While unwrapping the gifts under the tree every year was definitely a highlight of any kid's Christmas, equally awesome was diving into our stockings to find out what delicious treats Santa left for us to get our sugar highs from.

Gotta get the obvious out of the way first, but seriously, who doesn't like candy canes? There're so many varieties that you can't even complain about the mint taste.

Lifesaver Books

Lifesavers

Not only was the book itself the cutest way to hold candy ever, but you got pretty much every kind of Lifesaver you could ever want, and THEN SOME.

Amazon

There are so many different kinds of these nowadays that you don't even need the chocolate ones, but for my money, there was no better way to count down the days 'til Christmas than a sweet treat every day.

More tasty Christmas goodness is coming up!

11 Photos Of '90s Fast Food Restaurants That Will Bring Back So Many Delicious Memories

Growing up, there were very few things that got us as excited as when our parents told us that they were taking us out to our favorite fast food joint. While the food and the affordable prices played a huge role, there were many other things that these eateries offered that made us obsessed with them. McDonald's Play Places, anyone?
