13 Brand-New Holiday Groceries to Stock Up on This December
Santa came early with some sweet treats!
As much as we love candy canes, eggnog and snickerdoodles, eating the same ol' snacks year after year can be blah. This holiday season, give yourself (and holiday party guests) the gift of brand-new, limited-edition treats. From peppermint bark gelato to candy-flavored popcorn, these are the holiday-themed foods we're adding to our carts ASAP.
Peppermint? Check. Frozen hot chocolate? Check. Ice cream? Check. Breyers newest offering packs all your favorite holiday goodies into one carton. This frozen treat includes dark chocolate ice cream, peppermint ice cream and chocolate chips.
We’ve seen Spite Cherry, Sprite Tropical Mix and even Sprite Lymonade over the years, and the newest Sprite creation is here just in time to kick off the holiday season. Sprite Winter Spice Cranberry infuses the lemon-lime flavor we know and love with a warm spice blend and a tart cranberry kick.
Decorating your Christmas cookies just got a whole lot easier. These adorable red and white chocolate curls from Nestlé Toll House can add a festive dash to your holiday baked goods, or you can sprinkle them as a garnish on top of a warm mug of hot chocolate.
The holidays are getting a bit *mysterious* this year. Reese’s has released its newest seasonal peanut butter cup shapes, and to figure out what each shape is, you’ll have to do a bit of detective work. Is it a stocking? Is it a snowman? We don’t know… but what we do know is that each shape is equally delicious.
Santa-shaped cookies are so last year. Amp up your Christmas cookie game by adding Pepperidge Farm’s toy soldier-shaped shortbreads to the mix. These festive cookies are inspired by the Rockettes’ iconic “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” dance and are coated in a blend of cinnamon and brown sugar.
Ever wanted to slurp up your favorite cupcake? This holiday season, you totally can. Baileys has released a limited-edition twist on their famous Irish Cream: red velvet cupcake. This sweet liqueur combines notes of chocolate cake, cream cheese frosting and cocoa powder.
If you’re a fan of RXBAR, you’ve probably tried each and every flavor and debated which is the absolute best (Chocolate Sea Salt, duh). Now, your fave protein bar comes in a must-have festive flavor: gingerbread. The Gingerbread RXBAR includes allspice, ginger and sea salt along with that good-good combo of egg whites, dates and nuts.
Between last minute shopping, gift wrapping and dealing with relatives, it’s safe to say you’ll need a pick-me-up this holiday season. Enter: High Brew’s Peppermint Mocha coffee. This cold brew blends the caffeine kick you’ll need with peppermint and dark chocolate tastes.
’Tis the season for gingerbread, well, everything, and Captain Morgan’s limited-edition flavor is here to spice up your holiday party. The rum is distilled with the taste of fresh gingerbread, and we have a feeling it would pair perfectly with apple cider, hot cocoa or eggnog.
