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 Gawker.com:
"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.
