Fall Favorites

by simplylife on November 7, 2012

What I’m loving this fall:

1)  Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread.  You know how Trader Joe’s always has that little corner filled with warm samples and small cups of hot coffee?  Yeah, I always start my shopping trips in that section of the store.  Last Saturday, when I was at Trader Joe’s, they were serving warm bread with this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread.  I’m usually not someone who makes impulse purchases, but I just couldn’t leave the store without this.  It’s light, fluffy and has a strong pumpkin flavor.  It’s only available seasonally, so I have a feeling I’ll be picking-up another container before the end of the season. 

I also can’t wait to tell you what I used it on (one of my favorite new recipes)! :)

 2)  Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte Mix.  Yup, another Trader Joe’s purchase.  I literally made a cup of this just before writing this post.  All you need to do is mix it with hot water and it instantly tastes just like it sounds: A Chai Tea Latte with Pumpkin Spice. Soooo good.  My husband and I have been having a cup of this after dinner and it’s my new favorite fall drink to have at home!

3) Hugging People.  Just because we can all use an extra laugh throughout the day.  (If the video doesn’t work, click here to see it).  :)

    I am loving emergen-c. They add just a touch of flavour to water (which makes me drink waaaay more water), and they help me ward off cold and flu season.

    I sampled that pumpkin cream cheese at trader joe’s and was SO tempted to buy it. Now I kind of want to go back and get it!

    I need to get that spread! I’ve been loving Pirates Booty lately, once you start eating it, it’s hard to stop.

    I love pumpkin!!
    I think I will have to pick up those items next time I go to TJs.
    I did have to splurge (4 dollars poorer now) and got a pumpkin spiced latte at Starbucks the other day! Soo good!
