Name your absolutely crazy self-indulgence "I would never eat this at any other time of year" food for Christmas/holiday time?

We all have (at least) one special treat food which we never would dream of consuming at any other time of the year - but which we seek out at some TO eatery in this season. What is yours?

To start the thread with a relatively recent discovery:

The Peanut Butter & Jam Milkshake at Holy Chuck - 1450 Yonge just S of St Clair

Viscous but drinkable through the wide straw this estimable establishment provides, this is a treat where the distinct flavours of peanut butter and jam emerge and somehow combine into a very toothsome drink - rich, obviously, but not absolutely cloying - maybe the slight saltiness of the PB is the saving grace.

Would not be a daily drink, but awesome for my (only...I wish!) Christmas indulgence.

Holy Chuck
1450 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON M4T 1Y5, CA

  1. I only eat this at Christmas because of the seasonal nature of it (sort of) but to add to your thread I would say that around this time of year I always get a craving for the delicious black cake from Gerry's on St. Clair: extra boozy, so decadent.

    (In general though I think when I eat out I tend to eat healthier around the holidays because I'm eating so many rich treats at home/work etc.)

    1. Vacherin Mont D'Or from Alex Farms. Cheesey gooey heaven!

        1. Folks, we'd like to ask that you please keep this thread focused on indulgences specific to Toronto or Ontario. General indulgences (e.g., "I pig out on ice cream and cookies") can be discussed on the General Chowhounding Topics board.


          1. Try the Salted Caramel and Nutella shake. Holy Chuck!!!
