If you're looking for a candy to remind you of (very early) childhood or if you're just into weird foods, here you go: A Texas-based candy company released a breast-milk-flavored lollipop on Monday night.
The lollipop was inspired by the company's desire to figure out what exactly it is – aside from, you know, fufilling basic nutrition roles – about breast milk that babies find so soothing.
"We felt it was our responsibility to find out just what this flavor was that could turn a screaming, furious infant into a placid, contented one," the company, Lollyphile, wrote on their website.
Upset because you're a vegan and therefore unable to relive the glory days of breast-milk? Fret not — these new pops are dairy-free and contain no actual breast-milk, according to an interview Lollyphile founder Jason Darling gave to the Los Angeles Times.
“Can you imagine armies of pumping mothers?” Darling said. “Managing that would be a logistical nightmare.”
According to Darling, the lollipops are mostly sugar. “It all kind of tastes like almond milk, but sweeter,” he said.
And, if Darling is to be believed, the lollipops, which cost $10 for four, are a hit. “We just released them last night,” he told the LA Times. “And we've already sold a few thousand dollars worth.”
