Nintendo Super Mario Candy Canes
I don't think anyone has ever looked at a candy cane and thought "you know what would make that more festive? Some Super Mario characters". They look like the kind of product that would either be found in CyberCandy or... in Poundland. In reality I picked these up at the Selfridges Food Hall for £1.99 for ten candy canes.
The box is not the most colourful I've ever seen but it does have lots of Super Mario characters emblazoned across all the sides. Each Candy Cane is decorated with Mario, Luigi and Toads on the wrapping. They are fruit flavoured which seems to be quite popular with candy canes, no peppermint for the kids of today!
My kids are crazy for Nintendo and Super Mario so these are a fun product. They are not very festive, (shouldn't Mario and Luigi be wearing Santa hats?) in fact there is no mention of Christmas on the box but I'll still be popping a few in their Christmas stockings!
