We’re used to red and white stripes and the classic peppermint flavor when it comes to candy canes, but there are plenty of other flavors out there. Some of them sound delicious—like Oreo candy canes—but others are a little more unique.
Many of these “deluxe” candy canes are made and sold by Archie McPhee, a retailer that prides itself on selling weird products. They’ve got an entire section of their website devoted to "bad candy," featuring hits like bacon gumballs, fried chicken candy, and of course, pizza candy canes (more on those in a minute). But Archie McPhee isn't the only player in creative candy canes as you'll see below. Compared to some of these unique candy cane flavors, peppermint seems almost boring.
If you want to change up your holiday treats, bringing a few of these flavors along will definitely get your friends and family talking. Right now, we’re just happy to load up on the dozens of new pumpkin products hitting grocery stores every day while looking forward to the return of classic holiday candy.
