5 Bizarre Christmas Foods You Gotta Try, Maybe

This holiday season, don’t roast chestnuts on an open fire or sip eggnog from the comfort of your sleigh. Nope. Try these bizarre Christmas foods that will have you asking, Why am I doing this to my body?

White chocolate peppermint Pringles

Once you pop, you just can’t stop, says Pringles. But these festively flavored chips will probably give you pause. Forget BBQ or the classic sour cream & onion — Pringles celebrates the holiday season with these eyebrow-raising flavors: white chocolate peppermint, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon & sugar.

Dunkin’ Donuts turkey

Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the signature turkey roast. But this bird brined in Dunkin’ Donuts might just give you nightmares. This beast of an animal has been marinating overnight in bay leaves, water, cinnamon sticks and the not-so-secret ingredient: Dunkin’ Donuts. Dear Lord, in whose name we celebrate this season, what is that hairy bit on the end? *shudders*

Christmas dinner in a can

First we brought you the Christmas tree for lazy people, and now we’re back with Christmas dinner for couch potatoes. Why dirty pots, pans and turkey basters when you can get all your Christmas goodness in one convenient can? Hot Can¬†offers a turkey casserole as an easy self-heating meal. Now all you need is someone to feed you by hand.

Christmas tree soda

Tired of boring old soda? Not only is Jones Soda gluten-free and organic, but the company knows how to bring the Christmas cheer with wacky flavors like sugar plum, eggnog, Christmas tree and Christmas ham. Haven’t we all sat in front of a Christmas ham and wished it could be made into a fizzy, colorful beverage? No?

Bacon-flavored candy canes

Everything’s comin’ up bacon.¬† There are already bacon-flavored chips, bacon ice cream and bacon martinis, so what’s the next logical step? Why, bacon-flavored candy canes, of course. They’re perfect for those who like to celebrate the season with the taste of minty pig. Mmmmm, minty pig.
