The 16 best vegan pumpkin spice products to try this fall


For those who were sticking it out, it’s officially September, which makes perfectly fine to sip something cinnamon and sweet without wanting to take the plunge. Pumpkin spice has become as synonymous with fall as gingerbread is at Christmas and chocolates at Valentine’s Day. Well-designed pumpkin things bring joy. They not only taste great, they make us feel cozy, comforted, and a little bit festive. And that’s what we are here for. Granted, there are many pumpkin products out there, and not all are winners. Here are the 16 best vegan pumpkin spice products you can get this year.

Note: This list does not include a few pumpkin spice products that came out early (in August). Check out this article to see what you missed.


1Daiya Pumpkin Cheesecake

Daiya may be known for their vegan cheese, but the cheesecake line she launched in 2016 really shows what the company can do. Made with a classic graham cracker crust and a dense, creamy cheesecake filling infused with just the right amount of pumpkin spice, this treat always pops into potlucks and fall dinners.

2Purely Elizabeth Cinnamon Pumpkin Old Fashioned Granola

While we love to keep the pumpkin spice out of our yogurt, we don’t mind a crispy fall-flavored topping. This slightly sweet granola incorporates organic pumpkin seeds and cinnamon into the mix, which means it tastes like real food, not a food lab approximation. We love the texture of this granola, not too big and perfect for sprinkling everything from dairy-free yogurt to ice cream. Of course, there is always the option of the mouth bag.

3Gigantic Shattering Pumpkin

At a certain age, we think we have tried everything when it comes to chocolate bars. Anything “new” is really just a derivative of a familiar favorite. But it really is something new. Gigantic’s Smashing Pumpkin bar is a nutty, gooey and spicy pumpkin treat, drizzled with dark chocolate. This is sure to be the “it” candy bar of the spooky season.

4Peet’s Cold Brew Cold Foam

This VegNews editor orders one thing and one thing from Peet’s: a hot little soy latte. I don’t make “fu-fu” drinks… until now. This drink is mostly a cold brew – the only sweetener comes from the intensely scented pumpkin spiced cold oatmeal foam on top. Once that creamy layer dissolves in the coffee, the result is a slightly sweet drink that still tastes like coffee, but also makes you dance happily with pumpkin spice. This drink is a game-changer.

5Nature’s Bakery Fig Pumpkin Spice Bars

Take a Fig Newton. Add real pumpkin puree and warming spices. Take out the high fructose corn syrup. This is a spiced fig pumpkin bar from Nature’s Bakery. Essentially, they’re healthy enough to satisfy parents and tasty enough to hand out on Halloween (without being labeled as the dreaded health food house).

6Sjaaks’ Pumpkin Melk Chocolate Bites

We are waiting for more Halloween to snack on Halloween candy. These vegan chocolates infused with pumpkin spice are just too good to resist. The pumpkin-shaped pieces are perfect for those looking for a sweeter, less bitter chocolate bite (looking at you, vegans who don’t like dark chocolate). Save some for the kids when October 31st rolls around.

9Wild Friends Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Mix

Not to be confused with Pumpkin Butter, which is a sweet and reduced pumpkin puree, this nut butter spread offers the comfort and familiarity of peanut butter with a hint of sweet, comforting spice. Spread it on freshly baked pumpkin bread, your morning toast, or drizzle with cozy cinnamon oatmeal.

tenFreeze the squeezed pumpkin

This vegan chain is known for its cold-pressed juices, but there is a select group of customers who bypass the alluring display of juices and head straight to the serving machines for a gel. Made with juice, not dairy, these frozen treats are churned and topped like fro-yo. It really is something you have to taste to understand. For the fall season, customers can enjoy the Pumpkin Freeze. Granola butter, vegan mini marshmallows, pecan praline pieces are highly recommended toppings.

11Almond and Pumpkin Creamer with Silk Spices

12Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bagels

Pumpkin Everything has officially arrived at Trader Joe’s, and while there are about a dozen different vegan pumpkin products that deserve a place in your basket, these pumpkin bagels are worth placing on top (for practical and figurative reasons, you don’t want to overwrite them!). While their flavor is unique, they work with a number of different spreads, including plain cream cheese, Miyoko’s cinnamon cream cheese, or a large knob of butter. Pro tip: Use it to make this pumpkin bread pudding.

13Jojo’s Spicy Pumpkin Bites

These layered candies taste like something you would buy in a paper doily at See’s Candy, but not as sweet. Each two-bite chocolate bar is filled with pumpkin-spiced granola butter and topped with gluten-free pumpkin seed granola. They’re basically a fun-sized candy bar made with real food.
