Admit it, you get at least a tiny bit giddy when pumpkin spice season (otherwise known as fall) rolls around. But Starbucks is far from the only company featuring the flavor—many brands have jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon and created their own seasonally spiced treats. Many make us wonder why someone didn't think of it sooner (hello, pumpkin-spice oatmeal), but some, well...we'll let you be your own judge. If you're feeling adventurous, try these seasonal (and sometimes strange) pumpkin-flavored foods.

Oatmeal

We're big fans of starting the morning with a heart-healthy bowl of oatmeal. For a fast, easy, and seasonal take on this fiber-filled breakfast, Quaker has rolled out a pumpkin spice version of its convenient instant packets. Quaker Pumpkin Spice Limited Edition Instant Oatmeal ($8, amazon.com)Â

Cereal

For another way to begin your day, chow down on a bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats layered with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger. Though this cereal is high in fiber, at 6 grams per serving, watch your portions—it's also fairly high in sugar. Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Pumpkin Spice ($11, amazon.com)Â

Yogurt

Get a healthy serving of protein-packed Greek yogurt AND your pumpkin fix in one sitting with Chobani’s latest seasonal option. Oh and don’t worry, the fall flavor invasion doesn’t stop with the pumpkin yogurt—Chobani's grab-and-go cup also comes with piecrust crumbles, crunchy pecans & salty-sweet glazed pumpkin seeds. Chobani Flip Limited Batch Pumpkin Harvest Crisp ($2, freshdirect.com)

Granola

Just in case you feel like Chobani's seasonal yogurt hasn't quite reached its pumpkin potential, have no fear; you can top it off with pumpkin spice granola. Archer Farms Granola Pumpkin Spice ($3, target.com)Â

Pancakes & Waffles

A weekend brunch at home wouldn't be complete without some delicious fresh-off-the-griddle pancakes. Sure, you could whip up some pumpkin pancakes from scratch, OR you could take a shortcut with Williams Sonoma's spiced mix. Williams-Sonoma Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle Mix ($12, williams-sonoma.com)

Trail Mix

If you want to take the flavors of fall with you everywhere you go, grab a pack of Archer Farms pumpkin spice trail mix to snack on anytime, anywhere. Archer Farms Pumpkin Spice Monster Trail Mix ($3, target.com)
