October 7th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Our immense love of anything and everything pumpkin, combined with our continuing quest to make breakfast more interesting led us to create Trader Joe's Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins. Similar in many ways to a carrot cake muffin, here the carrot element is replaced with real pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices -- by now you've surely come to expect this kind of treatment from us during Pumpkin Season, yes?
We partnered with a supplier who's well-versed in both the art of muffins, and the science of yummy fillings, so the smooth, creamy cream cheese filling was a natural match. Moist texture, sweet & savory flavors, and a tart-sweet-tangy center? Yes, this is breakfast food at its most interesting. Also interesting is our price of $3.99 for each package of four Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, significantly less than you’ll pay for muffins of similar quality & style elsewhere. You'll find them in our fresh bakery section.
