When pumpkin-infused products are coming at you from every direction (a.k.a. RIGHT NOW), it's hard to know which ones are worth trying. We tested oodles of 'em, and these finds definitely deserve spots in your seasonal shopping cart!

If you like pumpkin lattes, you'll love this swirly blend of pumpkin and coffee ice cream. (You should also check out our 70-calorie PSL swap!) The flavor is perfection, and the creaminess is top notch. And even though it isn't labeled as light ice cream, it totally is!

It might sound like an odd combo, but this stuff is like spreadable pumpkin cream cheese! And the sweetness isn’t overdone. It's impossibly delicious and totally addictive.
