December 12-14: Peppermint
If you want to grab a candy cane to fulfill this final mission, go ahead. But, candy canes suck (yes, terrible pun intended), attract lint while you're eating them, and leave sticky candy cane juice all over your face and hands. Instead, indulge in Rich Table’s mint chocolate sable with mint chocolate cream & iced milk. It’s like a Peppermint Pattie, only way, way better. Other viable options: DeLise has peppermint fudge brownies and Ice Cream Bar does peppermint bark ice cream.
