The country’s largest handmade candy cane manufacturer, Hammond’s Candies, has announced this coming holiday season’s much-anticipated limited edition flavor: the Naughty or Nice Cane. In addition to its 25 standard flavors, which include traditional peppermint, natural versions and even varieties with cream centers, Hammond’s introduces a limited edition holiday flavor each year. This year’s Naughty or Nice Canes each come with the same look – red with white and black pinstripes – but some are flavored a “nice” strawberry and some are flavored “naughty” black licorice. A festive hangtag informs snackers that they won’t know which mystery flavor they’ve received — and which of Santa’s lists they’ve made — until they start munching on the magical cane.
Naughty or Nice Canes, which come in packs of 48 units for $1.50 each, has a suggested retail of $2.49-$2.99. For a taste, stop by Booth C-1112C in the Las Vegas Gift Mart July 30th through August 3rd or Booth 3276 at the New York Now Gift Show August 20th through 23rd at the Javits Center.
