Well, folks. The makers of the mac and cheese candy canes are at it again! Archie McPhee, a Seattle-based store known for its novelty gifts, is also selling rotisserie chicken-flavored candy canes for all of your holiday pranking needs. Whether you’re stuffing stockings with these, attaching them to wrapped gifts or handing them out as party favors, your guests are sure to get a laugh.
