Team Peppermint

We are in November which is that after Halloween/pre-Christmas season transitional. Thanksgiving is one of my absolute favorite holidays, but we all know that November is traditionally the time when you can indulge in both your pumpkin and your peppermint delights. I asked you all which team you were on and here's the results.

Team Pumpkin - 7
Team Peppermint - 3
Team Salted Caramel (write in) - 2

I am personally Team Peppermint.

Here's what I like that's pumpkin, since you're reading this and you care: pumpkin cheesecake F'Real, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cream cheese muffin, and pumpkin Hershey Kisses.

That's it. I also like live pumpkins especially tiger pumpkins. They are also fun to make jack-o-lanterns with and are good for general autumn decor.

Now, let's talk about peppermint. We'll start with edibles and move on.

Peppermint Mocha Frappachinos. I should be able to rest my case there. I know you will expect more from me though so we'll continue. Peppermint hot chocolate, peppermint white mocha espressso, peppermint Hershey Kisses, any chocolate with peppermint candy, peppermint ice cream, candy canes, peppermint brownies pops (pictured above), peppermint cheesecake, peppermint bark, peppermint fudge, peppermint popcorn bark, shall I continue? The marriage of chocolate and peppermint is a match made in the heavens.

Moving on to decor: you can melt peppermints together in the oven to make a circular tray to put your cheesecake on! Also, candy canes on a Christmas tree or in a mug on your desk are a simple and classic decoration! The classic red and white peppermint colors are a staple in any Christmas/holiday decorations. Most winter scenes feature a little polar bear eating a candy cane or a feisty penguin fencing with one. There's even mailboxes with the little peppermint circles!

Basically, I'm peppermint obsessed. Which team are you on?

Until Next Time,
