Twelve Days of Christmas: Whitman’s new Peanuts Christmas Chocolate Bars!
Every 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:
Whitman’s – Peanuts Christmas Fa La La La La – chocolate bar holiday box – December 2013
Whitman’s – Peanuts Christmas Snoopy & Woodstock dance line – chocolate bar holiday box – December 2013
Whitman’s – Peanuts Christmas Snoopy’s dog house with Lights – chocolate bar holiday box – December 2013
Whitman’s – Peanuts Christmas Tree – chocolate bar holiday box – December 2013
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!
