You know how you can really tell what time of year it is? When you start seeing this at Trader Joe's:
I LOVE these. They are soo good, and they're vegan! (The chocolate-covered ones aren't, but I try to limit myself to one box a year since they're so crazy good.)
I noticed that this year, TJs has a ton of what I would call "new" holiday-type dessert products; mini gingerbread men, and various chocolate goodies. I'm going to have to stock up soon!
