    I wait all year for the Mini Peppermint Meringues and Minty Mallows <3

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I haven’t tried those, Lisa! I’m going to have to make a trip to Trader Joe’s!

  2. SamShops

    Are the advent calendars worth $20?

    • Sara

      I have bought them for several years, and IMO, yes. You get several samples of quality products that easily add up to more than $20 value. My only complaint is that sometimes I’ve really liked a product in the set that isn’t sold in full size or year round.
