There’s a new gross candy cane variety in town, and it’s giving those mac and cheese-flavored holiday treats a run for their money, which is an impressive feat!

Archie McPhee’s, the same company behind those mac and cheese candy canes, has potentially outdone itself with its latest release – rotisserie chicken candy canes. Per the company website, these candies come in a set of six and share a color scheme and flavor profile with a traditional rotisserie chicken. Yes, you read that right.

The yellow and brown-stripped sugar sticks, which are designed to look like “crispy chicken skin” have the “same savory flavor” one would expect to find when biting into a nice, juicy chicken, “with sweet mixed in.” The description boasts, “Forget the turkey, start a new Christmas tradition [with] Rotisserie Chicken Candy Canes!”

In a playful nod to the bizarre flavor, the Washington state-based candy company also encourages people to give the unique candy canes a shot before counting them out completely, writing, “You’ll wanna try these, unless you’re a chicken.”

And though it would be logical to assume that a candy cane created to taste like chicken would be wildly unpopular, the opposite appears to be true. In fact, a rule on the Archie McPhee’s website states, “Because of their extreme popularity, we are limiting Rotisserie Chicken Candy Canes to a maximum of five per customer.”

What’s more? If you’re looking for something to go with the chicken and mac and cheese-flavored candy canes, Archie McPhee’s has you covered. The weird candy producer also makes candy canes that taste like clams, (“Clammy Canes”) bacon, pickles, coal and fire and brimstone.
