According to a press release, businessman Jason Darling started noticing all his friends were having babies. “Sure, the kids are all crazy cute,” he observed, “but what slowly dawned on me was that my friends were actually producing milk so delicious it could turn a screaming, furious child into a docile, contented one.” His next thought: “I knew I had to capture that flavor.”
So Darling’s company, Lollyphile, which offers a wide range of lollipop flavors such as maple bacon, absinthe, and sriracha, now sells breast-milk lollipops. Of course it’s merely flavored that way—no actual breast milk is used. (Remember all the hubbub about breast-milk ice cream in England?) Darling says, “It’s sad that so few people are able to remember this inherently wonderful flavor.” Although if you did remember, aside from the flavor, you might have other issues to deal with.
Darling seems pumped by the prospects of this new lollipop. It’s causing a bit of a stir, and he’ll no doubt milk it for what it’s worth.
