Seasonal food items

We were talking today at work about seasonal food items. Fast food mainly, they were advertising the McRib on the radio. I haven’t had one in years, but if I remember correctly, I thought the McRib tasted exactly like the barbeque rib sandwiches served in school lunches. It seems weird to me people are so excited for what I think of as a hot lunch sandwich. Thomas says there’s actually a website tracking where McRibs are currently available. Apparently, even though they’re only sold nationwide for a few weeks a year, they’re sold in various locations on a rotating basis and the website will tell you where you can get one.

Are there seasonal food items you get excited for? Like, maybe a Pumpkin Spice Latte? Pumpkin pie? Egg Nog? Peppermint mocha creamer?

  1. Honeycrisp apples. If you’ve ever had one, you know what I mean.

  2. I second the honeycrisp apple vote.

    Also, egg nog. It’s weird and thick and DELIGHTFUL.

  3. Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark. Yes.

  4. I am loving the seasonal caramel salt mochas at Starbucks. Well, I think I’ve only had 3, but they’re good.

    Pumpkin pie, cheesy potatoes (which I could make any season, I realize, but I don’t), hmmm… stuffing!

  5. Mmm, yes. Pumpkin pie and egg nog. Also, these certain cookies that for whatever reason we only make at Christmas. It’s not like they’re “Christmas cookies” or anything, that’s just the only time we make them.
