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.
