Although it may still be 80 degrees outside it’s officially fall time. This means seeing things like pumpkin spice jello in your grocery store and having an extra long line at your Starbucks, which you can thank the “PSL” for. You may have thought that this trend would eventually die out, however that is not the case. Fall time can be the best time for companies who put out fall flavored products. By doing this they seem up to date on the latest trends; and items that are limited edition are more desirable. These products can bring in a lot of money.  The pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks is the gold medal winner of fall. Since its creation in 2003 over 350 million have been sold and according to Nielsen data, the pumpkin spice latte has reached $488.7 million over the last year (from August 18, 2017 to August 18, 2018)  At Trader Joe’s they make sure you have enough pumpkin to last you a lifetime, here are some of the products you can enjoy:
