Let's give ourselves a pat on the back because we did it. We made it through pumpkin spice season. And even though we survived this year's all-too-real PS product overload, the reality is that we're not entirely immune to another strike of seasonal-snack onslaught. Now more than ever, it's important to stay vigilant — because the onslaught of 2017 limited edition holiday products is imminent.
But before store shelves start looking like your neighbor's front lawn, we've got your survival plan mapped out with a grade A list for separating the nice from the naughty when it comes to festive goods. From bottles of peppermint mocha cold brew, to eggnog gelato, hot cocoa cereal, and more, these 20 limited edition products are
so above par that we'd blow our gift budgets to stock up on them all.
