It's the holiday season...

The holiday season starts earlier and earlier each year. Carols are blaring from the speakers in lots of stores. My beloved Target replaced Halloween stuff with tinsel, dreidels and the like before the kids could even utter "trick-or..."

But the good thing about this time of year are the seasonal treats. I'm talking holiday-edition deliciousness. Like:

Christmas Crunch
Peppermint nougats (with the trees in the center)
Dr. Praeger's potato pancakes
Trauth egg nog
Cranberry ginger ale

What are your favorites?

Believe it or not I look out for fruitcakes! Does anybody make homemade ones at all anymore? I love visiting the Bristish Isles, as fruitcake-like things are in the bakeries all year. Last year I smuggled a whole duffle back. The Department of Agriculture beagle didn't seem to notice....

My grandmother makes fruitcakes. That's always been the one thing that she can allow to cool within reach or her grandchildren. I, for one, just can't bear the taste. I think it's the molasses...

Oh, I forgot one new holiday treat: Hershey's Candy Cake Kisses. Think peppermint bark...
