Classic peppermint isn't interesting enough for some candy cane fans. Archie McPhee has released candy canes that taste like pickles, bacon, and wasabi, and this holiday season, adventurous eaters will have the chance to sample their mac and cheese flavor.

As Delish reports, Archie McPhee, a novelty store based in Seattle, now sells candy canes that taste like the savory comfort food. "Macaroni and Cheese Candy Canes are a particular favorite of picky eaters," the store writes in the product description. "Macaroni and cheese has become a holiday family tradition in many parts of the country, so why not let our holiday candy reflect that?"

The 5.25-inch candies are striped white and instant-cheese-powder-yellow. They come in boxes of six canes, with each box costing $5.95.

If you're looking to stock up on unusual stocking-stuffers ahead of the holidays, Archie McPhee sells a wide variety of off-color candies. They even have seasonally appropriate candy canes for the friends on your naughty lists, with themes like Krampus, coal, and bah, humbug.

In anticipation of the holiday season, many children and adults get to unwrap mini presents each of the 24 days leading up to Christmas day, during what's known as Advent. Though Advent itself dates back to the 4th century, the version we know today, complete with the chocolate-filled calendars, was popularized in the early 1900s. And apparently it's no longer just for humans, because Fancy Feast is letting your feline roommate in on the fun with this unique cat food Advent calendar, now available at Chewy for $23.

For the 24 days leading up to Christmas, your cat will get to enjoy a variety of different wet foods, including favorites like grilled salmon, chicken, and more. There is even a unique ornament included with each calendar featuring a cat in the shape of a heart that can go right onto your tree. (Also, don't be surprised to find your actual cat making its way into the middle of your tree; they're known climbers.)

Now while you enjoy your Advent calendars from brands like LEGO, Funko, and more, your cat will be able to join in on the fun as well. To learn more about Fancy Feast's Feastivites Advent Calendar, head on over to Chewy.
