With pumpkinpalooza in full swing (have you seen the shelves at Trader Joe's? HOLY GREAT PUMPKIN!), now's the time for putting maximum amounts of pumpkin in our pieholes.

Vegans, of course, have a more limited menu of options in this (and every) department. Pumpkin spice lattes are out -- so is pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin Pop Tarts. Bummer.

Luckily, there are some delicious pumpkin treats that are free of animal products -- you've just gotta know where to look. Check out five after the jump.

Pumpkin Spice Oreos

This limited-edition fall flavor is on shelves for only a limited time, so snap 'em up while you have the chance. Called "surprisingly tasty" by the folks at the Today Show, Kathie Lee and Hoda also suggested dipping them in wine, because they're FANCY. Regardless, it's hard to imagine going wrong with a pumpkin/Oreo mashup.

So Delicious Pumpkin Spice Frozen Treats

These creamy desserts are everything you've missed about pumpkin ice cream -- in a healthier, cruelty-free incarnation. And at only 100 calories a pop, you can almost justify binging on an entire box. Pumpkin season comes around onlyonce a year, after all.  

So Delicious Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk

Dump it in your coffee for an instant PSL, or drink it straight for your pumpkin fix. Either way, this seasonal splurge is (as its name suggests) so delicious.

Trader Joe's Pecan Pumpkin Oatmeal

Nothing says fall like warm, satisfying oatmeal. Add pumpkin (and pecans!) to the mix and it's the perfect October breakfast. You could even turn the AC way up and pretend we live in a place with actual seasons.

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Granola

If oatmeal isn't your bag, there's always granola. If you wanna go buck wild, pair it with the So Delicious Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk and you've got instant sugar-spiked, pumpkin overload.

Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale

According to Barnivore, Blue Moon has sworn its abstention from animal products. Good thing too, because pumpkin beer beats apple cider any day.
