Looking for a pumpkin treat that’s not the usual pumpkin spice? From crunchy crackers to pie-flavored protein bars and decadent yogurts, there are plenty of fall-flavored snacks in the supermarket that you’ll want to stock up on this season. Instead of grabbing your go-to Starbucks PSL—which packs in a whopping 380 calories and 50 grams of sugar per Grande with 2 percent milk—save yourself from a dietary felony and reach for these better-for-you picks instead.
Noosa Pumpkin Yogurt
Noosa transforms pumpkin pie into the most dessert-like yogurt you’ll love to spoon into this season. The probiotic-rich snack is made with real pumpkin as well as—get this—cream cheese for added creaminess. Because this tub is higher in sugar than the picks we usually recommend, be sure to stick to the four-ounce serving size.
