New Hershey’s holiday candy will make you want to be on the nice list.

Move over sugar plum fairies because the new Hershey’s holiday candy is the best sweet treat for the upcoming holiday season. With Santa watching, everyone will want to be on their best behavior to ensure that these Hershey’s candies will be part of every holiday celebration. Ready for a taste?

Even though everyone is enjoying Hershey’s Halloween candy, like the Witch’s Brew Kit Kat and Vampire Hershey’s Kisses, it is time to start planning for the holidays. Before anyone realizes it, pumpkin spice will be replaced with peppermint mocha.

While many of the classic Hershey’s holiday candies will return to store shelves, the new Hershey’s holiday candy is making everyone feel merry and bright. With options that will appeal to both young and old, these Hershey’s holiday candies are the perfect sweet treat for everyone on your holiday lists.

For the 2020 holiday season, Hershey’s is adding seven new holiday offerings. Whether these holiday candies are used for the always full candy bowl, holiday gifts or even holiday baking, Hershey’s has a sweet treat that fits each and every occasion.

While there were many rumors about one of the new Hershey’s holiday candies, it is now officially confirmed. The Hershey’s Sugar Cookie Kisses will be hitting store shelves.

The newest Hershey’s Kiss flavor does taste just like a sugar cookie. From the smooth chocolate to the crunchy sugary cookies pieces, this Hershey’s Kiss flavor will quickly become everyone’s favorite.

While the Hershey’s Sugar Cookie Kisses are amazing eaten by themselves, they are even better when they are used in baking. That classic Thumbprint cookie gets a makeover thanks to these Hershey’s Kisses. The bag, itself, even has the cookie recipe. Maybe this cookie will be on Santa’s plate.

If you prefer to play with your candy versus bake with your candy, Hershey’s has created a “build it” line. The Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Build-A-Santa encourages everyone to play with their food. The breakable pieces transform into a chocolate Santa.

For the creative types, a fun option is to use this candy as a version of an mini-Advent calendar. Many parents know that the countdown to Christmas can seem to drag on. Use the “built” Santa to countdown the days. When the last chocolate piece is gone, Santa will arrive.

If your kids sing about building a snowman non-stop, the Hershey’s Cookies N’ Crème Build-A-Snowman is for them. Maybe this candy will allow the parents to finally let go of that song which is perpetually stuck in their head.

Of course, kids aren’t the only people who get holiday candies. The Reese’s White Elephant might be the most talked about new Hershey’s holiday candy.

While many holiday parties have that white elephant gift exchange, no one really knows what to buy that fits the parameters. If you have ever gone home with a gift that you are embarrassed to bring in the house, Hershey’s has created the gift that everyone will want.

Shaped like an elephant, the iconic Reese’s peanut butter is encased in sweet white chocolate. It is literally an edible white elephant. You might want to buy two candies in case someone steals your gift during the last round of the white elephant exchange.

The Reese’s White Elephant isn’t the only new Reese’s candy. The Reese’s Peanut Butter Nutcrackers are the newest Reese’s shape to join the category. These shaped candies are quite detailed.

There are three Nutcracker designs. These Reese’s candies are perfect for the candy bowl. While decorated differently, they feel like eating a Reese’s miniature. With all the detail, it can be hard to bite into them. Then you remember it is Reese’s candy and you’re not sorry about biting off the head of the Nutcracker.

Also, if Santa is looking for some stocking gift inspiration, the new Reese’s Miniatures Mega Cane will bring lots of smiles on Christmas morning. With two-feet of Reese’s candy, this candy cane is so big it goes under the tree, not on it.

For Kit Kat fans, they are not left out of the new Hershey’s holiday candy. The popular KIT KAT Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate is being offered in a snack size. Given that peppermint mocha is such a popular holiday flavor, this Hershey’s candy satisfies that craving.

While this snack size is great to enjoy anytime, it is also a great option for holiday baking. Why not top that simple brownie with some of the KIT KAT Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate. Or, another option could be to use the KIT KAT as a crumble for a holiday cake. The choices are many.

Lastly, even though holiday parties might not look the same, mask breath can be a concern. The Ice Breakers Snowman Bottle Pack Gum is a must have all holiday season. The classic candy-cane flavored gum is back and is dressed up for the season.

The fun snowman packaging makes the Ice Breakers a must have for the whole holiday season. From keeping a package in the car to having some in your purse, it is a must have.

While the holiday music might not have started playing, the holiday candy is coming. Just remember to stay on Santa’s nice list. He might make sure that all these tasty treats are part of your holiday celebration.
