Seasonal treats are more than just a bowl of irresistible sugary delights. During the holidays, certain flavors dominate that conversation. The craving is more than a desire for a limited time offering. It brings back memories and satisfies in a different way. With the Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark, unwrapping that little square is more than just a single bite of enjoyment. It is an invitation to discover some sweet creativity.

While Ghirardelli has been around since 1852, the exact origins of peppermint bark are uncertain. Still, that combination of sweet white chocolate, refreshing mint, and contrasting textures is quite enjoyable. It might not be the treat that was designed to keep children quiet in church, but it has become a holiday staple in many homes.

Speaking to their offering, Bobby Oliver, Ghirardelli’s VP of Marketing said, “At Ghirardelli, we’re passionate about spreading holiday joy and know that the return of Peppermint Bark season is something our fans look forward to each year. We like to say it’s not the holiday season without Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark, and with more offerings than ever before, everyone can enjoy our classic festive treats for all sorts of different holiday occasions.”

Throughout the brand’s line, there are many options that feature the flavors. More importantly, the candy invites people to explore their sweet creativity. It can be as easy as covering a pretzel rod or creating a version of reindeer mix.

While those simple ideas make it easy for a candy bag to be used in a single sitting, it is more than just a version of s’mores that always delight as a dessert. For example, the Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark can flavor a decadent cheesecake. Sometimes favorite flavors can be enjoyed in many ways.

Whether it is an ice cream sandwich covered with crushed candy or used in combination with a filling of a cake, there are plenty of reasons to purchase a second bag to be used in the kitchen. And, unlike eating a candy cane, there is no controversy on the proper eating method. It is just time to enjoy the Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark before it fades away like the lyrics from that infamous holiday song.
