Christmas, like winter, is coming. It can't be stopped, so we might as well embrace it. Even if we haven't hit Halloween yet.

On Monday, Texas-based Blue Bell posted on their social media accounts that "Christmas Cookies Ice Cream is in stores beginning today." They call it a mix of "your favorite holiday cookies" (chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and sugar) in sugar ice cream with red sprinkles and a green icing swirl. It looks very festive, but who on Earth is limiting their chocolate chip cookie intake to the holiday season?

Joining the Christmas Cookies flavor on store shelves are other holiday favorites: Peppermint and Peppermint Bark, for when you need your mint flavor to have a bit more bite. (Get it? Because bark? Like... nevermind.)

The flavors are only available in the half gallon size. Sorry, pint-size eaters. Guess you'll just have to eat more ice cream.
