Flashback: Holiday 2005
Holiday 2005 featured a whimsical whirl of sweet treats! Being a HUGE fan of the holiday collections every year, this one sure was memorable! Starting from the top;
Holiday Berry- A spiced cranberry blend; they've used this formula regularly for the holidays disguised with different names: Sparkling Cranberry (holiday 2008), Winter Berries (holiday 2011) are the same.
Berry Cream Pie- Reminded me of the original Berry Jelly Donut Lip Smacker, with a little more chocolatey undertone, but light.
Whipped Cream- Very similar to the more recent Holiday Frosting from holiday 2009.
Strawberry Cupcake- Love this version, a very decadent strawberry cake flavor, Strawberry Sprinkle is the same formula.
Candy Cane -That strong, cool and tingly peppermint many of us love and miss- they definitely haven't used this formula since this collection.
Sugar Plum- Very different than the original Sugar Plum we all know, this wasn't nearly as sweet and had a more soft plum smell. This was good but I prefer original Sugar Plum still.
Gum Drop Candy- Loved this flavor! If you were a fan of the 90's Gummy Fruits/ Gooey Fruits, this was the same. A tart but sweet cherry grape-ish candy flavor. Gummy and oh-so-yummy!
Cream Puff- A sweet vanilla pastry type flavor, they've used this formula in quite a bit of Easter collections through-out the years since, Cake Donut is similar, but this was lighter for sure.
