Usually gimmick candy canes aren’t all that good. They come in a variety of flavors, usually based on other types of candy. My parents decorated their tree with Life Savers candy canes, and you know what? They’re pretty much Life Savers in candy cane form. The flavor is exactly the same and the composition of the candy cane is just like a Life Saver. Instead of trying to make the Life Saver flavor come out in that white candy cane type material, they just extruded Life Savers into a cane. Bravo, Life Savers.
Spree, Gobstopper, Now & Later, and even chocolate ones. If only they stuck to something similar to their original candies, methinks I would like them better. Alas.
