Northfield, Ill.-based Kraft Foods, the world’s largest chocolate maker and biscuit baker, is making the holidays around the world even sweeter this year with seasonal biscuits and chocolates, in addition to annual favorites.
“People around the world eagerly await the special chocolates, cookies, crackers and other products we make only for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays,” said Mary Beth West, chief category and marketing officer. “The response to these products every year is fantastic when people celebrate and entertain with their friends and families.”
There are limited-edition products designed for traditions in each country. Here’s a sampling of what Kraft Foods is offering to consumers in North America:
Canadian traditions borrow from Scottish, French, English and other cultures. And, like the UK, Canada celebrates the Boxing Day holiday on the day after Christmas. In Canada this year, Kraft offers a tree ornament full of individually wrapped Toblerone Swiss Milk Chocolate and Honey Almond Nougat. New this year are Oreo Holiday Treats with thin, crispy chocolate Oreo wafers topped with a layer of smooth Oreo creme and covered in dark chocolate.
The holidays mean lots of breakfasts, brunches, dinners and parties in the U.S. Among the new and returning seasonal products are Snowflake and fudge-covered Ritz and Sweet Cinnamon Wheat Thins crackers, Red Creme Winter Oreo cookies, Gingerbread Honey Maid graham crackers, Royal Vinter Spice Gevalia coffee, Planters Winter Spiced Nuts, Creme Brulee Almonds and Tailgate Nut Mix and Almonds, Kraft Jet-Puffed French vanilla SnowmanMallows, PeppermintMallows and HolidayMallows.
