When you think of Christmas candy, you're inclined to think of chocolate or peppermint - especially with the iconic red and white candy cane. This year a new flavor is coming to town: pickle candy canes.
Yes - forget peppermint or blueberry or even wintergreen. We're going straight for the savory with pickle candy canes. They're on Amazon for just $7.
The product description for the Fancy Pickle flavored Candy Canes includes the statement that "Christmas can be a difficult time for someone who isn't that into sweets." Their solution? The dill tang of Pickle Candy Canes.
"Not only do they have an elegant green color that will go well with your regular candy canes they also present a clear flavor alternative."
Did you catch that? Not only do they taste good, they'll match the color of your peppermint ones, too! But - we're gonna bet you shouldn't mix and match those.
And don't forget the box that comes decorated with the 'Santa Pickle' on the front!
The candy is a #1 best seller on Amazon and has 163 reviews with an average of 3 stars. CLICK HERE for more.
OK - but let's not pick on the pickle. After all, there are some truly bizarre flavors of candy canes this year. There's bacon candy canes, Sriracha candy canes, gravy candy canes (for when you truly need more gravy), and Wasabi candy canes.
We'll admit - some of these flavors pique our interest. What about you?
