These 14 Delicious Gingerbread-Flavored Snacks Are the Ultimate Winter Treats
When we think of festive holiday treats, no flavor springs to mind faster than gingerbread.
That classic combination of ginger, cinnamon and allspice just screams winter, and frankly, it's a combo we don't mind enjoying all year round. And like all of the best flavors, gingerbread has broken out of the box and expanded way beyond cookies in 2020. Here are all of the gingerbread-flavored goodies we're obsessed with this year.

Halo Top Gingerbread House: $3.88
If you were disappointed that the Ben & Jerry's offering on this list wasn't ice cream, don't be, because Halo Top delivers with their Gingerbread House flavor. The flavor is light and creamy, while beautifully evoking the flavors of a real gingerbread house. Plus, the entire pint has only 360 calories, which seems to defy all the laws of ice cream.

Amoretti's Gingerbread Creamy Cookie Spread: $8.99
Our lives simply haven't been the same since we discovered cookie butter, and though the traditional speculoos cookies that go into classic cookie butter are similar to gingerbread, we think the ginger cookies will always reign supreme. Gingerbread is all about the heat of the spices, and those come through beautifully in this spread.
Wild Friends Gingerbread Peanut Butter: 3 pack for $20.99
Some people are purists who'll always prefer peanut butter over cookie butter. Don't worry—there's a spread on this list for you, too.
