Breast Milk Lollipops Are A Thing

Breast Milk Lollipops Are A Thing

First there were breast milk cupcakes. Then came breast milk ice cream. Now there are breast milk lollipops. Are lactating mothers taking over the sweets industry?

Eh, probably not. But if you're desperate for a taste of your infancy, the days when all you were required to do in life was sleep, poop and suck the golden nectar of your mother's bosom, you're in luck.

Lollyphile, the company that brought us lollipop flavors such as horchata, wasabi-ginger, absinthe and--oh yes--Sriracha, has introduced breast milk as its newest flavor.

"So what's happening is that suddenly it seems as though a lot of our friends are having babies," the description reads. "And since some of us are confectioners, 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. Surely the flavor must be heavenly, yes?"

There is no actual breast milk in these lollipops (yay, vegans!). But mothers did donate their milk so that flavor specialists could recreate and candify the flavor, which one curious husband described as "slightly sweet and a little nutty, like warm cinnamon toast." Yum.

Four boob milk pops are $10 on the Lollyphile website.
