This ☝ is Stetson’s version of a Target run. 😂

With SO many limited-edition seasonal treats on the market for fall, we’re dying to know if there are any clear winners (or losers) among them. So we sent Stetson to Target to try all the fall things… or at least as many goodies as a person can fit into one of those red shopping baskets!

Here’s a look at what Stetson found on his epic Target run. ☝ Keep reading for a detailed breakdown of his fall haul and his honest opinion of these seasonal products.
If you’d like to watch Stetson sample the goods (or if you just want to catch another peek of him in his pumpkin PJs), you can watch a replay of his LIVE video here!

Archer Farms pumpkin spice almonds

Archer Farms Pumpkin Spice Almonds

These Archer Farms Pumpkin Spice Almonds are covered with a bourbon vanilla bean and pumpkin pie-spiced white chocolate coating. Stetson says,

Coated white chocolate almonds? Yes please! With almonds being one of my favorite snacks and now that I’m becoming a fan of pumpkin spice, I thought this was brilliant. They come in a mixture of orange and light tan-colored coatings, and would definitely look presentable in a candy dish for fall. Although they taste exactly like white chocolate-covered almonds, I really enjoyed that hint of pumpkin spice in there. I thought they were worth $3.69 for a 5.5-ounce bag, especially if you’re a fan of both almonds and pumpkin spice. Very tasty!

Califia Farms PSL cold brew

Califia Farms Pumpkin Spice Latte Cold Brew Coffee

Califia Farms Pumpkin Spice Latte is made with 100% Direct Trade Coffee, real pumpkin puree, and real spices. This cold brew is soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, carrageenan-free, kosher, vegan, and BPA-free for a guilt-free version of this traditionally indulgent treat. Stetson says,

This drink threw me for a loop. At first, I didn’t think I would like this. I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but after trying this dairy-free PSL cold brew, I ended up liking it a LOT! The pumpkin spice flavor was rich and blended well with the almond milk. I would definitely buy this drink again.


Bantam bagels - pumpkin spice

Bantam Bagels – Pumpkin Spice Frozen Bagel Bites

As seen on Shark Tank, Bantam Bagels are New York City’s original mini stuffed bagels. These limited-edition Pumpkin Spice Bantam Bagel Bites are crispy-on-the-outside cinnamon bagels stuffed with pumpkin spice cream cheese. Stetson says,

These were SO good and SO easy to make – just 20 seconds in the microwave per mini bagel. The texture of these bites was really chewy. The cream cheese inside is orange like pumpkin, and as soon as I bit into one it melted like butter with a great taste – straight up pumpkin spice! These were my absolute FAVORITE out of all the items I tasted. They were $4.99 for a 6-count box, and worth every penny.


Pumpkin Spice Jonny Pops

JonnyPops Pumpkin Spice & Cream Frozen Bars

The world definitely needs a pumpkin spice popsicle! These Pumpkin Spice & Cream JonnyPops are frozen, sweet, creamy, and gluten-free with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. Stetson says,

This popsicle was a bit melted by the time I got to try it, but it still had that YUM factor. To me, it tasted like pumpkin pie, but with a super creamy texture. I really enjoyed this product and thought it was very good. Originally priced at $3.99 for a 3-count box, I was able to use a 20% off Cartwheel offer to get a better deal! With only 3 popsicles in a box, you may want to buy these now while you can use that Cartwheel offer since they are on the pricier side for such a small box.

Hip Savings Tip: Now through September 14, get 20% off JonnyPops Frozen Desserts when you use the Cartwheel offer found on the Target app.


Maple Creme Oreos

Maple Creme OREOs

The sweet vanilla taste of the golden OREO cookie pairs perfectly with the flavor of maple syrup found in the creme filling of these Maple Creme OREOs. Stetson says,

I’m big fan of OREO cookies, and I like how they get creative with their unique flavors. These Maple Creme OREOs certainly look different from the traditional OREOs, with their golden brown outer layer and tan-colored filling. When I first bit into one, I immediately noticed the maple syrup flavor. It was an interesting taste, as I thought it had a bit of a cinnamon kick to it as well. I really enjoyed these, and think anyone else who loves both OREO cookies AND maple syrup, will like them too!


Chobani Pumpkin Spice Yogurt

Chobani Pumpkin & Spice Blended Greek Yogurt 

Chobani’s Pumpkin & Spice Blended Greek Yogurt is made with real pumpkin Chobani Greek Yogurt, blended with the seasonal spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. Stetson says,

This yogurt was so bland, it had me wondering if my “taster” was broken. It just tasted like plain yogurt to me. Even though it said “blended” on the container, I stirred and stirred, and even dug all the way to the bottom in case this was one of those fruit-on-the-bottom situations. Nope, it just tasted like plain yogurt, all the way down to the bottom of the container. This was bland, tasteless, and definitely my least favorite item from my fall haul.


Pumpkin Noosa yogurt

Noosa Pumpkin Yoghurt

Noosa puts its own spin on traditional pumpkin pie with this seasonal Pumpkin Yogurt. Its warm, rich spices and pumpkin puree pair perfectly with Noosa’s creamy, all-natural yogurt. Stetson says,

I never heard of this brand before, but I am glad I tried it. I really liked this product. It blends well as you stir it, and you get a really flavorful pumpkin spice taste. It was Iight on my tongue and had kind of a fluffy, creamy feel to it. If you’re a yogurt fan, I think you’ll enjoy Noosa Pumpkin too!

Hip Savings Tip: Now through September 21, get 10% off assorted varieties of Noosa Yogurt when you use the Cartwheel offer found on the Target app.


Ben & Jerry's pumpkin cheesecake flavorBen and Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream debuted in 2007 and became an instant hit! It’s Ben and Jerry’s homemade creamy cheesecake ice cream mixed with real pumpkin and swirled through with a generous vein of graham crackers. Stetson says,

This limited batch of goodness is every bit as delicious as it sounds. It tasted exactly like pumpkin cheesecake! If you’ve had the Pumpkin Pie Blizzard from Dairy Queen, I would say this tastes very similar. This ice cream is rich and creamy, with chunks of graham cracker crust running throughout the entire pint. I wish this would stay in stock forever! It’s definitely my runner up. The only thing I liked better than this ice cream were those Bantam Bagel Bites.

Hip Savings Tip: Now through September 27, save 50¢ on any one Ben & Jerry’s pint when you use the Cartwheel offer found on the Target app.


Mountain Dew VooDewMountain Dew VooDEW Mystery 12pk

Mountain Dew VooDEW soda is a new mystery flavor with a limited release for Halloween 2019. The clear color of this spooky soda makes it even more difficult to guess the mystery flavor, but it hasn’t stopped anyone from trying! This flavor has been compared to cotton candy, candy apples, citrusy cream soda, and even candy corn. People are all over the place on this one! Here’s what Stetson had to say:

I thought this Mountain VooDEW mystery flavor was fun. I had NO idea what I was going to get out of it. The packaging and cans have cool designs, and that much alone put me in the Halloween spirit. Although it’s very subtle, I did pick up a bit of an orange creamsicle taste. It wasn’t overbearing, and I really thought the drink tasted good. I have heard others compare it to the taste of Skittles. I think it’s fun to try this drink and see if you can guess the flavor. If you like orange soda or Mountain Dew, I think you’ll enjoy this!


Man carrying target shopping basket

Stetson’s final thoughts:

I really liked all of these items except for the Chobani yogurt, which I thought was really bland. My favorite treats by far were the Bantam Bagels with the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream being a close runner up. Go grab some seasonal goodies of your own and get ready for fall! Pumpkin PJs optional. 🎃


Keep up with all things Fall and Halloween right here!

    You forgot the new Starbucks creamer. Sooo good. Pumpkin and Cinnamon Dolce are delicious. Best coffee creamers I’ve ever had. $5

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Those do sound good! Thanks for the suggestion, Candace!

    • Kelly

      I’ll second the comment on Starbucks creamer. We’ve gone through 6 bottles in our house since I first spotted them in stores. Yes, it’s slightly pricier than others on the market, but it makes brewed coffee taste just like a Starbucks latte.

      In the end, I’m saving money!!

    • Nat

      Yes we love them and bought some to freeze.

  2. Dean

    The Archer farms pumpkin cookies with cream cheese filling are soooooooo good!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh yum! Thanks for sharing, Dean! I can’t wait to try them!

  3. Suzanne

    Oh my goodness!! I’m going to have to make a special trip to Target now lol! Those bagels look SO good!! As much as I live the PS stuff, their apple cinnamon pretzels are delicious too! I haven’t seen them yet, so hopefully they’re back this year!

      Thanks so much for the super sweet feedback, Sally! I’ll be sure to let him know!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome, Melissa! Glad you enjoyed this one!

  7. Amanda

    Archer Farms has some fall inspired trail mixes. They have Maple Raisin and Apple Cinnamon. They’re so yummy!!!! Cinnamon with the holiday season is my favorite. Definitely not good for my waistline but so good for my tummy.

  8. Shannon

    I love these posts with Stetson. He has such personality and looks like he would be a blast to work with!

    • Stetson

      I appreciate that a lot! I like to think I am a blast to work with. 😂 It’s a lot of fun doing this for you and I really am happy to see that you enjoy it!

  9. Jennifer

    I’m just here for the pumpkin PJ’s😂

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      LOL!

    • Stetson

      Let me tell you – I’ll be in them all Fall long that’s for sure. Hopefully around the house if I can help it. 😂

  10. cooper

    Love the Noosa yogurt one (They have pumpkin all year round too! – not at Target – they only carry that flavor during this time), but at my Walmart noosa pumpkin is carried all year round.

    • Kristi S.

      The Noosa yogurt is one of my favorite pumpkin items! The salted caramel is good too!

  11. Val

    The pumpkin spice bagels by Dave’s Killer bread is so delicious. Pop it in the toaster, spread some cream cheese and you’re good to go.

  12. Ruby C

    How does Stetson stay so slim??? He’s lucky to get to sample all those goodies. I’d definitely gain weight just even looking at everything!!!

    • Stetson

      Ooooh Ruby, let me tell you it catches up quick. Lol, but I try to sample things for you all while on the live. But sometimes I can’t help but indulge afterwards! I pretty much use it as a meal for the day for the live. But I do eat later as well. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Thanks for watching!

  13. sue

    I have to say…….I enjoy Stetsons take on things. It’s nice to have the male perspective on products. I am eating low carb., so I was living vicariously through his taste buds. Was ANYTHING low carb.? Last year, I injured myself an hour off the plane in New Orleans. I had surgery when I got home. During the recuperation my weight went up to 187 pounds. I am down to 157, thanks mostly to eating a low carb diet. I really want to keep the weight off. So, I have to stay away from all the high carb. sugary stuff. We are going into the danger seasons. (Thanksgiving and X-mas.)

    • Stetson

      Hi Sue, wowzers sounds like a bit of a rough time there. I really like that you are able to stick with low carb (I find it tough) that’s really neat. Nothing low carb from this that I noticed. The sugars were all there, but if you tune in sometime we may have low carb options! 🙂 I am happy to hear you are back on track and well. I really do appreciate the feedback and everyone’s feedback!

  14. Charmel

    Saw this post so I treated my son to a Target trip. We had way too much fun. I let him get anything he wanted that was fall inspired. He’s 12 so fun shopping trips with him are hard to come by. But today we had lots of laughs and he is so excited to try all his fun new food. I told him only one new item a day. Thanks Hip and Stetson for keeping us updated.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      That sounds like so much fun, Charmel! Your son sounds like he’s lucky to have an awesome mom!

  15. Sarah

    The B&J ice cream is my favorite fall treat!!! My husband isn’t a big cheesecake ice cream fan so I can get away with stocking up and buying a few to store in the freezer and nibble on in the fall and winter. It’s moms stash that no one else likes and I’m not about to tell them how good it really is. If I let my kids try it then it would be gone by the end of the day. My 6 year old son thinks its some kind of weird vegetable ice cream lol whatever.

  16. Gina

    Once again, Stetson amazes and entertains us with his male “spin” on stuff, thank you Stetson! Noosa is my fave brand of yogurt so I will for sure look for the Pumpkin Spice one now! Also, another PS food out there this season is the Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, which I bought the other day. The main flavor that hits you is the nutmeg, kind of a LOT. I didn’t care for them but if you’re a nutmeg fan, you’d probably dig these.
