The Most Bizarre Candy Cane Flavors

Farewell, peppermint

It's no secret that we're obsessed with pickle-inspired recipes and products here at Tasting Table. However, even we have our limits: This holiday season has brought the world . . . dill pickle-flavored candy canes.

Though we can get behind the green color—very on brand for Christmas, of course—we're a little wary about this briny alternative to the classic peppermint stick. But maybe that's the point: Seattle-based retailer Archie McPhee recommends this option for someone who doesn't have a sweet tooth.

If you want to fall further down the savory candy cane rabbit hole, the company also sells bacon, gravy and even wasabi flavors. Because nothing says happy holidays like a spicy surprise in your stocking.
