Hamdy Canes, ham-flavored candy canes for the holidays

Oh boy, here we go. Archie McPhee has just announced their 2019 candy cane flavors. The star of this year's line-up are the ham-flavored ones, which are aptly called Hamdy Canes.

When the holidays come around, that can only mean one thing: ham! As much ham as you can eat! We think ham flavor is going to be the pumpkin spice of Christmas. Eventually, you’ll be able to get a ham latté. To get the ball rolling, we’ve created Hamdy Canes! You’ll get six ham-flavored candy canes in a box illustrated with a personified ham with a cane. It will cure what ails you. We could make all kinds of hammy jokes, but we’ll stick with the meat of the product. Each candy cane is 5-1/4" tall with pink and white stripes.

Right now you can get a box of six of them for $6, you sicko.

While you're there, pick up boxes of the runners-up too: Kale Candy Canes and Pizza Candy Canes. (I know what I'm secretly gifting in this year's Yankee Swap!) Read the rest

Steakhouse chain puts a meat and booze ice cream flavor on its menu

Because they can, that's why (and because it's National Ice Cream Month, and because, marketing.)

For a limited time, LongHorn Steakhouse is serving steak and bourbon-flavored ice cream -- complete with swirls of jerky, steak sprinkles, char seasoning, and a Jim Beam caramel sauce -- in its participating restaurant locations nationwide.

This boozy, meat-filled ice cream is also available in to-go pints.

My 14-year-old thinks it might be the most "Ron Swanson" thing ever, and I don't think she's wrong.

Thanks, Josh A. Cagan! Read the rest
