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?

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.
