Whittaker's has been on a hot streak of new releases lately, bringing chocolate lovers innovative flavours like the sell-out success that was 'Hazella'. Now the beloved chocolate brand has just launched a limited-edition block for the festive season and, despite the fact it feels a little premature, it's got us thinking it might be time to get the tree up and deck the halls.

Whittaker's Candy Cane Block takes its creamy milk chocolate and mixes in a generous amount of peppermint-flavoured candy cane pieces, sending the eater on a trip down memory lane back to those carefree days when you'd hand out a candy cane to everyone in your class.

While a classic box of Cadbury Roses is usually the Chrisso gift of choice for neighbours, co-workers and teachers, we're guessing this one might just give it a run for its money this year — especially as the limited-edition packaging means there's no actual wrapping required. The team have included a space on the block for a festive message so you don't need to bother with a card:

Alternatively, you could just save the whole thing for yourself — no judgements here.

Whittaker's Candy Cane Block will be available while stocks last in a classic 250g block, in stores nationwide from Monday, November 6.
