Breast milk-flavored candy?
It's the latest in breast milk-inspired products. Who could forget the controversial breast milk ice cream introduced in 2011? There is also breast milk jewelry on Etsy. Back to that in a bit.
A lollipop company in Texas called Lollyphile rolled out a breast-milk-flavored lollipop on Monday. But the pops don't actually contain breast milk.
The company writes on its site, "ps there's no actual breast milk in these. they're vegan! omg the armies of pumping women."
So what's the deal?
Breast milk inspired the taste of the pops. From the company's site: "We are endlessly grateful to all the mothers who kept sharing their breast milk with our flavor specialists until we were able to candify it."
Four of the lollipops will cost you $10; a dozen $24; and a case of 36 $58.
For a product made with actual breast milk, check out breast milk jewelry by MommyMilk Creations, which we featured in our Quirky Baby Products gallery.
