The holiday season is just around the corner, and consumers are looking for holiday-inspired flavors. This month’s products may be limited edition, but they bring the warmth and joy of the holidays while they are available.

Chocolate bites

Chocolove’s limited-edition chocolate Bites in festive fall packaging are back. These bite-size, pumpkin-shaped confections are available in two varieties: Pumpkin Spice and Peanut Butter.

Chocolove uses ethically sourced ingredients to make European-style chocolate. The Bites are Rainforest Alliance Certified and Non-GMO Project Verified. Founder Timothy Moley says that he believes consumers can taste the difference because of these ingredients.

The Pumpkin Spice flavor is made with 33% milk chocolate and filled with white chocolate, pumpkin pie filling, and seasonal spices. The Peanut Butter variety is made with 55% dark chocolate and filled with creamy peanut butter.

Both flavors of the Chocolove Bites are available for purchase at Albertsons, Natural Grocers, Jewel-Osco, Raley’s, and New Seasons Markets at a suggested retail price of $7.99.

Holiday-inspired soda

Zevia launched a new Cran-Raspberry flavor soda just in time for the holiday season.

Zevia makes sodas with zero sugar, zero calories, and no artificial colors. These caffeine-free beverages are naturally sweetened with stevia leaf extract and are Non-GMO Project Verified. The brand offers a wide range of beverages, including sodas, energy drinks, teas, mixers, and sparkling waters.

Zevia’s new Cran-Raspberry flavor is tart and refreshing, with a fruity flavor profile reminiscent of the holidays. This flavor can be enjoyed on its own or mixed in a variety of cocktails and mocktails.

Zevia Cran-Raspberry sodas can be purchased in an 8-pack of 12 oz cans on the brand’s website, on Amazon, and at Target and select Costco locations at a suggested retail price of $6.99.

Pumpkin coffee at home

For the first time, Dunkin’ is giving consumers a seasonal flavor right in their own homes with its new Pumpkin Munchkin Coffee Creamer. The creamer is inspired by the brand’s beloved Pumpkin Munchkins Donut Holes.

“Dunkin always has an extensive menu featuring pumpkin-flavored treats, and this season, people who run on Dunkin’ now have a chance to bring the taste of fall into their kitchens,” Brian Gilbert, vice president of retail business development at Dunkin’, said in a press release.

The new Pumpkin Munchkin Creamer features a pumpkin-forward flavor with hints of sweet doughnut glaze and natural spices, replicating the taste of the Dunkin’ Donut Holes. Made with real cream and cane sugar, Dunkin’s Pumpkin Munchkin Creamer is sold in 32 oz bottles at major retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99.
