I like pumpkin spice as much as the next gal. Apparently it's quite a growing category of products. I like pumpkin pie spiced products even better when they are American made so I can trust what's in them. Today I'm sharing my favorites.
Who says pumpkin spice should only go in lattes? Some of the foods, and beauty items, I've seen are quite crazy when it goes to adding these seasonal spices. Pumpkin spice gum. Pumpkin spice chips. Pumpkin spice cat litter?! Those might be outlandish, but all of these American made nicely pumpkin spiced products are worth trying.
According to the Nielson Company, sales of pumpkin spice products have grown 79% from 2011, raking in $361 million last year. Now I know why Starbucks was already telling us about their Pumpkin Spice Latte's in August!
Pumpkin Spice Products Made in the USA
Angie's Boomchickapop was born out Dan and Angie Bastian's Minnesota garage and is now a BOOMing business that's popping (get it?) up across the nation's grocery shelves. They've made a limited edition, Holidrizzle Pumpkin Spice Popcorn. It tastes like cinnamon toast crunch cereal drizzled in white chocolate and sprinkled with pumpkin spice, without being cloyingly sweet. It's hard not to eat the entire bag in one sitting. Open it with others around so they can help you eat it.
snacking chocolate comes in a crunchy dark chocolate pumpkin seed variety. It's a healthy, simple way to get your pumpkin and chocolate fix all in one. Note: This products doesn't contain pumpkin spice, but we love this healthy snack for its pumpkin seeds!

I love Buff Bake nut butters because they're so flavorful. So when I saw Buff Bake
Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter, I knew it would be a winner, and boy was I right. (I do love being right!) The butter has a true pumpkin flavor because it has pumpkin powder and pumpkin pie spice mix, and nothing artificial.
It offers 11 grams of protein per serving because the peanut butter is mixed with chia & flax seeds. It's fall in a jar.
Garden of Flavor
was founded by Lisa, a Certified Holistic Educator and Raw Food Chef. All of Garden of Flavor juices are cold-pressed, organic, never heated and made from fresh vegetables, fruits and nuts. This season they have a Pumpkin Spice Vegan Nut and Seed Mylk. It tastes like Fall. I only use nut and seed “milk” at home, this was an exciting find for me.
It's made with all organic ingredients including cashew mylk, pumpkin, ginger and tumeric root, sprouted rice powder and hemp protein powder, hemp seeds, agave necatr, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and vanilla.
The mylk has 14 grams of plant based protein and probiotics, along with inflammation fighters – ginger root and turmeric root, which offer a spicy kick. It's the right consistency, the perfect sweetness, and an amazingly fresh pumpkin spice flavor. They are available at Whole Foods Market in OH, KY, PA, NJ, MD, DC, and VA.

Everything about Nicobella Organics Pumpkin Chai Vegan Organic Dark Chocolate Truffles

They are soy- and dairy-free, making them a great clean treat to have anytime of year. These truffles are decadent without being overly sweet. I love the consistency and the slight hint of spices that doesn't overpower the chocolate pumpkin flavor.
yogurt is like none other. Koel Thomae, Noosa's co-founder, is an Aussie ex-pat who’d been living in Colorado and sought out Rob Graves, a fourth-generation dairy farmer, to make its yogurt. You can taste the difference too. It's the creamiest and the richest and most decadent yogurt I've ever had. I love the fruit with yogurt because it isn't too sweet, and was happy to find the pumpkin variety. It's like eating pumpkin pie cheesecake, but with less guilt.

Star Hill Boxcarr Pumpkin Porter: Normally I wouldn't entertain the though of drinking a pumpkin beer; it's just not my thing. I was at a friend's Octoberfest beer party, and had the chance to try a local Virginia beer, Star Hill Boxcarr Pumpkin Porter. It's a traditional English-style Brown Porter with pumpkin added to the mash. I didn't know what it was upon sipping it (as our beer bracket was a blind taste test), and it was my favorite among a beer bracket of sixteen beers. To me, the flavor had more of a gingerbread taste, while finishing with a subtle pumpkin taste. Get your hands on it.
