A mom's (my) take: Here's what I love about these: they're actually made with pumpkin puree...they're mini-size...they have just the right amount of crunch and spices. The very first thing I noticed was the gorgeous scent of fall as soon as I opened the carton. I immediately had visions of sweaters, boots, kicking through fallen leaves...even if it is in the 90s today. These biscotti are delicious on their own and would be perfection with a cappuccino.
4.5 out of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: These are an awesome way to kick off the fall season. I can't really smell much because of allergies, but I'm sure they smell wonderful. The feel of it is just right; not rock-hard, but not too soft to where it crumbles everywhere. That last factor is a huge plus for biscotti. The taste is definitely very pumpkin-y, but sort of mediocre. There isn't any wow factor or special flavor that makes me want to give these a top-tier review, but nonetheless, they are very good!
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Here's what else we've been loving this week:


  1. I so get the allergies:) If it is any consolation now..mine are almost gone..but all my teenage of my daughters and a grandson (Noah Jack)has them too..

    They must be good:)

  2. I love these reviews. Is there any way you could post the nutritional information when you do them? Thanks :)

  3. Well now - I have a stop to make a TJ's after work!!! Man oh man!! My weakness!

  4. These cookies are horrible. so horrible i must eat them all to save my family the pain and least thats what I tell them =P The almond ones are even better nom

  5. Really in the mood for these cookies bad I don't have a Trader Joes near me. Guess I'll just have to admire your photos and post for now haha. Great post!

  6. These are yummy, if a little hard. Two of them have 110 calories.

  7. These are my new favs. I'm already planning my Thanksgiving cheesecake and am thinking that with a few pulses of a food processor these will make a delicious crust!

  8. I'm so happy that fall is here! These sound well worth adding to my TJ's shopping list. I just think your mother & son reviews are the sweetest! <3
