Step aside wasabi canes! Your time is UP bacon-flavored, gravy-flavored, and pickle canes! From Archie McPhee comes the latest in holiday candy flavor mashups: Macaroni-and-cheese-flavored candy canes.
They describe the 5 1/4-inch-tall, yellow-and-white-striped candy canes as having “cheesy flavoring” that tastes “like your childhood favorite – mac and cheese. It’s like comfort food-flavored comfort food!”
The Mac & Cheese Candy Canes are sold in a package of six candies for $5.95.

Archie McPhee is at it again giving us crazy Candy Cane flavors. Last year I tried their Rotisserie Chicken flavor and .. it was an experience. 😖 ( It’s available this year too if you’re feeling brave ). This year they have 2 new varieties .. here’s one of them- Mac & Cheese flavored Candy Canes. 🧀 This one isn’t bad! Smells like cheese and tastes like Mac n cheese but the sweetness overpowers the flavor eventually so it’s doable. 👍🏻 I might not be so brave when I try the next one.. 🤐. PURCHASED ONLINE. @archiemcphee #archiemcphee #archiemcpheecandycanes #archiemcpheemacandcheesecandycanes #macandcheese #macandcheesecandycanes #accoutrements #extracheesy #cheese #cheesy #cheesycandy #junkfood

The candy is just one among an omnibus of oddities available on the Archie McPhee site, where the purveyor touts that for more than three decades it “has been bringing strange and amazing things to the world. We design and manufacture the kinds of impractical items that make life better.”
If you like unusual food mashups, you will literally be like a kid in a candy store on the website. There you will also find clam-flavored “Clamdy Canes,” and rotisserie chicken-flavored candy canes. For kids who have been naughty and not nice, try smoky cinnamon-flavored “Krampus Candy Canes” – named after “the anti-Santa Claus of the alpine Germanic tradition,” the site says.
