite” for pasta.  The potatoes look good, and we are going to try them soon!

This product will save about 20 minutes on pasta night!

Hopefully these taste less like cardboard…

This pear Gold Peak Tea sounds like an interesting flavor.  Let me know if you’ve tried it.

Pear! Not apple or pumpkin, but pear!

I can’t wait to try these out!

Sweets and Treats

The Halloween candy is starting to arrive!  What’s going to be new this year?  We did buy some white chocolate M&M’s that were great!  Better than those strawberry M&M’s…

Maybe hand these out to the parents on Halloween?

Pumpkin Spice

Surprisingly, there wasn’t an obnoxious amount of pumpkin spice items on the shelves yet!  Besides the Twinkies, we found pumpkin spice english muffins(?!) and pumpkin spice donut holes.  I’m sure in the next few weeks the pumpkin spice items will really hit the shelves.  I’ll update as more items arrive.

And here’s the pumpkin spice…

Fall is the time when we start craving those comforting foods….soup, apple crisp, baked chicken, and pumpkin spice.  It’s also football season, so bring on the pizza, chips, and all tailgating appropriate food!  It’s fun to see what pops up in the grocery stores for the season, and I hope you buy something new and have a lot of food firsts!



A new season means new foods in the grocery store aisle, and it's not all pumpkin spice! Here's what's new at the grocery store for Fall 2017.
