Interested in a little holiday prank? Check out these Wasabi and Gravy flavored candy canes.

Both come in a pack of six 5-1/4″ tall candy canes and they actually taste like gravy and wasabi, so you can pretty much have a ball dropping them in the middle of your candy cane stash and let the fun begin. Then again, you could crush the gravy version and sprinkle over mashed potatoes. Mmmm, MMMM!

See the gravy version after the break…

Vodka makers have recently been going off on a “let’s see if this will sell” tangent that resulted in a variety of batsh*t flavors… this example is no different, and will certainly be considered more crazy than creative. Polish vodka brand Wyborowa just released this Wasabi vodka as part of their “Oddka” line that also includes Apple Pie and Fresh Cut Grass. The ninja-inspired flavor is described as “fiery” and is designed to creep up on your unassuming taste buds.

The 750ml Oddka vodka flavors are currently available for $15 in select states, and will be distributed globally by Spring 2013.

Apparently, this is an ad for dishwashing liquid, so there isn’t any wasabi muffin mix on the shelf of your local Asian market or anything. But I’m sure that wasabi muffins have been done by some crazy person in the past. Start your morning off with a bang!
