There’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy together at Kings Island’s WinterFest, like ice skating on the Royal Fountain, seeing the Eiffel Tower transformed into a magical 314-foot tall Christmas tree, live shows, millions of dazzling lights, rides and holiday characters spreading merriment like Jack Frost, Candy Cane and the Sugar Plum Fairy. But one of my favorite parts about WinterFest is all the delicious holiday treats. It’s hard to pick a favorite.

Here is a guide so that you don’t miss out on treating your taste buds to the sweet and savory flavors of WinterFest this holiday season. These tasty treats are sure to put even old Scrooge in the Christmas Spirit!
