J&D Foods, the Seattle-based company that brought you baconnaise, Sriracha popcorn and bacon soda, has just launched Sriracha candy canes for the Christmas season. And if you’re a bacon fan, there’s a new bacon deodorant, too.
“There’s a reason Santa comes down your chimney – he likes it hot!” writes J&D Foods on its website.
The candy canes look just like the usual ones with the red, green and white stripes, but these have the fiery kick of Sriracha. The company suggests crushing them up, then serving them over ice cream or using them as a holiday cocktail stirrer.
We’re thinking Sriracha fanatics will have no problem finding ways to eat them. But the company does warn against crushing the canes into powder and snorting it up your nose. Not exactly the first thing you think of when you see these, but apparently, the warning is for insurance purposes.
A box of 12 individually wrapped candy canes sells for $7.99. They are available at Cost Plus World Market, Urban Outfitters and ThinkGeek.com.
