The Christmas holiday season is upon us bringing sparkling lights, Christmas trees, party foods and busy calendars which include school, church and community events.
Don’t let the season slip away without enjoying the special flavors of the season. Starbucks brings us Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte and Gingerbread Latte.
Chick-fil-A offers one of the best treats of the season, perfect for all ages, with their Peppermint Chocolate Chip milkshake topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
McDonald’s weighs in with the McCafe Eggnog shake and the Holiday Mint McFlurry to keep the adults and kids happy.
Sweet Frog stores choose their own favorite holiday flavors at each location. At one of the stores in Lynchburg, Va., the choices this week are Eggnog, White Chocolate Mousse and Red Velvet. Next week, Peppermint will be added to the mix.
Baskin-Robbins offers Santa, snowman and elf ice cream cakes as well as Eggnog ice cream. Your local ice cream parlor probably has something tasty too.
You will also find plenty of holiday flavors at retail stores including Target, where there’s an entire aisle of holiday candy, cookies and treats. Included among the specialties are candy cane and winter Oreos, peppermint pretzels and cookies, and peppermint bark Chex Mix.
Peppermint, gingerbread and eggnog are the favorite flavors of the season but they aren’t the only ones. At Amazon.com, you will find four pages of holiday flavored items.
Some are items you can find in your neighborhood grocery or retail store like candy cane Oreos, hot spiced apple cider and peppermint Chap Stick. Others are a little more unique.
Who do you know on your holiday list who would love a peppermint flavored candy cane edible shot glass? You can buy a pack of two or a whole case at Amazon’s website.
You will also find peppermint flavored rolling paper. This may soon be a favorite of residents of the state of Colorado. There are also several flavored coffee and tea blends available.
The traditional candy cane takes a little bit of a twist with flavors of Sweetarts and Life Savers but you can find those in many retail stores. You might not find bacon flavored and pickle flavored candy canes as easily.
From pumpkin pie and peppermint to gingerbread and spiced apple, the flavors of the season await. Venture outside the box this holiday season and try something new. But don’t wait too long. The flavors of the season don’t last forever.
