Here’s a holiday candy mashup you probably never imagined your taste buds would encounter: macaroni-and-cheese-flavored candy canes.

Seattle company Archie McPhee, which previously brought candy lovers bacon-flavored candy canes, is selling the new confectionary curiosity on its website. It describes the 5 1/4-inch-tall, yellow-and-white-striped candy canes as having “cheesy flavoring” that tastes “like your childhood favorite – mac and cheese. It’s like comfort food-flavored comfort food!”

The Mac & Cheese Candy Canes have “instant mac & cheese flavor,” says the company, which sells them in a package of six candies for $5.95.

Instagram user @junkfoodmom tried the Mac & Cheese candy canes and said the candy “isn’t bad! Smells like cheese and tastes like Mac n cheese but the sweetness overpowers the flavor eventually so it’s doable.”

Apparently, some early shoppers got the candy canes at the bargain price of $4.95.

The candy is just one among an omnibus of oddities available on the Archie McPhee site, where the purveyor touts that for more than three decades it “has been bringing strange and amazing things to the world. We design and manufacture the kinds of impractical items that make life better.”

If you like unusual food mashups, you will literally be like a kid in a candy store on the website. There you will also find clam-flavored “Clamdy Canes,” dill pickle-flavored candy canes and rotisserie chicken-flavored candy canes. For kids who have been naughty and not nice, try smoky cinnamon-flavored “Krampus Candy Canes” – named after “the anti-Santa Claus of the alpine Germanic tradition,” the site says.

Peppermint, anyone?
