This Pumpkin Walks Into A Bar...
October 7th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Last fall, we introduced Trader Joe's This Pumpkin Walks Into A Bar... a seasonally spot-on addition to our much-loved line of cereal bars. We were immediately met with a level of cereal bar excitement heretofore unknown in these here parts. While it wasn't full-fledged mania, the excitement did cause many to fill their carts with multiple boxes of bars. (That led us to wonder exactly how many cereal bars one could actually eat…) Some seasonal items make their debut and never return. This one is definitely back for an encore!
Like its naturally fruit-flavored siblings on the shelf, Pumpkin Walks is made with real fruit -- in this case pumpkin -- and without artificial flavors or preservatives. In honor of the flavors of the season, we've added spices like clove, cinnamon and nutmeg to give it a real "pumpkin pie" vibe. If you put it in the toaster for 30 seconds or so, that flavor will intensify, and you might even be tempted to add a scoop of ice cream atop the bar. We won't stop you. We enjoy them most at breakfast or as a mid-day snack, times when a sidecar of ice cream might not be at the ready.
However you decide to enjoy them, This Pumpkin Walks Into A Bar... cereal bars will only be available during "pumpkin season" here at Trader Joe's. When they're gone, you'll have to wait until next year to satisfy your bad-joke-setup-sounding-pumpkin-craving-satisfying cereal bars. What you never have to wait for at Trader Joe's is a good value, and these are no exception. We're selling each 7.8 ounce box of six for $1.99.
