As you might have guessed, I’m currently writing from the great Southern States of America. And what’s a visit home without a hop over to Walmart… the Great American Superstore. As I was making my way down the aisles and whining to my family about how much cheaper everything is in the good ole USA, I noticed a lot of my favourite brands as a kid had started releasing special editions for the holidays. First up I spotted Oreos. Not only had they released special packaging for the holidays on their normal Doublestuffs, they had also released a limited edition flavour for the 2012 holiday season. This year Oreo is trialing a special edition of Gingerbread cookies. There seemed to be a lot of them on the shelves so I can’t say if this had just been restocked or just wasn’t being bought. But it sure had my interest peaked.
Then I noticed that Jet-Puffed marshmallows had also jumped on the seasonal game with flavoured marshmallows. My friends tell me flavoured marshmallows have been out for a while but these Peppermint and Pumpkin Spice Mallows are new for Christmas.
Last, but certainly not least, I spotted the Christmas Pringles, which come in the oddest of flavours ranging from Cinnamon and Sugar to Pumpkin Pie Spice. It’s a new world out there as far as food goes and this holiday we are definitely all spoiled for choice in the United States…
Now I’m just off to see how these flavoured marshmallows taste in my hot chocolate!
