Easter Day always brings Cadbury Creme Eggs from the Easter rabbit; Halloween brings tons of candy, including the infamous Candy Corn; Valentine's Day brings the classic chocolate-covered strawberries, too. These 10 Christmas-time foods only come around this time of the year, and we'll miss them until Christmas 2011:
