Twelve Days of Christmas: The Festive Variety of Russell Stover Santas (and Snowmen, too!)

CC_ChristmasRussellSTover_TITLE PLATEIt’s Christmas Day and the final post in CollectingCandy.com’s Twelve Days of Christmas series for this year.

Before I get to today’s content, a brief personal message:  I’m spending my holiday safe, warm and surrounded by family and friends that I love.  As I look out into the world I’m reminded how very fortunate I am to be doing so.  I count my blessings because of all of these people, and they remind me why I enjoy this season so much.  Best wishes to all.

Back in October I posted a piece on the many Russell Stover Pumpkin releases for Halloween and today I’ll be featuring a similar variety of holiday Russell Stover Santa wrappers out this year along with a few Snowmen wrappers, too!

As I’ve made an effort to pick up every flavor of Russell Stover Santa and Snowman this year, I am once again amazed at the variety that can be found on shelves.   Before I started putting my collection together this year, I had guessed there might only be eight different wrappers to be found, but it turns out there are more than twenty!

So without further discussion, here are the many examples of Russell Stover Christmas Santa and Snowman wrappers I found this year:

That’s not quite all of the Santa and Snowman variety that Russell Stover released this year.  There were a handful that I could only find on the Russell Stover web site.  I ordered several last week and received them yesterday but since I don’t have scans ready, here’s a preview from the images on the Russell Stover site [Please note that  I will replace these with scans of the wrappers when I get them posted -tonight or tomorrow]:

And finally, here is a package of Russell Stover “Itty Bitty” Santa chocolates.  I thought it should be included:

And that’s it – the full and surprisingly diverse range of Russell Stover holiday Santa and Snowman wrappers for this year!  I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing them and I hope you enjoyed all the entries in my Twelve Days of Christmas this year.  It was fun bringing them together and it certainly inspired some holiday cheer and the spirit of the season within me.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!  See you next time!
