Published November 29, 2006


Imagine s'mores

Honey Maid brings fun to holiday snacking with new Gingerbread Graham Crackers. These limited-edition crackers combine a hint of gingerbread spice with a touch of honey. Plus, you can follow the directions on the box and use the crackers as the foundation for a gingerbread house. Suggested retail price is $3.49.

Cookies in a cup

Celestial Seasonings has added a new flavor - Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride - to its line of holiday teas. Might a cup keep you from eating all those actual sugar cookies? Other holiday flavors include Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea, Nutcracker Sweet Black Tea and Sugar Plum Spice and Gingerbread Spice Herb Teas. Suggested retail price is $2.99.

Put it on the Ritz

Ritz has introduced Entertaining Selections Crackers, which will go great with all kinds of cheeses, dips and spreads. Varieties include buttercrisp and hearty wheat. The suggested retail price for the limited-edition crackers is $2.89.
