We're feeling bold this year and decided to give these crazy flavors a go in the spirit of the holiday season. Scroll below and join us on our brave quest into new and uncharted candy cane territory.


1. Bacon Candy Canes

It was only a matter of time before bacon worked its way into the candy world. Hey, we ain't complaining. We do love our bacon.

2. Sriracha Candy Canes

Spicy is not typically an adjective we like to use to describe our candy, but we're willing to give it a shot because Sriracha. is. life.

3. Smokey Cinnamon Candy Canes

Because bold is the theme of the day, we figured a sharp and smokey flavor was necessary to add to the list. We're not sure how a smokey variation of cinnamon will taste, but it sounds good to us.

4. Crayola Candy Canes

Okay, so these don't actually taste like crayons (for a good reason) but they do melt in your mouth and color it like one!

7. Dr. Pepper, Orange Crush and A&W Candy Canes

These pack a major flavor punch and taste exactly like each soda. They aren't exactly a healthy alternative to the fountain drink, but that's never stopped us before. ????

8. Wasabi Candy Canes

Translation: this candy cane tastes like a plant, but in the best way possible. As unlikely as the flavor is for a piece of candy, it doesn't change the fact that it's a yummy one.
