October 7th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
In our quest to have pumpkin represented on as many shelves and sections of our store as possible, we've gone where few others have gone before us. And we like this place, where pumpkins reign supreme for a brief, beautiful span of time each autumn. We like it because it has brought us a host of inventive and intriguing products, including Trader Joe's Pumpkin Soup, returning here for an encore season. This is a quick & easy, smooth & pumpkin-y soup that you can pour from the box, heat a bit on the stove or in the microwave and enjoy in just minutes. It's made with Wisconsin-grown pumpkins and accented with warm spices. Top it with a dollop of sour cream or crème fraîche, or give it an ingenious, Indian twist with some coconut milk (or coconut cream) and curry powder.
Like much of our pumpkin collection, Pumpkin Soup will be around during Pumpkin Season, and then gone until the Great Pumpkin arises once more (that's next year, by the way). If you're a fan, remember, "he who hesitates is without Pumpkin Soup." We're selling each 17.6 ounce box for $1.79, a price that makes stocking up affordable. You'll find it on our grocery shelves.
