Hershey's Candy Cane is more fun than you can shake a stick at

You might notice this wrapper is empty. I couldn't wait to take photos before eating.
It's the holiday season, a time for jingle bells, Christmas trees and absurd seasonal snacks.

You probably know about Reese's Peanut Butter Trees, but did you know there are Peeps Christmas Trees? How about green and red layer cake mixes?

Ignore all of that, which really does exist. There's only one seasonal product to try this year: Hershey's Candy Cane bars.

The name doesn't do nearly enough to describe these creamy candy morsels packing just the right hint of mint. Unwrap the bar and you'll find a relatively standard-looking Hershey slab, only it's made out of white chocolate and appears to have chicken pox.

Those pox aren't contagious, though. They're just tiny dots of candy cane. And they're delectable.

The whole idea is delectable, really. It's like a softer, easier to eat version of peppermint bark.

Try one and you'll be barking for more, too. I'd love to go on longer about this candy, but I need to get this post up quickly so you can hit the store and try one. Five sporks out of five.
