Delicious Emily’s Holiday Season is a time management game that was first released in 2009. It is the fifth instalment in the Delicious instalment of games. The game takes place in Emily’s hometown, Snugford. Players get to manage different restaurants through the holiday season. In the game, players must serve the customers that enter the restaurant. Some customers order at the counter, while the others dine in the restaurant. Players must serve them before all the hearts above their heads disappear. If not hearts are left, the customer leaves the restaurant without paying. There is a daily monetary goal that must be reached in order for the player to move on to the next level. An entertainer for each location can be used to add more hearts to the customers.
After completing a level, players get the chance to improve the appearance of the restaurant. This can be done by using the money earned from the serving the customers. Some of the upgrades available for the restaurant include new chairs, curtains, decorative items, and others. As the players complete more levels, more food items become available. This time management game has an interesting storyline that takes players to five different locations and serve different kinds of food to customers.
