It is also offering peppermint mocha cappuccino, available in a signature holiday mug, and a red velvet whoopie pie with cream cheese icing, for 99 cents apiece.

For breakfast, the c-stores are offering a hot kolache with maple-flavored premium pork breakfast sausage, and for an afternoon snack, Picadillo Norteño puff pies with seasoned ground beef, carrots and potatoes stuffed inside buttery, flaky pie dough.
