There is only one question that comes to mind when scanning over the selection of oddly flavored lollipops available from Austin-based lollipop maker Lollyphile, which includes everything from “Blue Cheese” to “Salty Dog” to “Sriracha Bacon.” And that question is: Has science gone too far? Also, how many licks of a Sriracha pop does it take before your tongue starts to bleed? (OK, maybe two questions.)
The wild array of tantalizing—and terrifying—Lollies comes via Laughing Squid, and although there’s no claimed association with Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans from Harry Potter, we can’t help but think of the classic HP treat when we hear flavors that include “IPA Beer,” “Fruity Cereal Milk,” and “Chocolate Bacon.” Oh, and there is also a “Breast Milk” flavor, and we’d like to all agree now to not find out how Lollyphile honed that particular taste.
According to Lollyphile, the company has been “having fun experimenting with new flavors and watching the reactions of our friends when they try our creations for the first time.” The company also wants to “see just how far [they] can go,” and considering the Breast Milk lollipop, that is definitely no empty promise (threat?).
Lollyphile has over 30 flavors of lollipop, including some more tame flavors like Lavender and Passion Fruit. Also, for any Hitchhiker’s fans out there, there is a “Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster” flavor, although you probably shouldn’t eat more than two unless you’re an ill 30-ton mega elephant.
Lollyphile’s instagram is also just as exciting as its array of lollipop flavors, but fair warning: This is possibly the most coquettish candy campaign in existence:
