Gravy-Flavored Candy Canes Are Here To Ruin Your Thanksgiving

There are all sorts of holiday things that just belong together.

You know, like turkey and stuffing, sleigh riding and hot cocoa, Santa and presents and even glitter paired with hipster beards.

Candy canes and gravy, on the other hand, are not one of these perfect combinations.

Unfortunately, this hasn’t stopped some people from trying to ruin holiday candy by making this a thing anyway.

I mean seriously, is nothing sacred these days?

If the thought of finding a gravy-flavored candy cane in your Christmas stocking makes you say, “Ho-ho-ho..ld the fuck up,” you’re not alone.

I’d like to consider myself an adventurous eater who has a pretty open mind when it comes to trying new foods.

But this culinary crime against candy canes definitely crosses the line for me.

Now if you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering who’s responsible for this weird AF hybrid food.

Apparently, Archie McPhee is the mastermind behind these unconventional candy canes and they’re selling these brown and white striped snacks in boxes of six for $6.50.

Because let’s be real, forcing one meat-flavored candy cane down your throat on Thanksgiving simply isn’t torturous enough.

If the taste of sugary gravy makes you gag, don’t worry.

It turns out Archie McPhee has a whole collection of candy cane flavors no one ever asked for including pickle candy canes and bacon candy canes.

Plus, they even have candy canes smothered in spicy flavors like wasabi and sriracha!

A lot of people have already been spotting these bad boys in stores and uploading snapshots of these strange candy canes onto Twitter.

When it comes to swapping out the classic peppermint candy canes for some gravy-infused sticks, the general consensus on Twitter seems to a hard “no” at the moment.

However, there are a few brave souls who took one for the team and tried these candy canes in order to confirm our suspicions on what these things actually taste like.

Apparently, the flavor is just as bad as it sounds because one Twitter user reported these gravy-flavored candy canes taste like “butt,”

So yeah, I think it’s safe assume most people would rather find a lump of coal under the Christmas tree than a box of these cringe-worthy candy canes.
