THE TOP 10 CHRISTMAS THEMED TREATS

Every year for the Holidays, standard, run-of-the-mill products get their special Christmas make-overs and become something just a little bit more festive. Now for this list's purpose I'm not talking about foods that come out just for Christmas on their own like candy canes, Christmas wreath cookies, Christmas candies, and the like. No, these items already have a standard that's out all year long, these just get the pretty packaging and Holiday shapes or flavors. So, in an attempt to locate as many of these particular products as I could to fill a top 10, I ran into a bit of a SNAFU. It seems it's more difficult than you might otherwise think to find decent pics of this stuff on the web. So, instead, I hopped on down to our local Wal-Mart and actually snapped a couple photos on my own rather stealthy-like. I was a little worried that some vested buffoon might apprehend me and I'd have to sputter out some nonsense story about being an undercover Wal-Mart secret exec or some shit. But I didn't, and I kept my secret snapping to myself. Well, with that, here's the list. YUM!




10) MCDONALD'S EGG NOG SHAKE

** I really wish I could find something good to say about this mess, but I just can't stomach dairy and poultry blended into a fluid custard. Gack! Be that as it may, this particular item is a hugely popular twist on Mickey Dee's standard shake flavors and really does a fine job of representing the Holiday much the same way as their equally wretched Shamrock Shake. Vile. **






9) STARBUCKS HOLIDAY FLAVORED COFFEE BEVERAGE GIFT PACK OF DOOM

** You know it's nearly Christmas when Starbuck's Coffee Monopoly Conglomerate introduces its bevy of holiday flavors like ginger bread, cinnamon, candy cane, and Bits O' Rudolph. You too can own the deliciousness for your very own for the mere pittance of one month's salary. Enjoy! **






8) HOLIDAY CLUB SNACK STICKS

** This is one of the pictures I took in the store so please excuse the little flash point in the center. Anyway, it appears that these Club snacks are pretty much the same thing that they always are, just with a nice Holiday box including a cute little red bow and some Christmasy sparkles to boot. Yum, Crisp-Mas! **






7) PEEPS FOR THE HOLIDAYS

** Remember back a dozen years ago or so when Peeps were just an Easter product so named for their little chick design? Yeah, well then they inundated every freakin' Holiday like like some kind of marshmallow mold. Seriously, check out the Peeps web site HERE to really experience their take over. So, as you can see, these demon mallow spawn are pretty much always available, therefore have an inclusion in this list. Besides, those Gingerbread Men are really damn cute. **






6) CHRISTMAS AND COCA COLA: A HOLIDAY STANDARD

** I would likely be chastised for not including Coke on this list since it's a well known fact that the design for the company's Santa has pretty much become the gold standard for how he looks to everyone. It is assumed that whomever designed Santa did so for Coke making his red and white get-up match the logo color scheme. Well, whether or not that's true is beyond me, but, regardless, Santa adorns Coke's stuff from November through February. Ho Ho Ho! **






5) WHO DOESN'T THINK CHRISTMAS WHEN YOU'RE EATING POP TARTS?

** For the first time this year, Kellogg's has introduced not only a Christmas-flavored Pop Tart, but also gift-like packaging including TO and FROM spots and a bow. Look, I can dig wanting to dress up your food stuff for the Holiday, but if anyone ever gave me a Pop Tart for Christmas, I'd have kicked their ass. Holiday style. **






4) LITTLE DEBBIE LOOKS CHILLY

** Each and every year, Little Debbie releases several cakes, brownies, and donut flavors that feature seasonal seasonings like cherry cordial, cinnamon, and sparkly Holiday sugar. Beyond that, they've re-molded many of their cakes into Christmas Trees! Now that's brilliant! I've included two pictures for this one because, frankly, I thoroughly enjoy both of these. NOM! **





3) THE INFAMOUS JONES SODA HOLIDAY GIFT PACK

** Say, that looks yummy: sugar plum! Can't go too wrong there. Okay, so, egg nog... yeah, that makes sense. Wait, does that say 'Christmas Tree'? So, what, pine? Eww... And, finally -well, this one has to be good, right?- Christmas Ham. Ham. In a bottle. Hmm... **






2) OREO PLUS CANDY CANE CREME = AWESOME

** Oreos are the nation's best-selling cookie. Seriously, look it up. So, what could possibly top their already amazing flavors such as: Double Stuff, Mint, Chocolate Creme, and Fudge? Well, I'll tell you: Candy Cane. Oh. Sweet. LORD that sounds like a little disc of Heaven right there. **



I forgot this pic a second ago. Sorry. Oh, and It's one of mine. OOH!


1) THE CAP'N DONS A SANTA SUIT FOR THE HOLIDAY

** That's right, the number one has got to be Christmas Crunch from the fine folks at the Capn' Crunch factory. Each box contains three essential Christmas shapes: trees, stars, and Santa hats! Oh, and little balls supposedly representing either ornaments or rabbit turds. I sincerely hope it's the former. Oh, and I've tossed in a commercial for your Holiday pleasure. Cool! **

  1. Hey Stew,

    I see that you have created a bunch of top ten lists, they are awesome! Maybe if you want to improve your popularity in the US (and possibly even more so in certain African countries) you can post your lists on our site http://www.toptentopten.com/ which is entirely user generated top ten lists. We have seen that a lot of bloggers who post their lists to our site are getting a lot of traffic to their site.

    You can source your list when you create it, and a link to your site appears at the bottom of the list. A lot of people click on your link because the original source always looks better. Another thing we've noticed people do is put your url in the description, and make the list votable, so people can change the rank of your items. Votes are really what makes your list and profile on our site more popular. The more popular your list is on our site, the more people see it, and hopefully will visit your site.

    Let me know if you have any questions, and we hope to see your lists on our site.

    Best Regards,
    Vince

  6. Thanks, for the answer... but this hypothetical person asked a clan member to log CWEST as well to take a look and they couldnt see this persons hair either. This person made their character right after chaos was released and they told me that they thought that it would be fixed now.

  7. We had a bit of launcher trouble the other day and the set image there wasn't showing up correctly. I believe that in an effort for a quick fix, the Turkish launcher image was uploaded instead of the English one. It's not really much of a big deal, all things considered, especially since it'll be replaced when we next update the launcher info.

  8. the game then opens C&B webpage and i login, i go ahead and confirm payment but when i have to put my verified by VISA code the web never loads. this doesn't happen with, for example, mozilla firefox. i know the problem is with Internet Explorer because i contacted C&B customer service and they told me so.

  9. because there's no reason for such information to be here on the forums, threads asking about 'why was I banned?' or asking for customer service are removed by the mods. You may notice that you and the other user involved in that thread can still post here on the forums, so obviously you were not banned from the KOL forums themselves.

  10. emphasis has been placed on fixing these new hacks before they get a chance to be an issue, so moving skills has taken a back seat for the time being. They will continue to be moved, but not quite as fast as we'd personally like. Last I heard, Mage skills were on the block.

  11. nfortunately, it's not up to me alone. Punishments will be decided upon in the immediate future once the developers get the NPC fixed (which they are currently in the process of doing as we type) and we pull up a data report to figure out the scope of the abuse.

  12. However, there is a possibility that some offending clans may slip through the cracks because of corrupted or missing data.

  13. ok this one is both a question and a suggestion, that hopefully may appeal to you as you are the poor soul tasked with looking into the hacked accounts.

  14. The problem there is that nobody likes to start from scratch on a new server. If there were the option to move characters inter-server, then I don't think it'd be such an issue... but that's a whole other discussion and I've already wandered off topic enough as it is.

    I've got a hundred and eleven pages of questions that say otherwise.
    Do gms check top 100/10/3 ladder and/or np people? just watching lvl 35 with dragon symbol makes my stomach ache. i think its just not humanily possible to gain 100k ladder with ardream char (or at least 99% cant do it), depending on a server activity and so on, how do you find npt-s?

    As for a more immediately up to date explanation of my duties;
    First of all, I'm the Community Liaison. That means I'm in charge of the forums (both English and Turkish, though admittedly I leave the Turkish forums almost entirely in the hands of the Mods since I don't know the language) and handling community-related events and concerns.\

  17. Huh... that's odd. The website shouldn't log you off unless you specifically do it yourself. I just tested the support page and didn't have any problems with it at all. I'm using the most recent version of the Firefox browser.
