Twelve Days of Christmas: Whitman’s new Peanuts Christmas Chocolate Bars!

CC_PeanutsChristmasTITLE PLATEEvery year Whitman’s releases their standard chocolate bars with all kinds of holiday-themed package designs.  Occasionally, they’ll utilize licensed characters or content for those designs and for 2013 they tapped the Peanuts holiday classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas, as their muse.

Like most folks I’m a fan that wonderful Peanuts Christmas story, so picking these up was a no-brainer.  Released as a set of four different bar-shaped boxes, these packages each originally contained a gold foil-wrapped chocolate bar.  Here they are:

That’s the whole set!  There’s something about Peanuts that really heightens my connection to the holiday season – I dig it.

I’ve got other Christmas-related errands to attend to, so I’ll leave you with that.

See you next time!
