As soon as the leaves start to change, everyone immediately begins to obsess about fall – especially when it comes to flavored food. Seasonal and limited edition Holiday flavors are nothing new, but every year brings about new creations. Step aside fruitcake and pumpkin pie, there are new Holiday stars waiting to shine.
The most prominent specialized flavor may be pumpkin. Food and drink companies started to pounce on this new favorite, and produced their own concoctions (whether they actually taste good, well, that’s debatable). Starbucks recently had a drought of pumpkin spice syrup, which sent their beloved fans into a tizzy. The pumpkin spice latte may be one of the most talked about pumpkin items, but it doesn’t stop at just coffee. Polar Seltzer water is coming out with a holiday limited edition lineup; consisting of flavors such as Eggnog, Candy Cane, Pumpkin, Spice and Granny Smith Apple. Not one to be defeated in the unusual flavored-liquid contest, Pinnacle Vodka released it’s own line of holiday flavors, including pumpkin pie vodka
How would you feel about a pumpkin pie flavored chip? If sweet and savory food items are your thing, you may want to look into Pringles’ new line of chips. There are three flavors to choose from – pumpkin pie spice, white chocolate peppermint and cinnamon & sugar.
If you love your seasonal flavors, but only in a sweeter form, 2012 brings you plenty of options! Gingerbread isn’t just for “men” anymore. Gingerbread Oreos were just released, as well as a gingerbread-flavor from Pinkberry. For the fast-food lovers, McDonald’s AND Burger King released a holiday dessert menu coming this winter. The Golden Arches will be offering an Egg Nog Shake, a Holiday Mint McFlurry, Peppermint Mocha and a baked pumpkin pie and milkshake at select locations. Some locations will also sell pumpkin-spice mochas. The King will be offering a Gingerbread Cookie Sundae and a Gingerbread Cookie Shake. You can even snack on a Holiday flavored food! Angie’s Artisan Treats just recently launched their own line of Holidrizzle Kettle Corn. The kettle corn comes in two flavors; Dark Chocolatier Sea Salt and White Chocolatier Peppermint.
Whether you’re looking for an odd flavor combination or a usual holiday flavor to satisfy your craving, there are plenty of options for everyone to try!
