It’s not even Christmas yet, and we’re already feeling merry and bright. Shelves are filling up with all the best seasonal goodies—like peppermint creme pies, Pillbury’s hot cocoa rolls and even Chocolate Peppermint Bark Stuffed Puffs—fit for the foodie on your list. Needless to say, it’s hard not to be excited for the holidays this year, and even more treats are tumbling down the chimney.

Hostess is getting in the spirit of Christmas, too. Santa better make room in his belly, because li-mint-ed edition Mint Chocolate Twinkies are here!

What We Know About This Seasonal Snack

We’re saying goodbye to gold for the season and embracing chocolate and mint. These unique Twinkies feature a creamy mint filling and a chocolate cake shell, making for the perfect pre-dinner snack. Every box comes with 10 individually wrapped cakes, so you can share or enjoy the box all on your own. They’re reminiscent of the chocolate Halloween Twinkies that rolled out last September, except instead of s’cream filling, you’re enjoying the coziest flavors of Christmas.

If you like jalapeno poppers, try these brisket-filled Texas Twinkies.

Where to Find Mint Chocolate Twinkies

Hostess Mint Chocolate Twinkies are out nationwide, and they’ll likely be available through the holiday season or while supplies last. If you’re on the hunt, start with Walmart—they’ve already got the Twinkies listed on their website, though you can’t get them for delivery. You’ll have to head in-store for these guys, and each box will only cost you around $3. (That means you should load up the cart before they disappear for the season.)

One thing we know for sure? We’re not leaving these out for Santa.
