As the air cools and the leaves begin to fall, it can only mean one thing: The holiday season is almost upon us. Of course, not everyone is ready to begin thinking about trees, candy canes, dreidels, menorahs, kinaras or snow, but the truth is, the season is coming — whether we want it to or not.

The good news is that with the season comes special seasonal items. And no matter which holiday you celebrate, one of the best things about the winter months is the food.

Traditional foods. Ethnic foods. Peppermint, cocoa and cookie-flavored foods.

And this year is no different. Retailers across the country are already revealing their limited-edition items.

So, whether you are looking for something savory, bitter, sour or sweet, don’t worry. Our 2018 holiday picks have you covered. And be sure to get them now, because all these items will only be available for a short time.
