Mac N' Cheese Candy Canes Are Confusing Everyone

We love mac n' cheese and we love candy canes... But together... WTF?

Yes, they're really real.

 

A Seattle company known for joke items, Archie McPhee, is setting the internet on fire with their latest abomination: mac n' cheese-flavored candy canes.

The yellowish candies with white stripes are cane-shaped, sure, but could they ever bring you christmas cheer? According to the Archie McPhee product listing, "These candy canes taste like your childhood favorite — mac and cheese. It’s like comfort food-flavored comfort food!"

 

We're skeptical. Mashups are tricky to get just right, and this one does not seem like a match made in heaven. Still, the company has an explanation for the idea: "Macaroni and cheese has become a holiday family tradition in many parts of the country, so why not let our holiday candy reflect that?"

 

We're not the only ones shocked by this freaky product, of course. Let's take a trip to Twitter to see what the masses have to say...

 

 

Now for a plot twist. If you think the mac n' cheese candy canes sound gross, buckle up buttercup. The company has another flavor that'll curl your eyelashes: clam. Yes, the bottom-feeder. Clamdy Canes are available for sale at the same price and feature that classic grey and white swirl. Truly vomitous. How do you even advertise such an atrocity? Well...

 

"We all celebrate holidays in our own way and if your holiday tastes like the sea, this is for you. Add a little sand for extra clam realness. If anyone complains, just tell them to clam up."

 

If you decide all these crazy candy canes are the treats for you, go to the Archie McPhee website, linked above and here. Other flavor options include bacon, pickle, rotisserie chicken, and coal. The candy canes cost $5.95 for a box of six canes (5-1/4" tall). Please enjoy your "Instant mac & cheese flavor" with a side of shame. You can only get one box per order because demand is so high! SMH. 

 

If you buy the clam flavor you should probably see a therapist.

They also have Bah Humbug! candy canes which are white and taste like the lack of Christmas spirit as they are flavorless. They probably taste better than the macaroni and cheese ones though.

I dunno, Mac & Cheese candy canes don't sound that bad to me. Then again... It'd only be a curious novelty for me. Last year, don't know what brand they were, but I had an awesome licorice flavored candy cane, so... Much as I don't like the Holiday Invasion, unusual candy canes are something I find amusing.

Archie McPhee is a Seattle Institution that has always provided customers with the oddest of the odd. It’s worth looking at the catalog or swing by if you’re in the Wallingford neighborhood.
They also have Clam, pickle, roast chicken, and a few other flavors. I’ll be putting them out for the holidays at work.
