MAC AND CHEESE CANDY CANES CAUSE SOCIAL MEDIA OUTRAGE

posted by Ken Webster jr - 

Nothing upsets people more than things they see on the Internet that don't make sense.  Today, besides being upset about the Kavanaugh hearing, people are outraged and mac and chese flavored candy canes.

A Seattle-based novelty retailer called Archie McPhee is selling a 6-piece box set of mac and cheese candy canes online for $5.95.  Seems simple enough - it's an unusual flavor and they sell gimmicky candy items to compete with the bigger companies.

They claim the candy is, "a particular favorite of picky eaters” and that it will “taste like your childhood favorite — mac and cheese."

“It’s like comfort food-flavored comfort food!” Archie McPhee said.

Dozens of people on Twitter didn't like the idea... by which I mean, they hated it.

One user said, "Okay I love mac and cheese as much as the next guy but NO!!! Keep it to only peppermint and cherry candy canes only!"

Another complained, "I think I just threw up a little... I love mac and cheese and I like candy canes, but can you imagine the horror?"

Perhaps the funniest response was, "Is Santa mad at us? Mac and Cheese candy canes sound like something Jack Frost made while on brown acid.”

Pretty funny!  But, even still, calm down people.  It's just candy.

Archie McPhee is at it again giving us crazy Candy Cane flavors. Last year I tried their Rotisserie Chicken flavor and .. it was an experience. 😖 ( It’s available this year too if you’re feeling brave ). This year they have 2 new varieties .. here’s one of them- Mac & Cheese flavored Candy Canes. 🧀 This one isn’t bad! Smells like cheese and tastes like Mac n cheese but the sweetness overpowers the flavor eventually so it’s doable. 👍🏻 I might not be so brave when I try the next one.. 🤐. PURCHASED ONLINE. @archiemcphee #archiemcphee #archiemcpheecandycanes #archiemcpheemacandcheesecandycanes #macandcheese #macandcheesecandycanes #accoutrements #extracheesy #cheese #cheesy #cheesycandy #junkfood
