This has been a year of sweet treat releases, with some of the most popular American candy brands coming out with new creations every other month. But with the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to turn our attention to the best candies for the Christmas period.
Reindeer Corn is basically candy corn with a new name and different colours. This holiday treat comes in the typical Christmas colours of red, green, and white. We can definitely see why people enjoy these tiny almost tree-shaped treats.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
A classic for all peanut butter and chocolate lovers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are sold all over the world and in various sizes. For Christmas, people seem to like either buying the mini versions or the gigantic novelty versions as gifts.
A cute gift for anyone you know who’s a fan of Hershey’s, Hershey’s Kisses are a sweet treat that are almost too easy to eat a bag of. Available in a few different flavours, but milk chocolate are the classic, well-loved version.
Not something that’s heavily associated with Christmas, Starburst don’t usually have their own holiday celebration. The packaging rarely changes, but share bags are popular this time of year.
Similar to Starburst, Skittles don’t do much for the holidays. However, they do change their packaging, and we’ve even seen a “Holiday Mix” in the past.
Again, another candy that doesn’t have Christmas releases, but Snickers are definitely something you’ll consider part of the holidays. This is mainly due to their inclusion in Celebrations tubs; a staple for families at Christmas.
Something that you can buy or easily make yourself, peppermint bark is a treat that consists of white and milk chocolate with crushed peppermint on top. To cheat, some people just use crushed candy canes.
Speaking of candy canes, what household doesn’t have a dozen or two of these red and white beauties hanging from their tree?
M&M’s have had Christmas and Holiday versions before, and you can even buy a 500 gram bucket of the red-white-green versions.
Christmas Pez candy takes the form of Santa, a Snowman, or Rudolph. Very popular with younger children, and a fun alternative to the other kinds you can buy during the year.
