Hershey’s has revealed their upcoming holiday chocolates and the countdown begins!

From the new Cookies ‘N’ Crème Build-A-Snowman to the Hot Cocoa Kisses, Hershey’s has us all excited about the upcoming holiday season. Has anyone else already started a countdown to Christmas?

If you are one of those people who believe it’s too early for holiday celebrations because “it hasn’t even been Halloween,” kindly exit now. It’s 2020 and we need all the positive vibes we can get! And 2020 isn’t going to ruin what our taste buds look forward to the most each year (holiday sweets), not if Hershey’s has anything to say about it!

Our favorite chocolate and candy brand shared their upcoming sweets with me and it hasn’t been easy keeping things quiet. I’ve been dying to share all about what you can expect from Hershey’s. Want a quick tease? Let’s just say it’s going to be easier than ever filling up stockings.

Instead of giving you a formal presentation of what’s to come, I figured that, as a huge fan of sweets myself, a ranking is more fun. Not that there’s a single treat I didn’t enjoy, but here they are from least to most favorite.

The KIT KAT DUOS Mint + Dark Chocolate we have sampled before. I love the mix of KIT KAT’s iconic crunch with mint and dark chocolate. It’s going to be even more enjoyable during the colder months.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Mystery Shapes and Reese’s Peanut Butter Nutcrackers rank low on the list only because the taste is the same, but the new Reese’s Peanut Butter Nutcrackers look great and make fun gifts!

Speaking of fun gifts, does it get any better than the Reese’s White Elephant? This is a must at your next work (or friend) white elephant party!

The Build-A-Santa and Build-A-Snowman are perfect for kids (of all ages, your inner child, too!). You’ll notice that they don’t rank next to each other on the list. This is because I’m a sucker for anything Cookies ‘N’ Creme! It is hands down my favorite chocolate flavor.

Don’t let the word “miniatures” in Reese’s Miniatures Mega Cane full you, this is huge! The cane is nearly 2-feet-long and is packed with your mini Reese’s favorites.

You are going to want to keep an Ice Breakers Snowman Bottle of gum in your car. It smells like Christmas and it is oh so minty! Like imagine the mintiest gum and then add more mint to it.

Finally, at No. 1 there’s the Hershey’s Sugar Cookies Kisses! So sweet! They go perfect on top of some fresh baked cookies. Why not add a sugar cookie Kiss to your sugar cookies?
