From Candy Corn Popsicles to Christmas Dinner Donuts

The classic flavors that come from gingerbread cookies, pumpkin pie and birthday cake can be tasted in new forms thanks to these unique ideas. This includes getting the flavors of gingerbread in the form of a muffin, biting into a chilled candy corn popsicle or taking a slice of eggnog pie. Rather than remixing the flavors, foodies are able to indulge in what's nostalgic and familiar in a new way.

For Christmas, birthdays and Easter, brands like Clif, Oreo and Prairie Farms have respectively released energy bars flavored like holiday pies and gingerbread, cookies filled with cake icing and milk that tastes like Peeps and even an 'Easter Egg Nog.'

While it's common to see certain flavors like peppermint and pumpkin spice shared within the dessert category, these inventive creations show that they can be worked into even the most unexpected beverages and sweet snacks as well.
