Last year, Jimmy Dean decided to make Christmas gifts smell like breakfast with their new sausage-scented wrapping paper. This year, they’ve brought it back due to high demand, but also added their meaty aroma to another holiday staple: candy canes.
Yes. Sausage candy canes.
The iconic peppermint candies won’t have the usual flavors of mint and sugar, but will instead taste like a Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage and maple syrup. With candy cane flavors like mac and cheese, pickle and clam being the rage last year, it was only a matter of time before another holiday flavor like this one came along.
To obtain your own set of three candy canes, you have to participate in the Jimmy Dean Recipe Gift Exchange. If you cook a recipe using Jimmy Dean sausage and upload it to their website, you can select a sausage-themed gift. In addition to the sausage candy canes, there is also last year’s viral sausage-scented wrapping paper, sausage and maple lip balm, cowboy slipper boots, a Jimmy Dean ornament and socks.
