I'll second Guru Zim with the nog love for Xmas, especially with Golden Oreos now. Other seasonal treats are the russell stover easter eggs for easter and marshmallow pumpkins for halloween. I really have to learn to stop eating this stuff for my health, but everytime I see them on sale during the holiday, I can't help myself.

Yeah, I was quite excited on Saturday when I went to Target to find my wife a card for Valentines Day (yeah, I waited until the day of....it's ok though, she sleeps in on Saturdays), the Easter candy section was already up and going. Sure enough, Cadbury a pleanty.
I'll third the Sam Adams Winter Lager and second the peanut butter girl scout cookies. I eat those things by the sleave.
And, I didn't know this, but apparenlty there are different manufacturers of GS cookies whose cookies go by different names. For example the peanut butter ones used to be known as Dos-e-dos but now just go by peanut butter sandwich. But someone was telling me that it may just be that it's a different distributor because you can still get Dos-e-dos.

See girlscoutcookies.org (girlscoutcookies.org) and click on "Meet the Cookies" in the top left corner. You'll get a popup describing the cookies made by each bakery. Unfortunately, you can't buy online, but girlscoutcookies.org will take your contact info and send it to the nearest troop so that they can call or email you and take your order. Also, one of the bakeries allows the troops to list the time and location (cookielocator.littlebrownie.com) of cookie sales being held in public places like the grocery store. If the troops in your area use Little Brownie Bakers, you may be in luck.
I would just like to say that this is the LAST YEAR I let Aaron talk to the Girl Scout taking orders at the door. Next year he gets to keep the dog from licking the impossibly tiny Girl Scout to pieces. (Dog thought: ZOMG! SHE SAID COOKIE!!!)
Sure we got two boxes of thin mints ordered (guess who likes those) but not one box of the carmel coconut crack ones! I'm not even sure they do store sales around here because their pre-sales are so good.
For everyday stuff I stick with Maxwell House (Master Blend, no less) because I can barely even taste my coffee first thing in the morning. Best coffee I ever had, though, was the coffee they served at this Indian place in Miami. Absolutely great stuff.
