First Trader Joe's Fall Haul of 2023

My fridge knows two lovers, Hello Fresh and Trader Joe's. This week, my Trader Joe's fully stocked up on its autumnal selection and despite the 100º temperatures keeping Phoenix in a chokehold, I am ready to embrace sweaters and pumpkin spiced everything.


That being said, this is everything I stocked up on for my first Trader Joe's fall haul of 2023. Let's get into it:

Espiral Vinho Verde

10/10

This has been my favorite wine for the past three weeks. This is a crisp white wine from the Vinho Verde region of northern Portugal with notes of green apple and melon. It is perfect warm-weather wine, which will probably hold me over until late November here in Phoenix.


Maple Spiced Nut Mix

10/10

This barely lasted a few days in my house. It is a smaller can at 8.5 oz, but has maple rosemary almonds and pecans with crisp pepitas for some complementary crunch, and dried cranberries for a little tartness. I took this to work when I didn't have time for breakfast and Max & I snacked on this during Vanderpump Rules binges. Will definitely buy again this season.


Pumpkin Maple Bacon Flavored Stuffies Dog Treats

?/10

Steve is still working through his BarkBox treats, so we haven't gotten to these yet, but there is not much Steve doesn't like. I'm expecting a retroactive 10/10 but will follow up.


Carmel Apple Mochi

3/10

I really thought I was going to love this. It was the first fall item I put into my cart and I wish I skipped. I miss their espresso mochi so much and thought this was fun for the season, but the caramel rice dough is so artificial tasting and the apple ice cream is too sweet on the palate. I am not a fan, unfortunately. Max thought it was good, but he has a sweet tooth. I will not purchase this again.


Honeycrisp Apple Granola

9/10

Absolutely love this granola. I brought it along with the spiced nuts when I didn't have time for breakfast. Max always packs it for his work lunches. I don't love apples, but I LOVE dried apples and it adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the crunch of the granola.


Honeycrisp Apple Scented Candle

10/10

So good, smells like fall. Crisp, sweet and fills my apartment with its scent.


Vanilla Pumpkin Scented Candle

10/10

Have not lit this yet, waiting to go through the honeycrisp apple candle. Smells absolutely fantastic.


Non-Daily Pumpkin Oat Beverage

7/10

I put this in my homemade cold brew in the mornings as a way to try and curb my Starbucks spendings. If I use too much, it tastes too overpowering and kinda yucky. I don't love coffee that is too sweet, which might be why if I put too much I don't like it. In the future, I think I'll skip this one and pick up the maple flavored one.


The Delicious Monster Wine

4/10

Picked it up solely for the cute monstera themed bottle, wine inside was not great. I still finished it though lol


Pumpkin Sticky Toffee Cakes

?/10

Have not tried yet, but am very excited to. Currently, severely full of Chinese food with no room for dessert.


One Seasonal Flower Bouquet

10/10

Absolutely beautiful with a fun tropical flower and lots of beautiful greens. Still doing well after about a week. Very happy with how it looks and I love it on my dining table.


Two Small Flower Bouquet

8/10

Max took one of them to work for his new 3 pm show on AZFamily, which he was able to use as a set piece in the newsroom for some live hits. The other one is in a cute terracotta vase I got from my apartment complex as a consolation gift (that's a long story, take a look at my Google reviews for context). It is still looking good, although one carnation has already fallen off.


Trader Joe's Fall Items I Need in the Future:

I'll update this post as I try my new items and I'll update as I try the newest fall items!


Peace, love and pumpkin spice <3
