The pros: Trader Joe's Organic Frosted Pumpkin Toaster Pastries are on par with the other varieties of Organic Frosted Toaster Pastries.
The cons: This is a seasonal flavor, so if you see it or like it, you might want to stock up.
The verdict: When I wrote a post about the other varieties of toaster pastries, several readers told me to look forward to the coming of the pumpkin variety (thank you to all of you who gave me the heads up to look for this). Well, September is here and this product has made it's triumphant return. So if you can't get enough of pumpkin, here is just one more thing to add to your cart.
This has all the other elements that you would expect in a Trader Joe's Organic Frosted Pastry: it will remind you of a pop tart. These are frosted just like Cinnamon and Brown Sugar variety and the Strawberry variety. These do seem just a bit more frosted than other varieties that I've had. There is no sugar crunch on these like the Cherry Pomegrante variety. They currently do not sell an unfrosted group, so for those of you who aren't fans of the frosting, you are out of luck.
These are best when toasted. The flavor here shines when slightly warmed through. These have a more sweet pumpkin flavor than spiced. It's not overwhelming though. So if you need a break from the usual three varieties, then you have a fourth flavor to look forward to. If you haven't had these before, then let me quickly give you an overview: they are basically Trader Joe's answer to Pop Tarts, but are organic and not as heavily frosted. Tasty and delicious.
For $2.69 these are priced in line with the other toaster pastries. Fun seasonal flavor and worth a try if you are all about the seasonal flavors especially pumpkin.
