It’s officially pumpkin season, which means pumpkin-flavored food & drink products are all over the supermarket! We tried over a dozen of them on our latest podcast episode, and these four are among the serious standouts. Give these seasonal finds a spin before they’re gone…

JonnyPops in Pumpkin Spice & Cream

1 pop: 120 calories, 7g total fat (4.5g sat fat), 20mg sodium, 15g carbs, <1g fiber, 14g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 6*

No joke: This may be the BEST pumpkin-flavored food find we’ve ever tasted. These pops are THAT good! Made with simple ingredients and nothing artificial, these frozen bars are rich, creamy, and all-around amazing. They taste exactly like freshly baked pumpkin pie, with just the right balance of cinnamon and other spices. 120 calories well spent! Click to locate… We found ours at Target. And give the other JonnyPops flavors a try while you’re at it.

Official Hungry Girl Rating: 11 out of 10!

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread

2 tbsp.: 70 calories, 5g total fat (3g sat fat), 110mg sodium, 6g carbs, 1g fiber, 4g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

Another home-run pumpkin product, this time from the brilliant minds at Trader Joe’s. This cream cheese has a dessert-like vibe to it… It almost tastes like pumpkin cheesecake! We tried it on bagel bites, but it would be equally delicious on light English muffins, whole-wheat crackers, and especially apple slices. Definitely worth a trip to TJ’s to stock up.

Chobani Pumpkin & Spice Blended Greek Yogurt

One 5.3-oz. container: 120 calories, 2.5g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 50mg sodium, 14g carbs, <1g fiber, 12g sugars, 11g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

There’s no shortage of pumpkin-flavored yogurts on shelves, but not all of them are worth sticking a spoon into. This limited-batch offering from Chobani, however, is worthy indeed! We love that it’s thick but not too thick, sweet but not too sweet, and perfectly spiced. And all that protein makes this ‘gurt super satisfying. Enter your zip code on the product page to locate near you, or just look for it in the yogurt section at supermarkets nationwide.

RXBAR Pumpkin Spice

1 bar: 210 calories, 8g total fat (1g sat fat), 130mg sodium, 24g carbs, 5g fiber, 14g sugars, 12g protein -- SmartPoints® value 7*

RXBARs are so filling and packed with nutritious ingredients… They’ve got a dense, chewy texture that’s really fantastic. Made mostly with egg whites, nuts, dates, and (of course) pumpkin, this limited-edition flavor won us over, bigtime. It’s loaded with protein & fiber and great for between-meal hunger busting. P.S. RX also makes Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter! Check your local supermarket, order via rxbar.com, or one-click them over on Amazon, while supplies last.
