Some people like their bacon black and crispy. Others like it a gently seared pinkish brown. Well, we’re here to tell you that there’s a brand new way to enjoy your favorite piggy treat: In red and white stripes. And you don’t chew it, you lick it. That’s right, folks. We’re talking about bacon-flavored candy canes, and given that this year’s bacon craze doesn’t seem anywhere close to dying down, we’re betting that these babies are going to be selling hot and fast this holiday season. Move over mint, pork is so 2011.

Or maybe you’re in the mood for something chocolatey as the holidays roll around but can’t handle another dull chocolate-dipped cherry? Then check out these chocolate-dipped jalapeno peppers, which’ll have you working up a sweat no matter how cold it might get outside. Choose from dark, milk, or white chocolate to complement the peppers’ bright colors and spicy heat. They promise to warm up even the coolest winter night.
