Bacon Candy Canes
Bacon enthusiasts, this one’s for you! You can find bacon-flavored candy canes on Amazon for the holidays. The box promises the smoky, savory flavor of a crispy piece of bacon—so we’re going to pick ’em up as a stocking stuffer.
Pickle Candy Canes
You can now enjoy the tangy taste of pickle candy canes. People who can’t get enough of pickle-flavored foods will get a kick out of finding this candy in their stocking. The pickle candy canes are kind of a big dill, so pucker up!
Froot Loops Candy Canes
Toucan Sam agrees that Froot Loops candy canes may be one of the best weird candy cane flavors out there. The brightly-colored canes not only taste just like the breakfast cereal; they also make simple Christmas tree ornaments.
Mac & Cheese Candy Canes
One of the best comfort foods ever is now available as a funky candy cane flavor. As stated on the Archie McPhee website, “Macaroni and cheese has become a holiday family tradition in many parts of the country, so why not let our holiday candy reflect that?” Guess we’ll have to give it a whirl…
Shiitake Mushroom Candy Canes
Shiitakes taste delicious in stir fry and soups. But…how do they taste as a candy cane? Archie McPhee says, “After all, we know Santa is a fungi with mushroom in his heart for holiday spirit.” The Christmas puns make us feel strangely fond of this flavor.
Hot Tamales Candy Canes
Ketchup Candy Canes
Everyone’s favorite tomato-flavored condiment obviously had to make this list. While we don’t have French fry-flavored candy canes to go with these, these ketchup-flavored candy canes are pretty great stocking stuffers on their own.
Pho Candy Canes
We can’t get enough of pho in the winter—but we definitely never thought this rich, herby soup would be part of this lineup of candy cane flavors. If you’re as curious about it as we are, pick up a box of these pho-flavored candy canes ASAP.
Ham Candy Canes
What’s bacon without ham? Have a full breakfast, candy cane-style, by adding these ham-flavored candy canes to the mix. Just make sure you don’t mix this pink and white striped candy with the more traditional flavors!
Clam Candy Canes
Here’s a Christmas treat for seafood lovers: clam-flavored candy canes. Or should we say, clamdy canes? The unique flavor is advertised as “one shell of a candy,” but we’re relieved it only comes six to a box.
