Yes, I know I reviewed other varieties of macarons from Trader Joes. I've even included a recipe to make your own macarons. I am very well aware that I've encouraged people to Deep Fat Fry your Macarons. This review is on Trader Joe's Pumpkin Macarons a seasonal flavor that makes an appearance in the fall.
However, like Christmas in August, it's September and everything is coming up Pumpkin. It's still early and I haven't had my fill of pumpkin just let, I figured I'd give these a go.

What did I think of them? They were very good without over doing it on the pumpkin. It is very clear that other spice were front and center as well.

Yes, but in addition to the other flavors, I know not everyone is a fan of the pumpkin craze. Maybe I'll keep a box in the freezer for myself. For special occasions. So I don't have to share.
