Last year, Jimmy Dean decided to make Christmas gifts smell like breakfast with their new sausage-scented wrapping paper. This year, they've brought it back due to high demand, but also added their meaty aroma to another holiday staple: candy canes.
The iconic peppermint candies won't have the usual flavors of mint and sugar, but will instead taste like a Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage. With intriguing candy cane flavors ranging from mac and cheese to clam being the rage last year, it was only a matter of time before another holiday gimmick flavor like this one came along.
UPDATE: Foodbeast recently had the chance to try the sausage candy canes for ourselves. It's still a sweet candy cane, with a strong maple flavor with hints of bacon. If maple bacon candy canes are up your alley, the flavors on this are pretty similar.
To obtain your own set of three candy canes, you have to participate in something called the Jimmy Dean Recipe Gift Exchange. If you cook a recipe using Jimmy Dean sausage and upload it to their website, you can select the sausage-flavored candy canes as a thank you gift in return.
For those looking for something a little less out-of-the-box, there is last year's viral sausage-scented wrapping paper, a sweet and savory lip balm, and cowboy slipper boots also available.
