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.
