Nothing hits the spot like the scents and tastes of the holiday season. Gingerbread, hot chocolate, pumpkin spice… mac and cheese candy canes?!
Apparently, peppermint candy canes are a little too boring for Archie McPhee, a candy company in Seattle. This year, they have two new flavors that are certain to put a spin on your existing holiday traditions: Mac & Cheese Candy Canes and Clamdy Canes (which — you guessed it — taste like clam… I guess you could crumble them into soup or something?).
We have so many questions. The first is obviously: Why? The second is: Are they any good? Are they, God forbid, sweet? Or are they a savory cane?
According to the website, they’re “like comfort food-flavored comfort food,” but that doesn’t necessarily answer our questions, and the ingredients aren’t listed, so the canes’ secrets remains a mystery.
All we know is that each cane is 5-1/4 inches tall, and the mac and cheese one features yellow and white stripes and is “instant mac and cheese”-flavored. De-lish!
If macaroni and cheese isn’t quite your thing, you’re in luck. Archie McPhee also sells such tasty flavors as bacon, pickle, rotisserie chicken and the aforementioned clam.
You can also get coal candy canes, Krampus candy canes and plain white “Bah, Humbug!” candy canes, for the Grinches and Scrooges in your life.
I don’t know if we’ll be venturing from the plain red-and-white peppermint candy canes we know and love this year, but hey, at least we know there’s an alternative out there. Just when you thought 2018 couldn’t get any weirder…
