DALLAS (NEXSTAR) — This time of year, retailers toss out all sorts of strange holiday foods hoping consumers take the bait — which we normally do.
However, some things are just too strange to buy. Here are of few of the weirdest Christmas-themed treats we’ve seen available for purchase:
Mint Vanilla Milk
This was found at a Target store: mint-vanilla flavored 1% milk.
Can you imagine pouring this into your next bowl of Fruit Loops? Certainly, it’s not designed for that, but geez — we can picture some nasty combinations.
Now dipping an Oreo cookie into this? We’d be down.
Kale Flavored Candy Canes
The product description reads, “No more pesky holiday flavors to worry about, just the bitter grassiness of your favorite vegetable. Talk about a superfood.”
This is not a joke. These guys are available to buy online for a listed prize of $10. When we checked they were on sale for just $3.60, which doesn’t really surprise us.
You can find these available on Oldies.com.
Mac & Cheese Flavored Candy Canes
The product description poses a simple question: “have you ever considered taking this cheesy carb affection into the world of candy?”
While many may agree that a bowl of mac and cheese can make one feel “all will be right with the world,” its unclear how well comfort food translates to candy form.
These unique treats are available at CandyFavorites.com for roughly $10.
Candy Cane and Christmas Mint Sodas
If you’ve ever been to a Rocket Fizz store, you’ve seen some pretty strange offerings, and their holiday beverages are no exception.
The candy and drink novelty store offers “Candy Cane Train” holiday soda and Christmas mint soda.
Which one would you try first?
White Chocolate Peppermint Flavored Pringles Potato Chips
While these seasonal chip offerings are still listed on Amazon, we’re pretty sure they’re no longer made or available.
This chip has been described as “a Pringle with a thin layer of toothpaste on it.” Doesn’t that sound delightful?
Here’s the listing on Amazon if you’re hoping it’s once again made available.
Sour Brite Reindeer Poop
While we’re sure they taste delightful, who wants their 9-year-old daughter asking dad if she can get a bag of reindeer droppings from the grocery store?
The fine folks at Trolli are apparently offering this seasonal delight at Walgreens and other stores.
The pieces of sour poop take the shape of the popular emoji of the same likeness.
