Joe’s Pumpkin O’s
October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
The Pumpkin Season magic has made its way to our venerable, pseudo-eponymous cereal. Making their first appearance this year are Trader Joe's Pumpkin O's, pumpkified Joe's O's. Round like pumpkins (rounder, actually) and fun like jack o'lanterns (maybe more fun, since you can eat them), Pumpkin O's are being made exclusively for Trader Joe's, by the same supplier that makes the original O's.
Pumpkin O's are made with a blend of US-grown whole grain brown rice and whole grain oats from Canada, and sweetened with real cane sugar & brown cane sugar. Unlike some "pumpkin flavored" cereals you may find in other stores, these are made with actual pumpkin, the real deal. A bit of cinnamon hints at pumpkin pie. You may be tempted to top these with whipped cream, and that would likely be beyond delicious. We think, though, that cold milk is the best partner to these O's, for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner. Combine them with our Pumpkin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds, and some Country Pumpkin Granola for a fresh take on trail mix. However you plan to enjoy them, be sure to come in and get them quickly—they're only here for Pumpkin Season, and when they're gone, we won't have more 'til the season rolls around again next year.
We're selling each 12 ounce box of Joe's Pumpkin O's for $2.49. You'll find them in our cereal aisle.
