Some of the biggest food holidays of the year are nearly upon us, and while Thanksgiving staples like crispy fried onions and canned cranberry sauce are now placed prominently on supermarket end caps, a whole host of new products have quietly snuck onto shelves as well.

This month’s standouts include sweet treat-inspired protein bars, canned peppermint mocha lattes, virtuous veggie burgers, and more. As you fill your physical and virtual grocery carts with weekly essentials and take stock of what you need for next week’s Thanksgiving feast, consider keeping an eye out for these brand-new products too.

1. Dr. Praeger’s Classic Veggie Burgers

Dr. Praeger’s (most known for their frozen offerings) announced their first foray into the refrigerated section of the grocery store with this classic veggie burger. I love a juicy beef burger, but I was pleasantly surprised by these patties. I like that it doesn’t have fake meat in it and is instead just jam-packed with veggies, quinoa, and brown rice. I also love that I can just pop it out of the fridge and heat it up on the spot.

2. The Rustik Oven Artisan Bread

Carbs are my love language. These slow-baked artisanal loaves (now available at grocery stores nationwide) taste like they were freshly baked. Crunchy and golden on the outside and fluffy on the inside, you’d think you picked this up from a local bakery. The slices are big so I’ve taken to cutting them in half for a sweet and savory breakfast: avocado toast on one half and Nutella on the other.

3. Del Monte Veggieful Pocket Pies

These microwavable plant-based pies make a convenient lunch or afternoon snack with minimal effort. The crust has cauliflower in it (!) and they’re stuffed to the gills with spinach, artichokes, and cheese. Each pie has one serving of veggies and 10 grams of protein. (You can’t say the same about all pies!)

4. La Colombe Peppermint Mocha Draft Latte

I’m obsessed with La Colombe draft lattes and I almost always have at least one in my fridge for whenever I need a boost of caffeine. This seasonal flavor comes in a cute can and has a subtle pepperminty taste that balances the mocha flavor well. I’ll definitely be drinking these sweet pick-me-ups all season long.

5. Imperfect Foods Holiday Box

Imperfect Foods works to eliminate food waste by saving foods with cosmetic defects that are still perfectly good to eat and delivering them to subscribers at a discounted cost (compared to typical grocery store prices). This Holiday Box (which is available for purchase for subscription members and nonmembers) is packed with snacks that helped save eight pounds of food from going to waste. 

My favorite item in the box is easily the Nutty Toffee Morsels (they remind me of Almond Roca), followed close behind by the Dried Mango (which is “imperfect” because it’s considered too dark to be sold in stores).

6. Baileys Apple Pie

Apple pie a la mode meets Baileys iconic Irish cream liqueur for a fall-flavored drink that sips smoothly over ice, mixed into coffee, or drizzled over your Thanksgiving pies. This gives me the warm, fuzzy feels of a Pumpkin Spice Latte, with a warm kick of alcohol.

Buy: Baileys Apple Pie, $24.99 for 750ml at Target

7. Califia Farms Dark Chocolate Truffle Creamer

This creamer checks off a bunch of boxes for me. It’s dairy-free, has only 15 calories and 2 grams of added sugar per serving, and tastes deliciously creamy and chocolatey. It’s made with almond milk and coconut cream and makes my morning coffee taste like dessert.

8. ONE Maple Glazed Doughnut Minis

These little granola bars are adorable and just the right size for a quick snack. Each bar has 80 calories, 7 grams of protein, and less than 1 gram of sugar — which might come as a surprise to you when you taste the sweet maple flavor.

9. Duncan Hines Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Flavored Boxed Cake Mix and Creamy Hot Cocoa Frosting

The package design on this cake mix brought me right back to my childhood, enjoying Swiss Mix packets on a snowy day. Imagine the nostalgia of that experience BAKED INTO A CAKE and frosted with icing that tastes like hot chocolate too.
