Even though Texas hasn't gotten the memo that it's December (yesterday I was sweating in shorts and a tank top while putting up my Christmas tree) it officially is and that means that all manner of peppermint items have hit the stores. As a peppermint fan? This makes me happy, happy, happy.*
I've already purchased, consumed and driven others to purchase many boxes of these:
Junior Mints Peppermint Crunch which are 5 for $5 at Target. To find them, you need to head to the Christmas aisles and look at the back where the stocking stuffers are, they aren't with the regular candy, FYI.
My next favorite candy are peppermint tootsie pops but this year I found these:
Candy Cane Pop Drops for the same 5 for $5 sale at Target and snatched up a box to try.
Even though I love Angie's Kettle Corn and buy the huge bags at Costco whenever they have them, the Holidrizzle White Chocolatier Peppermint Kettle Corn made me skeptical but...
Finally, my most favorite ice cream, that I will totally suffer sinus issues for:
Of course there's always peppermint bark and everyone that has a TJ's talks about their most beloved Candy Cane Joe Joe's (which I will finally get my hand's on this year, oh yes, I will) but the above are some of my favorites. Tell me about yours, I'm always on the hunt for a new "must have"!
*Duck Dynasty. Yes.
