Savory candy canes might seem like an oxymoron, or more like something a mad culinary scientist would dream up, but I'm here to tell you they are real. The Seattle-based retailer Archie McPhee, the same folks behind cheeky snack products like bacon-flavored jelly beans and absinthe gumballs, have now given the world pickle candy canes. Yes, you read that correctly.

A candy cane that tastes like dill might sound outrageous, but it could be the perfect stocking stuffer for someone who prefers savory treats. Or hey, perhaps that someone just really loves pickles! Decorated with the "friendly image" of Santa Pickle, the pickle candy cane comes in green and white and looks a lot like the mint variety, should any Christmas pranks be in store for you this year. According to reviews on the candy cane's Amazon page, though, there is only a "tiny hint" of pickle flavoring.

Looking for something more intensely flavored? Archie McPhee also offers other savory candy cane varieties such as wasabi ("they are spicy," according to one review), bacon, and gravy.

Whether it's a gag-gift, or a sincere Christmas present, there's no denying that these candy canes would be a memorable gift. You can purchase these odd candies on both Amazon and over at Archie McPhee's official website.
