It's Not Just For Pies!
If we could have come up with a more inclusive name for Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie Spice, we definitely would have done so. It's not that we don't like the name; it's just that in some ways it strikes us as rather limiting. Then again, when you say "Pumpkin Pie Spice," people generally know exactly what you're talking about, so, well, we're sticking with that name. Unless, of course, you have a better one.
Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie Spice is a sweet, warm blend of cinnamon, ginger, citrus, nutmeg, cloves and just a hint of black pepper. It is, quite unsurprisingly, ideal for pumpkin pie. It's also excellent sprinkled over things like sweet potatoes, Butternut Squash, and applesauce. Most retailers sell Pumpkin Pie Spice in smallish jars, figuring you don't need much. We sell it in a full-size, 1.8 ounce jar, because ours is so good we think you'll want to use it often. And though ours is larger than most, it's also less expensive. We're selling each jar for $1.99, every day. You'll find it in our spice section.
