They’ve also had the Awesome Pan out a few times before, but new seasonal colors this week include matte black, green, and orange. ALDI’s is a much cheaper dupe, if you’ve been looking for something like this.

sweet potato casserole

What else is back? Well, Season’s Choice sweet potato casserole is a seasonal fave, and you can find it out in the frozen section this week (see price in store).

pumpkin snickerdoodles

We also have several more general seasonal fall flavored foods to choose from, including Bake Shop pumpkin or pecan mini tarts, $5.89, Bake Shop pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies, $3.95, and Priano turkey cranberry or bourbon sweet potato ravioli, $3.39.

Lastly, why not get started on stocking up foods for this year’s Thanksgiving feast? A number of options here, such as:

  • liveGfree gluten free chicken or turkey stuffing, $3.49
