I like me a good prank. You know-- the harmless, slightly terrifying sort. But there are some jokes that just aren't funny (hint: they're secretly hilarious), especially when it comes to messing with one of my favorite holiday foods -- candy canes.
Yes, gravy and wasabi-flavored candy canes now exist. Sure it sounds like an innocent idea and all, but these candies look like the one's we'd normally eat. In fact, the manufacturer encourages prankster antics by suggesting we "sneak one in with regular candy canes." Genius? Yep! (Just don't pull a fast one on me.)
If the idea of gravy and/or wasabi candy has you running for the hills, perhaps you can incorporate them into a sweet sushi or use 'em as a mashed potato topping. Maybe.
