Hershey’s Celebrates ‘Kissmas’ With Ugly Sweaters And Santa Hats


While we haven’t quite arrived at Thanksgiving yet, many companies are getting ready for Christmas. In the spirit of the festive holiday, Hershey’s released a slew of candies wrapped in Christmas-themed foil.


Variations include Santa hats, Christmas sweaters, Christmas trees, and Christmas gifts. Though the chocolate company is sticking with the term Kissmaskissmass-trees

The Santa hats, Kissmas sweaters, and Kissmas trees are available in an 11 oz bag, and the Kissmas gift chocolates are available in 9 oz bags. Prices vary depending on the design.


These are definitely something cool to fill stockings with this Christmas. The chocolates could easily be a go-to option in case you’re looking to save some money on gifts this season.

This Guy Walks Around Town Giving $100 Envelopes to Fast Food Workers, Still on the Loose


A Massachusetts man has tested positive for the Christmas Spirit this holiday season.

Local fast food employees of Barnstable, a town in Massachusetts, received a $100 bill over the last few days from a mysterious man. The man would hand them white envelopes with the words “Merry Christmas” in large red writing. Inside, there was no letter or card, simply just the $100 piece of paper.

Recipients of the money describe the cash as crisp, as if just withdrawn from the bank.

While most good Samaritans pay it forward to a single employee, this guy pretty much covers the entire fast food establishment. Reports say he will enter the store asking to speak with the manager, asks how many workers are employed at the store, and hand over as many $100 envelopes as there are workers.

No word yet on the identity of this mysterious humanitarian. Until then, we’re coining the name C-Note Santa.

Bake Up Sriracha-Twisted Candy Cane Cookies


If you’ve already stocked up on a lifetime supply of Sriracha due to the impending Srirachapocalypse, then get ready to make these Sriracha candy cane cookies for Santa. It’s the least you could do, especially if he’s hustling down the chimney to bring you presents.

The recipe, over at Nerdalicious, replaces sweet peppermint with spicy sauce in the classic twisted cookie. Two separate cookie doughs, one a plain white sugar cookie and the other a red spiced dough, are twisted together into canes and baked.

The result? The cookies are sweet and spicy, with the classic pungent smell from our favorite hot sauce. However, may we suggest sprinkling in crushed Sriracha candy canes for texture and some Sriracha frosting for an extra kick?  We’re sure Santa would love them too.

Dismembered Gingerbread Men, Peppermint White Russians and 3 Other Recipes Santa Might Actually Want to Eat This Christmas Eve

Here’s the thing: free food is always great. But after several millennia of eating the same thing year after year after year, wouldn’t you get sick of plain old milk and cookies too?


Santa Clause Burger

Let’s be real, Santa Clause is a hefty individual. Let’s be even more real, yes, he might like cookies, but you know he hasn’t built his spherical frame up over the years without his fair share of hamburgers. That’s where the always creative Char.L.Ton has stepped up and constructed a burger in his fashion. Tomato red cheeks, a cheesy beard, a ketchup and lettuce hat, onion eyes and nose. I wish I put out a plate of these burgers last night, I might have gotten that 60″ HDTV I put on my list. Sorry you didn’t like the celery Santa, just lookin’ out for ya!
