This year, our Elf on the Shelf brought the kids some pickle-flavored candy canes! The Elf’s name is Pickles, which is why we sometimes get some pickle-themed gifts!
You can find this product on Amazon.com, and the description reads:
You’ll get six 5-1/4″ (13.3 cm) tall, pickle-flavored canes in each box, beautifully decorated with the friendly image of Santa Pickle. Shrink wrapped.
The kids were excited to dig in! Since there are 6 candy canes, we each tried some and also shared some with friends.
I thought the candy canes would have a pickle flavor and taste salty.
The way I would describe these are sweet, with a hint of pickle flavor. It doesn’t have any saltiness to it, and very little flavor.
My kids tried them, two of their friends tried them, and I tried them. The kids thought they were gross. I was anticipating that the candy canes would be salty, so I was disappointed.
The candy canes aren’t cheap, and cost about $15 right before Christmas. I think you might be able to get them a little cheaper if you buy them earlier, and there are plenty of other interesting flavors of candy canes, like gravy, wasabi, and bacon. Or if you are into pickles, there are other pickle candies, mints, band-aids, and other cool novelty items.
While these didn’t taste particularly good, it makes for a fun gift or gag gift!
Im kind of disappointed they aren’t salty either!! I LOVE pickles but more of a dill pickle, so I guess I would’ve expected that flavor from these too! I guess I’ll have to stick to my pickle chips and actual pickles 😉
They certainly are thinking of interesting flavors of candy canes. I am not sure if my kids would try this, but I would give it a shot.
Strange that they weren’t salty. I am not a huge pickle fan so I don’t think I would like them but I guess some would!
While I like pickles I am not sure about this candy. I like my candy canes to be minty.
Seems like an interesting flavor for candy canes. I don’t know if I’d be able to try them or not. I do love pickles though, so maybe. I bet my kids would love to try these though.
There’s a balance in taste between the peppermint and the pickle which makes it a joy to eat. I highly recommend this one too.
I’ve had pickle soup, but not pickle candy canes. I guess I’ll skip them since they didn’t seem to be salty enough.
This seems like a really great and interesting flavor. I would love to try this!
I love pickles in my macaroni salad. I will have to give those pickle candy canes a try.
I love pickles in a sandwhich or relishing a hotdog. I have to give these pickle candy canes a try
This is definitely not my kind of candy but my kids might like it!
I would have been disappointed too if it didn’t have a strong dill pickle flavor. I’ll have to check out the other items and I’ll be sure to read the reviews so I’m not disappointed.
My sister has something similar as a gag gift in our Christmas bags last year. I think I might grab these for my gag gift this year.
