Every so often, there’s a candy bar that arrives in stores that checks off all the flavors and textures you’re craving at the moment. 

For us, it very well may be the new Snickers Peanut Brownie Ice Cream Bar.

The frozen new confection features brownie-flavored ice cream combined with chewy brownie bits, topped with a layer of caramel and peanuts, and covered with a final coat of milk chocolate. 

It’s making me blush thinking of all those textures swirling around in my mouth after each bite. 

Snickers’ Peanut Brownie Ice Cream arrives at local freezer aisles and will make a nationwide release in stores by March 2021.

With the holidays quickly approaching this upcoming week, we’re expecting many gingerbread homes opening up for tiny little gingerbread folk to move into on Christmas morning. 

IKEA Canada, however, is taking the furnishing of those homes quite seriously. So much, in fact, that they’ve released step by step instructions on how to properly construct gingerbread furniture.

You can create bookshelves, chairs, beds, rugs, and even a dining room set, entirely out of gingerbread. 

All you need to do is print out the instructions, whip up some gingerbread cookie dough, and start molding and gluing your pieces together. 

Those eager to try their hand at building IKEA gingerbread furniture can download the printable instructions here. As someone who has a hard enough time with regular IKEA furniture, however, I’ll sit this one out and watch my nieces and nephews enjoy the holiday activity.

We see new candy canes hit the candy aisle every year, boasting new flavors and vibrant colors to spark the upcoming holiday festivities.
This year, Kellogg’s has released the first-ever Froot Loops Cereal Candy Canes.

The naturally-flavored candy canes are combined with Toucan Sam’s bright bevy of colors to form a unique take on the iconic holiday confection.

Not gonna lie. I’ve always been a bigger fan of the fruit-flavored versions of candy canes over the original peppermint flavor. Pretty excited to try these.

You can find the new Froot Loops Cereal Candy Canes in packs of 12 at participating grocery snack aisles nationwide now.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a huge fan of candy corn. The polarizing treat tends to pop up mostly around the fall festivities, and this holiday season, Brach’s is adding a unique twist on their iconic candy corn.

The candy company has introduced an all-new bag of Turkey Dinner Candy Corn.

Turkey-flavored candy corn, you might think? Not quite.

The bag will consist of an assortment of sweet and savory flavors that make up the quintessential Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner. This includes roasted turkey, green beans, stuffing, ginger-glazed carrots, cranberry sauce, and sweet potato pie.

You can find the new Turkey Dinner 12-oz bag of candy corn exclusively at participating Walgreens locations now. Sure, I’m a little concerned about how savory candy corn tastes, but that’s not going to stop me from grabbing a bag.

Somewhere out there in the vastness of modern civilization, there is someone who has a house stocked with every Oreo flavor that’s ever existed. Well, that individual will have to add two more to that dream house. 

Next year, Oreo has announced they’ll be releasing a new Java Chip-flavored cookie and a Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie

The Java Chip will boast a coffee-flavored creme that features tiny little chocolate chips, and the Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie sounds pretty similar to a Nutella-flavored confection.

Arriving in stores in January 2021, the two new flavors will become a permanent addition to the Oreo lineup. You can bet we’ll be buying a bag or two of these as soon as they drop.
