A unique candy company based in Austin, Texas has developed a new lollipop flavor that may have some consumers piqued in interest or quivering in disgust — breast milk.
According to Lollyphile’s website, numerous mothers shared their breast milk with the company’s “flavor specialists,” until they were able to duplicate the flavor in a candy.
But the product description warns: Breast Milk Lollipops “won’t bring back childhood memory; they’ll bring up animal instinct. Quite possibly the most inherently satisfying flavor of all time.”
“I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older, but it seems like all of my friends are having babies these days,” Jason Darling, the owner of Lollyphile, said in a statement, My Fox New York reports. “Sure, the kids are all crazy cute, but what slowly dawned on me was that my friends were actually producing milk so delicious it could turn a screaming, furious child into a docile, contented one. I knew I had to capture that flavor.”
Lollyphile, made famous for its absinthe confections, maintains that the lollipops do not contain any actual breast milk, and that they are strictly vegan.
Four breast milk lollipops will cost you $10. A case of 36 lollipops goes for $58.
