Whether you love them or hate them, candy canes are a tradition around the holidays: hang them on the tree, stir them in hot chocolate, crunch them over cookies. But peppermint is so last year. Improve upon this tradition with one of these new exciting tastes in town.

Here are 10 usual candy can flavors you can start nibbling on now.

Gravy

They taste like they were just poured out of Grandma’s gravy boat. They might not make your breath smell minty-fresh, but you’ll probably enjoy them a lot more.

Pickle

Be careful before biting into these candy canes. If you’re expecting the green color to mean spearmint or apple, you’ll be in for a savory surprise. These pickle candy canes taste like the real dill.
