You Can Now Buy Mac And Cheese-Flavored Candy Canes

Would you try this holiday treat?

The holidays are right around the corner, which means it’s almost time for winter treats, like Advent calendars, hot cocoa and candy canes. Typically, candy canes are peppermint-flavored, but these days, a more bizarre option is available: instant mac and cheese-flavored candy canes.

Mac and cheese-flavored candy canes are sold by Seattle-based novelty store Archie McPhee, and they’re striped yellow and white instead of the traditional red and white. You can snag a set of six for $6.50.

These unique candies certainly aren’t for everyone, but they might hit the spot for true mac and cheese fanatics.

“Macaroni and Cheese Candy Canes are a particular favorite of picky eaters,” reads the product description. “It’s like comfort food-flavored comfort food! Macaroni and cheese has become a holiday family tradition in many parts of the country, so why not let our holiday candy reflect that?”

I can see these candy canes being a hit with the preschool set, and they would also make for an interesting stocking stuffer. Although the yellow color might tip someone off that it won’t taste like a traditional candy cane, they probably won’t guess that they’re about to taste a bowl of mac and cheese.

Instagrammer @junkfoodmom gave the wacky canes a try, and she said they “weren’t bad.” She noted in her caption that she has also tried Archie McPhee’s rotisserie chicken flavor.

The company’s other out-there candy cane flavors include bacon, pickle, Bah, Humbug! (which they claim is flavorless as well as colorless) and Clamdy (clam-flavored).

In recent years, they have also added pizza-flavored candy canes and canes that taste like ketchup, for any mega-fans of the tomato-based condiment.

If candy canes just aren’t your thing, Archie McPhee also offers other adventurous-sounding candy, such as kale candy, lobster candy and vegetable candy.

Those all certainly sound interesting! Would you try out any of these crazy candies?
