The Best & Worst New Apple-Flavored Foods This Fall—Ranked!

Sick of pumpkin spice everything? Here are the best new items that apple lovers will fall hard for.
FACT CHECKED BY Meaghan Cameron

It's perfectly OK to be tired of all things pumpkin spice and instead want a different fall flavor to enjoy. Fortunately, food brands have started to figure that out and are releasing more and more apple-flavored foods to compete with the hyped fall flavor. Apples evoke all those cozy fall feelings of spending time with friends and family picking them off trees before drinking a delicious apple cider while clad in flannel. See what we mean? Totally cozy!

If you're looking to add more apple-flavored foods to your life this season, you're in luck, because there are a few new items on the market that are ready to come home with you.

Ahead, we've ranked them all based on nutrition so you know which ones are the ultimate indulgence and which ones you can snack on a little more regularly. (And, in case you're planning to bake some apple desserts, these are the best apples to use for every dessert!)
