There’s snow on the ground and it’s as close to officially being winter as it can be. And with the appearance of that icy precipitation, pumpkin spice is on the way out and the best flavoring, peppermint, has its time to shine. Here are some of the best ways to enjoy peppermint.

Tim Horton’s Peppermint Iced Coffee

It may be freezing out, but I still prefer my caffeine cold, and Tim’s iced coffee is amazing with peppermint in it.

Peppermint tea or hot chocolate

If you want something warm with mint, tea and hot chocolate is the way to go. Adding whipped cream and a candy cane (or a candy cane spoon) to peppermint hot chocolate increases the Christmas factor even more.

Candy Canes

A staple Christmas candy and a tasty treat. They also make great holiday decorations.

Bath and Body Work’s Twisted Peppermint

This is one of the best smelling fragrances from the store. Available in perfume, candles (careful if you live on campus, they’re not allowed) and more.

Peppermint bark

Made with a perfect mixture of white chocolate, dark chocolate and peppermint bits, it’s perfect for gift giving.

Hershey’s Candy Cane bars

If you love white chocolate and specialty food items, I recommend trying it.

Bob’s Sweet Stripes Soft Mint Candy

A little grandma’s purse here, but if you don’t have time to suck on a mint, the melt-able version is just as good.

Peppermint Patties

Hershey knows what they’re doing with mint candies. They also make a candle based on the candy (and yes, it smells amazing).
