Pizza-flavored Candy Canes Are Here To Help You Celebrate The Holidays

Pizza-flavored Candy Canes Are Here To Help You Celebrate The Holidays
Posted at 9:08 PM, Sep 14, 2019

It’s 2019 and there’s license to shake up your holiday traditions — and that extends to the flavor of your candy canes.

Archie McPhee, a retailer that specializes in “strange and amazing things” is selling pizza-flavored candy canes in packs of six. The red-and-yellow treats are the standard candy cane shape and size, but their flavor is more pepperoni than peppermint.

The McPhee website says they are “not baked in a wood fire oven” and each cane is like “a little slice of Italian-spiced heaven.” They do sound strange, but I can’t wait to try them out.

The candy canes are striped with yellow and red:

A pack of the pizza candy canes sells for $6 on the website.

The unusual flavor of the beloved holiday candy isn’t the only one Archie McPhee has available. You can also get bacon candy canes and kale candy canes!

Like the pizza candy canes, the “Garden Fresh” Kale Candy Canes are available for $6. They look appetizing, but we’d rather try the dill-flavored pickle candy canes!

McPhee also has such oddities as a Mac & Cheese Candy Cane set and Hamdy Canes — which taste like slices of ham.

The flavored candy canes are in keeping with the Archie McPhee motto, “We make weird.” The brand offers a bunch of novelty gift items, such as these finger hands:

Each pair is only $3.95 and will bring you lots of … attention at the office. They’re great for giving sarcastic applause or bothering the person in the neighboring cubicle.

The fun stuff we’re finding on the Archie McPhee website makes us want to take a trip to Seattle, Washington, where the brick-and-mortar store has been open for business since 1983.

The store carries a wacky selection of candy, costumes, gifts and more. So fun!

It even has a section devoted to a popular classic toy. The Rubber Chicken Museum had its grand opening celebration last year, as seen in this video on Archie McPhee’s YouTube page:

Archie McPhee claims to have the world’s largest and smallest rubber chickens there.
