It’s Day 7 and Christmas is only 3 days away! Like woah, did time fly or something? Oh wait, I think it teleported 😂.
Seriously, it’s like already Dec 21st and Oh my Carols! 😀
As you might have seen, today’s post is going to be about My Favorite Christmas Candies!
Warning- Reading more could give you a virtual sugar rush/ extreme mouth-watering.
#1 Candy Canes
I ain’t gonna say too much here because CANDY CANE. There’s no explanation needed about why this is the first entry on the list .I will tell you that, according to the book “Introduction to Food Science,” by Rick Parker, the candy cane was created in 1670 in Cologne, Germany, when a choirmaster gave the treats to his young singers so they’d keep quiet.
I don’t know if I want to be quiet but I’m sure I want some Candy Canes!
#2 Hammond’s Ribbon Candy
Now, I dunno if you’ve had it or not but these ribbon candies are DELISH. Hammond’s, from its Denver, Colorado headquarters, has been making candy since 1920. This ribbon candy is an assortment of flavors, and Hammond’s makes ribbon candies in cinnamon, cherry and peppermint strips. Just get me the Cherry one already.
#3 Peppermint Nougats
Trust me They. Are. Great. They’ve got the pepperminty taste that is so associated with the holiday, but my favorite part is that they’re, a) buttery and, b) chewy. (Right, that is my two favorite parts.)one reviewer says: “The best, most addictive substance known to humankind. Even better than chocolate. (I can’t believe I said that, but it’s true.)” GET UP AND GET THEM ALREADY!
You cannot ignore the fudge factor when it comes to Christmas candies. Infact, you cannot ignore it period. You can get an assortment comprised of eight different flavors: chocolate, chocolate walnut, peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter, maple walnut, vanilla, chocolate peanut butter layered and penuche walnut.
#5 Milk Chocolate Balls
You say “Christmas,” I say “chocolate.” And when you talk about Christmas chocolate, there is nothing that says it with more clarity than solid milk chocolate balls. You know the kind: a little bit tough to unwrap that foil but, when you get it unwrapped, it’s pretty much perfect. I love getting these in the parades. Gosh it’s brilliant and total heaven!
#5 Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles
Okay, if you know me, you would know I’m a sucker for milk chocolate. Like I FREAKING love it! And I’m just going to say this, because over the course of my eating life, I’ve heard more than once a little confusion between truffles…and chocolate truffles. These (obvs) are chocolate truffles, as opposed to the mushroom-like thing that grows underground and is used (usually) in savory dishes. Okay. Now that that’s out of the way. These chocolate truffles are a great sort of combination between regular chocolate and fudge. The slightly harder outside with the very soft chocolate filling are like, like really Delicious. I don’t know how you’ve been living if you haven’t tasted this.
Wait- Are you a vampire who doesn’t eat?
