Williams Sonoma celebrates second annual National Peppermint Bark Day
FOX Business correspondent Madison Alworth reports on bakeries raising prices as costs of supplies and ingredients increase on 'Varney & Co.'
The holiday season brings cold weather, holiday parties — peppermint-flavored everything.
Williams Sonoma's peppermint bark is one of the items Americans tend to rave about from year to year.
The tin box filled with peppermint-flavored bark has grown in popularity, allowing the brand to celebrate big on December 1, otherwise known as National Peppermint Bark Day.

For this year's festivities, the brand will offer over 20 different peppermint bark flavors.
