Who Doesn't Love Seasonal Treats!!

I LOVE Christmas time and all the flavors associated with the holidays! Peppermint, cinnamon, and gingerbread are all the flavors I look forward to this time of year, and it's so fun to see all these treats in the grocery store. Obviously food companies must be in the holiday spirit!

I freakin' love Oreos. I saw these in Walmart the other day and I wish I got them. How awesome would these be in Oreo balls? Now I might have to go get these...
I love Luna bars and eat them all the time! I had one of these festive Chocolate Peppermint Stick bars as my snack this afternoon! They are filling and also low-cal. Luna for the win!
If y'all drink coffee, you HAVE to try these! I'm not a huge coffee person, so I can also vouch for the magnificence of these added to hot chocolate. They taste amazing. I love the eggnog and peppermint mocha in hot chocolate, and the eggnog is good in coffee as well.
I mentioned these the other day but I still think it's great that an energy gel is available in holiday flavors! A little bit of Christmas on your run! Have one while pounding out some miles and jamming out to Christmas carols! I know I'm not the only one who does this...
Seasonal Clif bars! I LOVE Clif bars! I've had the gingerbread flavor and liked it. I'm dying to try the cranberry one!
Candy cane Hershey kisses!! These taste great melted in hot chocolate! And when you eat them straight out of the bag...and on top of cookies. I actually used these in an awesome brownie recipe. Now that I think of it, I'll have to post the recipe for y'all! Super easy holiday treat.
Holiday silk!! I know normal eggnog is a staple on the grocery refrigerated shelf in December, but how cool is it that Silk makes it too? I bet any of these flavors would taste awesome in hot chocolate, your morning smoothie, or with granola.
Speaking of eggnog, EGGNOG ICE CREAM! I have to find this.

Y'all know how I feel about m&ms. I LOVE them. And red and green m&ms are even better.
They are so beautiful.
They even have pretzel holiday m&ms!
Someone restrain me.
And everyone's favorite, Starbucks holiday drinks! I used to work for Starbucks in college and I always looked forward to making drinks in the red cups. I have to try one of the skinny peppermint mochas they have new this year! Who has tried one? How is it? And the dark cherry? Is that yummy?

Aren't the holidays so tasty?!

I'm watching the Christmas in Rockefeller Plaza special on TV tonight while I edit thesis chapters. I'm going to NYC in a few weeks so I'm looking forward to getting a preview of the tree!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I haven't tried the peppermint mocha. But I love their holiday caramel brulee flavor. Starbucks is so good. And I'm loving all the holiday decorations up everywhere.

  2. We have the oreos! I haven't tried them yet, but my sister said they are super yummy!
    I have been looking for the clif bars but can't find them anywhere!

  3. How can you not love all the seasonal treats that come out this time of year! xo

  4. My favorite are those Hershey Kisses. I need not to buy them anymore b/c I can eat the whole bag.
    BTW - the Oreo balls are good made with those. I've had them.
