Surviving Your Nuttiest Holiday Moments
Whenever there is an excuse to get a bunch of relatives and friends together in one room, hilarity is bound to ensue. And what time of year produces more nutty moments than the winter holidays? Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa – however you celebrate, it can be a crazy time of year! Can you relate?
I remember when I was a newlywed, I was at my parent’s house with all the relatives for our annual Christmas Eve get-together. I came into the kitchen and snuggled up next to my husband, wrapping my arms around him and resting my head on his shoulder. Bliss.
Except it wasn’t my husband.
It was my brother-in-law.
What do you do in that moment? Slink away with a face redder than Santa’s suit? Because that’s what I did!
Those precious moments, and others like it, (you know you’ve had them), call for a handful of cashews and maybe a little short-term memory loss. Whatever works. The new Gold Emblem flavored cashews are the perfect way to help you get through your “nuttiest holiday moments”.
Gold Emblem contains more than 250, (yeah, that’s a LOT!), great-tasting snacks, beverages, and groceries with both crowd favorites and unique flavors – including nuts, trail mixes, chips, pretzels, dried fruits, candies, cookies, spices, juices, condiments, baking essentials and breakfast bars. I mean, what’s your fancy? Take your pick! I’ll take all of the above.
We know that with holiday entertaining comes a wide variety of taste preferences – and right now CVS Pharmacy is making it easier and more convenient for customers to opt for high-quality, flavorful choices nationwide, with tasty combinations to appeal to a wide variety of unique snacking preferences.
CVS Pharmacy’s exclusive snack line, Gold Emblem, launched 3 limited edition cashew flavors (Thai Spice, Coconut, and Dill Pickle.)
Check these out:
Okay, dish – what cashew flavor catches your eye? Is it the Coconut? The Dill Pickle? Or is it the Thai-Style Spice?
In our house, the favorite depends on who you are asking. My favorite is the coconut – hands down. It’s exactly the flavor I love and that would be the distraction I need from the holiday nuttiness.
My husband, on the other hand, likes things spicy and loves the Thai-Style Spice variety. Thai flavored anything is his default favorite!
My kids all go for the Dill Pickle flavor and eat them like they are going out of style.
Okay, which of these flavors would help you get through those nutty family dynamics that show up during the holidays?
Will the coconut cashews help you get through your mother’s suggestion that you join a gym? Will the Dill pickle cashews take away the pain of drunk uncle Jeff doing his best Chris Farley impression? Or will the Thai Style Spice cashews burn away the memory of Grandpa’s false teeth falling in the gravy?
Here is the fun part, everyone. CVS Pharmacy is giving customers (i.e. YOU) across the country a chance to make their voices heard and help select a new, permanent cashew flavor. They want you to SNACK and VOTE for your favorite flavor and they will make the winning flavor a permanent flavor!
