I can totally hear a teenager somewhere in the Midwest saying this now:
"Dude, I read about these suckers made from absinthe. That stuff will give you hallucinations. Let's buy a whole box!"
Fact: Absinthe lollipops do exist. However, much like beer-battered chicken, penne a la vodka, and O'Doul's, they will not make you tipsy.
The pleasantly green pops are made by San Francisco-based Lollyphile. The budding company currently has one other flavor: Maple-Bacon. Sorry, veggies. There is actual bacon in the mix. At least it's organic bacon.
