Shamrock Shakes and Pumpkin Spice Lattes: the Best-Branded Food for Every Season How brands have focused on selling specialty products during an especially hot (or cold) time.
There's something about October, with Halloween in the air and scary movie marathons playing on T.V., that suddenly makes candy corn -- something you've probably ignored for the past 11 months -- a must-have. Apple pie never sounds better than on a summer day, with a scoop of ice cream on top, and hot chocolate somehow tastes better when it's cold outside . . . even when it's the same temperature in your kitchen year-round.
These brands have smartly tapped into that seasonal magic by creating limited releases of foods you can't help but crave -- if only for a little while.
