Landover, Md. (August 28, 2015) – Back by customer demand and just in time for the beginning of fall, Giant Food of Landover, Md. is offering more than 50 seasonal pumpkin private label products in both the non-perishable and fresh departments. The products will be available in all stores for a limited time starting August 28.

Building on the successful launch last fall, Giant will introduce new and unique pumpkin products while also bringing back customer favorites. Items range from pumpkin-infused everyday products like pasta sauce, ice cream, waffles and hummus to specialty meal solutions like fully-cooked pumpkin organic chicken, pumpkin and sage ravioli and pumpkin bisque. Shoppers can also pick up pumpkin cheesecake cookies, pumpkin cinnamon rolls or pumpkin gelato for their next autumn celebration.

“Last year, Giant’s Own Brands Pumpkin items were a hit with customers and we are excited to usher in this fall season with an expanded offering of pumpkin items for them,” said Mark Adamcik, vice president of sales and merchandising at Giant Food. “The Own Brands Pumpkin line is another example of Giant’s commitment to providing both exciting gourmet options and affordability for our shoppers.”
