Loves Of Late, Winter Edition

Some of the holiday-themed things that have been rocking my (warm, fuzzy) socks…

{1} Silk Holiday Nog

I am a total eggnog devotee – I can’t help but buy every ‘nog flavored item I spot – and I think Silk’s soy nog is better than any other iteration.  It is just so darn good; super thick and sweet but only 80 calories per cup compared with more than double that in the original.  And you can make the best overnight oats with it.

{2} Lay’s Wavy Milk Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

Salty and sweet for the win.  These have the perfect balance of chocolate to chip.  I haven’t tried very many chocolate covered potato chips in my day, but these are definitely better than TJ’s kind.  I don’t know why they are only available around Christmas, but Adam is ob-sessed with them.

{3} Old Factory Candles Gift Sets

Old Factory Candles (sold exclusively on Amazon) offered to send me one of their three-piece themed candle sets.  Each candle burns for 20 hours and is hand-poured in the US with natural soy wax.

I chose “Happy Holidays,” obviously.

Gingerbread, Candy Cane, and Christmas tree.  The ‘bread is sweet but not too spicy, the candy cane is pure peppermint goodness, and the tree totally makes up for the fact that we can’t have a real tree because the dog is a monster.  I love them.

In fact, I’m such a fan I plan on buying more on my own.  Just look at some of these clever lines – “Winter Wonderland” is hot cocoa, roasted chestnut, and first snow; “Coffee Shop” is coffee bean, hazelnut, and chai tea; and “High as a Kite” is cannabis, incense, and bag ‘o cookies!

P.S. Other than the candles which were sent to me to review, these products were purchased with my own money.  I received no compensation (beyond the free goods) for this post.  All opinions are my own.
