This season's array of pumpkin-flavored foods goes way beyond your average PSL. From cereal to protein bars to smoothies, here are some of our favorites. 

Pumpkin Spice Cheerios

These flavorful O's are a delicious taste of fall for babies, big kids, or (ahem) grown-ups. The ingredient list includes nutmeg, cloves, and real pumpkin puree. Made from oats so naturally gluten-free, Pumpkin Spice Cheerios are only available until December. No judgment if you slurp the milk. ($2.50 for 12 oz.; $3.98 for 21 oz.)

G.H. Cretors Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn

Sweet, salty, and downright addictive this caramel corn would be a perfect snack on Halloween, or heck, any other day this fall. (A P.S.A. for your pumpkin spice popcorn: remember popcorn is a choking hazard for kids under age four.) Available at Rite Aid, Walgreens, Target, and Costco ($3.99-$4.79 a bag)

Chobani Pumpkin Harvest Crisp "Flip" Yogurt

Who says you can't have your pie and eat it too? Chobani's low-fat pumpkin yogurt cup, topped with piecrust pieces, pecans, and glazed pumpkin seeds, is a healthier alternative to this season's favorite dessert. Did we mention there are 12 grams of protein? ($1.49 per container) 

La Colombe Pumpkin Spice Draft Latte

Yes, a certain Seattle-based coffee chain may have started the pumpkin spice latte craze, but we're partial to La Colombe's Pumpkin Spice Draft Latte. Subtly sweet and satisfyingly creamy, this cold coffee beverage comes in cans making it as portable as it is delicious. Available at Whole Foods, Wegmans, and Harris Teeter ($12 for a four-pack)

Even healthy snacks have gotten into the pumpkin spice game. These RXBARs are packed with protein, fiber, and pumpkin-y goodness. The best part? No added sugars. Available at Whole Foods and Trader Joes. ($2.49 a bar)

Jamba Juice Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

Craving some pumpkin flavor more substantial than a latte while you're on the go? Jamba Juice to the rescue! The juice chain has introduced its seasonal Pumpkin Protein Smoothie, made with pumpkin (of course), whey protein, chia seeds, almond milk, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice. ($6.35 for 16 oz)

Siggi's Pumpkin & Spice Yogurt
