Well, here's an idea that's certainly ahead of its time: Clam flavored candy canes!

What kind wouldn't like the taste of clams on Christmas mornings!

Yes, they are 100% real - they're Clamdy Canes!

According to the website peddling the product, "you’ll wonder how Christmas existed without Clamdy Canes."

Yes, I wonder.

How's this for a sales line: "We all celebrate holidays in our own way and if your holiday tastes like the sea, this is for you."  Wow, I'm already smelling the bay on a warm evening after a quick rainstorm - this sounds even better!

In its sales pitch the website urges you to "Add a little sand for extra clam realness." OOH! I can taste the grittiness already!

It actually seems like a good gag gift, especially since it's only $6.50 for  a box. That's $6.50 plus shipping - I didn't click and see how much shipping was because I was afraid I'd accidentally order it....

For all your clam-loving friends!
