candle favorite holiday flavors

I was at Publix this past weekend and bought Thomas brand bagels in Pumpkin Spice flavor! This special fall flavor is really wonderful, and Publix has them on sale this week buy one get one free, yay! We are really enjoying these at my house right now. The Thomas bagel guy at the store said that they would be releasing their cranberry flavored bagels into stores in two weeks, so cranberry lovers, watch for them!

There are so many specialty items that are only available during the holidays - you can tell by my nickname that I'm especially partial to Starbucks' Gingerbread Latte, although I also really enjoy their White Peppermint Mocha. Another guilty pleasure for me are the Oreos dipped in white chocolate, just heavenly!

So what are some of the holiday flavored items that you look forward to each year?

First off anything pumpkin from Starbucks to waffle from eggo to creamer and all points between.

During the summer when I need a pumpkin spice latte fix. Just go to Starbucks order white mocca add chi latte to it and bam.

I haven't seen the Cranberry flavored Jelly Belly jelly beans in awhile, I love those. Also, I miss the peppermint milk chocolate Hershey Kisses, I know they have the peppermint filled ones now but they are not the same, or as creamy as the original Kisses.
I love Peppermint Bark, the Pepperidge Farms holiday cookies, there are others also, I just can't remember them at the moment.

A friend of mine who worked at Starbucks said a lot of the stores will have pumpkin left over for a long time after the fall flavors. Corporate won't allow them to advertise it, but you can always ask if they have the flavoring left.

Also, you can order an americano misto (cafe au lait made with espresso) with flavoring added for a huge savings.

Anything pumpkin flavored; creamer, coffee, doughnuts, pie... I love peppermint too, and peppermint creamer is SO good in hot chocolate and coffee. I also love the cherry cordial Hershey Kisses.

I haven't seen or heard of the pumpkin spice bagels, but I will be on the hunt for them tomorrow... as well as pumpkin yogurt, Eggo's, and anything else I can get my hands on.

I love the pumpkin spice doughnuts Dunkin Donuts sells in the fall. During the Christmas season last year, they sold a doughnut that had chocolate icing on it, topped with crushed candy cane. That was good too. I hope they sell it again this year. I'm not one to buy flavored creamer for coffee very often, but we like to buy something different to enjoy during the holidays. Egg nog makes a good tasting coffee creamer too.

Yay!! I had these last year and became addicted and have been hoping they'd have them again this year. I'll have to look next time I'm at the store. So excited!!

Pumpkin pie is probably my favorite dessert ever so anything that tastes like it is a big hit with me. Also peppermint. Oh and anything that has cinnamon in it. The smell of cinnamon is the greatest scent in the entire world!! Especially Starbucks Cinnamon Dulce Lattes

If you like chocolate covered cherries aka cherry cordials you can drop a couple into a cup of steaming hot coffee and the chocolate coating will melt and that combined with the sweet liquid cream that's in them will make sort of a mocha, cherry candy flavored creamer and once you drink the coffee you can eat the cherries that have soaked up the flavor of the coffee...SO good!! The coffee infused cherries are my favorite part

I love anything cinnamon, my fave drink is hot chocolate with a cinnamon stick stuck in it. I usually have one while doing my Christmas cards. It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside just thinking about it!

I love anything with cinnamon too.

But around this time of year, I often make peppermint marshmallows to put into hot chocolate. If you've never done it it's really easy to make and it makes your hot chocolate SOOOO much better.
