Odd foods are really having a moment right now. With food tourism becoming an increasingly popular business, it seems everyone is constantly looking for the latest or at least greatest trendy meal. However, as the holiday season draws closer, a perennial favorite — the candy cane — is garnering a lot of attention thanks to some, um, strange combinations.
Make no mistake: Some newer flavors don’t sound too bad. For instance, last year, Oreo’s new cookies and cream candy can flavor was a hit. And while we haven’t seen any approachable new flavors surface quite yet this year (it is September, after all), Archie McPhee has released three flavors that are questionable at best: pizza, ham and kale.
But fear not, sweet friends. If you don’t want to try them, you don’t have to. We’ve rounded up some of the craziest candy cane combinations out there and ranked them from least to most offensive. So sit back, relax, read, gag and/or enjoy!
