For those who don’t like sweets, the holidays can be a tough time. From gingerbread cookies to chocolate everything, Christmas treats are everywhere. So what’s a non-dessert lover to do? One solution: pickle candy canes.
That’s right, the official candy of Christmas and your favorite tangy snack have joined forces to create a unique holiday treat.
Sold on Amazon for a bargain price of $8.90, reviewers seem to agree that the pickle flavor is subtle at best. That might be a bit disappointing for devoted pickle lovers, but it’s probably for the best. More than likely, the world isn’t ready for its go-to stocking stuffer to taste as if it came straight out of a pickle jar.
Still, we’re putting these unique treats on our Christmas list, if for nothing more than the fact that they make great gag gifts. Speaking of, the maker of these candy canes also sells them in bacon, wasabi, and gravy varieties. Although, fair warning: Don’t be surprised if you get coal in next year’s Christmas stocking if you gift someone gravy-flavored candy canes.
