Winter Treats

      It is peppermint season! Which in my humble opinion is so much better than pumpkin season. 

     It's also cookie season. So... its the best time of the year.

     This holiday season I have been trying a lot of holiday flavored treats so I thought I would share my thoughts!

Nope. I had high hopes for these little cupcakes. They are sprinkles, green frosting, chocolate, and mint - how could it go bad?  The mint flavor was extreme odd and artificial tasting, almost spearmint opposed to peppermint. I highly recommend you pass on these in the supermarket.

Sadly, I wasn't a fan of these either - Hostess holiday limited edition flavors were a complete miss for me this year. The mint is more peppermint than the previous product but it just didn't mix well with the chocolate cake part of the hoho. I had two, the first one threw me because I had high expectation (I love Hostess original hohos!) so I decided to try a second one a week later and I will not be eating any more. I say pass on these in the supermarket as well.

Drop everything and go get these, they are delicious! These cookies are a hit. They are sweet enough where I didn't want to eat a ton, but not too sweet to the point where I could hardly tolerate one without becoming nauseous. 

When I saw this ice cream I knew I had to try it. I mean come on - sugar cookie flavored ice cream! I was very intrigued. I like the ice cream flavor, the snickerdoodle cookie dough pieces, and the cinnamon sugar revel! However, I am not a fan of the buttercream swirls in it. The texture of the frosting is off, but thankfully there isn't a lot of it in the ice cream. My mom isn't a fan of snickerdoodle and she enjoyed the ice cream. As a ice cream in the winter kind of gal, I give it a thumbs up.

Another hit!!
If you like true peppermint candy cane flavor you will love this ice cream. It even has little candy cane pieces in it. I like how the peppermint makes your mouth even colder than a normal ice cream would. 

All of these products can be found at Walmart. 

What holiday treats have you tried this year?
