just. yes.

there are good ideas and then there are great ideas—

these are clearly in the latter category.

“Renowned for its indulgent blend of fresh, premium Irish dairy cream, the finest spirits, aged Irish whiskey and a unique chocolate blend, the iconic Bailey’s Original Irish Cream flavor profile pairs magically with rich, semi-sweet chocolate to create this decadent treat,” a  press release states. “Eat them by the handful on-the-go or mix into your favorite baked good recipe, these chips deliver on the flavor and smell of Bailey’s.”

 Online novelty retailer Archie McPhee, with a fascination for innovative ways so reinvent the candy cane, has released their unique Clamdy Canes, a set of six clam-flavored candy canes. This flavor is perfect those who prefer to spend their winters on the beach in warmer climes.

“From the personified clam on the package to the clam taste, you’ll wonder how Christmas existed without Clamdy Canes. They’re a candy clamity! We all celebrate holidays in our own way and if your holiday tastes like the sea, this is for you. Add a little sand for extra clam realness. If anyone complains, just tell them to clam up.”

Archie McPhee also carries a comforting set of Mac and Cheese Candy Canes, which are perfect for those who prefer their holidays snuggling up with the family near a warm fire on a cold winter’s day.

“Macaroni and Cheese Candy Canes are a particular favorite of picky eaters. These candy canes taste like your childhood favorite — mac and cheese. It’s like comfort food-flavored comfort food!”

 

“if life were predictable it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.”

my suggestion is to try them all to make it a fair contest

and decide for yourself.

MACKINAC ISLAND

Covering 3.8 square miles, Mackinac Island is located in Lake Huron at the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac, between Michigan’s Lower and Upper Peninsula. It is only accessible by ferry or plane. • The island was home to Native American settlements before European exploration began in the 1600s.

It also was a key site for the Great Lakes Fur Trade and was home to Fort Mackinac, built by the British during the American Revolutionary War. It was the scene of two battles during the War of 1812. In the late 19th century, the island became a popular tourist destination and summer colony, and that popularity gets stronger by the summer.

The entire island is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Battle sites, historic buildings, the fort, and dozens of additional diversions, including Original Murdick’s Fudge, entertain visitors.

Because automobiles were banned from the village in 1898, and from the park in 1901, on-island transit is by foot, horse, carriage and bicycle.
