Good news! According to Weather.com, today is the last 90-degree day we'll have for the foreseeable future! Huzzah!

Bad news! The day after Labor Day is now officially the start of All-Things-Fall season (bye bye, white pants), including the rollout of every kind of pumpkin-spice-flavored thing ever. For this edition of our recurring "Pumpkin Everything" blog, here are three gourd-geous (see what we did there?) foodstuffs you can find now at your grocer:

1. belVita Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Biscuits: According to a survey by the brand, a whopping 93 percent of Americans consider Pumpkin Spice to be "the flavor of fall!" SHOCKING! (Sorry, dried leaves. Maybe next year.) That stat informed the newest flavor of belVita's breakfast biscuits, which are on shelves now through the end of November.

2.  Thomas' Pumpkin-Spice Bagels & English Muffins: For those of you worried that this flavor wouldn't make its return this year, you can all stop holding your collective breaths. They're back. The pumpkin-flavored bagels and crumpets are reportedly the most popular of the five limited-edition flavors, and are made with real pumpkin (trend alert) instead of flavoring and coloring, for those of you who care about that sort of thing.

3. Chobani Flip Pumpkin Harvest Crisp: What does your Greek yogurt need more of? Pumpkin, of course! The yogurt magnates at Chobani released their "limited batch" Flip last week. One side contains a healthy scoop of pumpkin-flavored Greek yogurt and the other side is a half-healthy-half-not mix of pie crust pieces, candied pumpkin seeds and pecans. Dig in, basics.
