Hmm, No: Would You Eat A Breast Milk Lollipop?
Over a year ago, I was helping a friend out on a screenplay about a guy who uses his wife’s breast milk to make fancy pants dessert. What a ridiculous premise, hahaha, right? Well, maybe not entirely. A sweets company in Austin called Lollyphile has come out with a breast milk-flavored lollipop for $2.50 each. The lollipops are actually vegan, which means they aren’t actually made with real human breast milk, but real human breast milk was used by “flavor specialists” in order to create the faux flavoring. “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,” Lollyphile’s website says. Listen, I’ve tasted breast milk before — yes, as a baby, but also as an adult — and it kind of just tastes like watery almond milk. Meh. I’ll stick with Tootsie Pops. But what about you?
