Breast Milk-Flavored Lollipops Hit the Market

Citing a desire to determine what it is that makes breast milk so inherently soothing to babies, a Texas-based candy company called Lollyphile has released a breast milk-flavored lollipop.  The candy is meant for consumption by both kids and adults who, they hope, might be able to reconnect with that comforting sensation.  More from

"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.

Darling also said that the lollipops, which cost $10 for 4 pops, sold "a few thousand dollars' worth" on the first day after the product launched.
