Don’t let your candy dishes be lonesome this holiday season. Fill them with Mike and Ike Merry Mix (www.justborn.com/mike-and-ike), a tempting combination of lime, cherry and holiday punch flavors.

We like the bright colors featured in this limited edition Mike and Ike package and the sweet/tart natural flavors of the candy, soft and bite-sized. Add it to the dessert section of your brunch table or tie a bow around a package for a nice gift to bring to holiday housewarmings!
