Ah, it’s that time of year again – and as soon as it started, the sooner it’ll end! There are many things to do before the Winter Holiday comes to an end. This is one of the busiest times of the year; from buying presents to go underneath that tree, to cooking up a fabulous Christmas Dinner that even Santa would want to join – enjoying the little things about the holidays can be difficult. And let’s not forget what one of the most underrated gifts this season has to offer us: the limited edition holiday snacks!
But have no fear – the holidays aren’t gone for good just yet! For you food-lovers out there who waited so long for this time of year, now’s your time to stock up on the goods! Here’s a list of the best winter season snacks 2018 had to offer us. Make sure to get them before they are all gone!
Planter’s Holiday Nut Crunch
Planters are getting into the game this holiday season with their Holiday Collection Nuts – one of which is the favorite Holiday Nut Crunch. With the perfect mix of chocolate covered peanuts, chocolate candies pieces, cranberries, almonds, cashews, and raisins, it’s a great snack to place out for family and guests to enjoy.

Target is always sharing the “Christmas Spirit” with their snacks and candies during the holidays. However, this one takes the cake! The “Sugar Cookie Milk” is all the rave this year, along with its cousins “Chocolate Mint” and “Maple Pecan.” Sweet, silky milk that tastes exactly like a Christmas cookie!
