If pumpkin brings to mind jack-o'-lanterns, pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice lattes, you're behind the times. Pumpkin is a season in the food world, synonymous with autumn.

It's a flavor that lends a certain "fall-ness" to every food (and drink) product you can think of ... and many you never dreamed of.

Here's a roundup of some of the healthier offerings we've noticed in Pumpkin Season 2015:

12 new pumpkin-flavored foods you gotta try

Yogurt: There’s no shortage of pumpkin-flavored yogurts. Noosa thick, creamy yogurt joined by a layer of spicy pumpkin was so popular when it rolled out at Target last fall that it’s now available year-round at major stores. Chobani and Trader Joe’s both make pumpkin Greek yogurt. If you prefer to drink your pumpkin-flavored yogurt, try Lifeway Pumpkin Spice Kefir. It has a pretty low amount of added sugar per cup (8 grams), which is a rare find in flavored yogurt.

Drinks: But wait! The pumpkin-flavored beverages don’t stop at kefir. So Delicious will be rolling out a pumpkin coconut milk, and Polar Seltzer will make an essence-of-pumpkin fizzy water.

Snacks: If your love of pumpkin endures beyond the fall, you’ll be happy to know that Laurel Hill makes pumpkin seed tortilla chips year-round. They’re slightly sweet and spicy — an  addictive variation on the salty, crunchy tortilla chip. Planters seasonally produces Pumpkin Spice Almonds. If you like bars, the Spiced Pumpkin Pie Clif Bar is one to try: Apples, raisins, rolled oats and brown rice syrup join pumpkin in this vitamin-fortified bar. Kashi also makes a Pumpkin Spice Flax bar.

Dinner: Three Bridges Ancient Grains Chicken Sausage and Sweet Pumpkin with Sage Ravioli will be available in Northern California starting soon. Or top a burrito with one of Roloff Farms’ pumpkin salsas. They come in three flavors: Pumpkin Verde, Pumpkin Peach and Pumpkin Corn.
