Celebrate The Winter Solstice With These Comfort Foods

You'll literally go nuts over them.

Move over Nutella because there's a new selection of toast-toppers in town. And with the midst of winter upon us -- today officially marks the winter solstice -- why wouldn't you want to rug up with some comforting warm toast drizzled in chocolatey goodness?

But seriously, while it might be hard to believe that any spread could EVER outshine the hazelnut-y deliciousness of Nutella, we're sure the latest additions to the condiments section of your local supermarket will literally knock your winter socks right off.

Created by Mars in the UK, the latest spreads are inspired by the some of the brand's most favourite classics, and the response was exciting to say the very least. In fact, people were so chuffed to get their hands on a jar, it was kinda like winning a ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory -- but let's get real, trust the Brits to take chocolate treats to the next level.

Among the popular spreads causing a stir are Maltesers Teasers, Bounty, Twix, and Cadbury's Caramel Spread. Eek -- but there are countless others already on the shelves, including Guylian's Chocolate Praline Spread. With so much chocolately tastiness to choose from, where to begin?

But, we know what you're thinking ... what about if you live outside of the UK?

Well, don't panic! The good news is you can get your hands on pretty much anything these days -- thanks to international delivery. What's more, nowadays there are plenty of pop-up British and Irish candy stores that carry many of the classic brands -- thank goodness.

And it's not only your morning toast that will benefit from the delectable spreads, quite frankly, the possibilities are endless. Aside from adding it to your oh-so-sweet pancakes and biscuits -- or dare we say, eating straight out of the jar with a spoon -- no doubt, the spreads will inspire you to dabble with your culinary experimentation.

Sure, over the years we've seen delicious toast-toppers come and go -- you know what we're talkin' about Fluff and Reeces Peanut Butter Chooclate Spread -- but can we just say the latest additions couldn't come at a better time -- so turn up the heater, crank up the toaster and get spreadin', peeps.
