I love this time of year! I know that you do too. I love it for the cool weather, the gathering of families, the good cheer. I love it for the kids and their anticipation of the coming of Christmas. One of the things I love most about the holidays is all of the food and drinks that become available during the Christmas season. And since I’m a Chocoholic I’m going to focus on some of my favorites.
Every year right at Thanksgiving Hershey comes out with it’s Dark Chocolate Mint Truffle. It has Dark Hershey chocolate on the outside and a creamy, green mint on the inside. It’s really great for after dinner, watching T.V at night with some hot coffee or just on their own with a glass of milk.
They also offer Candy Cane Striped Mint kisses that venture away from the normal chocolate flavors that the company offers. They are perfect for Christmas parties and gatherings.
Not to be out done, M&M’s has their holiday favorite Christmas Mint M&M’s that mixes the wonderful M&M chocolate with cool mint. I love these M&M’s especially. I’ll spend an evening with a bag or bowl full and a glass of cold milk and slowly relish each one.
A new flavor that I haven’t seen offered before is Cinnamon and Milk Chocolate M&M’s. They have M&M’s famous milk chocolate flavor with a hint of cinnamon in every bite.
These holiday flavors, like most of the M&M and Hershey flavors are well worth trying. The holiday flavors perhaps even more since they are around for only a short time.
If you have tried any of these candies let me know what you thought of them. I’m always interested in other peoples opinions and I would love to hear yours. Merry Christmas!
