We are big fans of classic peppermint candy canes and even warmed up to the idea of Sriracha candy canes a few Christmases ago. Now, there is a new sweet treat aiming to get Santa's attention: mac and cheese candy canes.
While the combination of a savory cheesy pasta dish and candy sounds insane to some, the truth is mac and cheese candy canes have garnered quite a following on social media.
Where Can I Find Mac and Cheese Candy Canes?
Ok who wants to try mac and cheese candy canes? @yikesitskyla? #Repost @junkfoodmom • • • • • Archie McPhee is at it again giving us crazy Candy Cane flavors. Last year I tried their Rotisserie Chicken flavor and .. it was an experience. ? ( It’s available this year too if you’re feeling brave ). This year they have 2 new varieties .. here’s one of them- Mac & Cheese flavored Candy Canes. ? This one isn’t bad! Smells like cheese and tastes like Mac n cheese but the sweetness overpowers the flavor eventually so it’s doable. ?? I might not be so brave when I try the next one.. ?. PURCHASED ONLINE. @archiemcphee #archiemcphee #archiemcpheecandycanes #archiemcpheemacandcheesecandycanes #macandcheese #macandcheesecandycanes #accoutrements #extracheesy #cheese #cheesy #cheesycandy #junkfood
