Finally a team of physicists has devoted the proper time and effort to answering the age old question, “Is it better to bite into a round piece of candy, or continually suck on it?” In a paper poetically titled, “Sticky physics of joy: On the dissolution of spherical candies,” researchers from the University of Graz in Austria described the results of an experiment in which they placed spherical candies in a water bath made to replicate the pH levels and movement of a human mouth and observed the way they dissolved over time. The researchers expected the candy to vanish exponentially, but their findings indicated that the candies dissolved at a constant linear rate instead. What does this mean for candy enthusiasts?

Weekend Project: Bellini Rose Petal Lollipops

We were totally obsessed with boozy popsicles this summer, but once the weather cools down, we’re going to have to put down our cocktails-on-a-stick and reach for a treat that won’t give us a brainfreeze. A worthy replacement for fall? Homemade lollipops! These bellini-flavored lollipops would be perfect for wedding favors, party treats, or just as an exceedingly glamorous way to get your afternoon sugar hit. Let the licking begin! [Etsy Weddings]

As I’ve mentioned about a billion times before, I’m totally obsessed with everything British, so when I saw these candy bars–which combine traditional British pudding flavors, chocolate, and a colorful Union Jack design–I was sold. Crafted in honor of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, they’re swirled with fun ingredients like toffee, strawberry, white chocolate, and meringue. Sounds bloody delicious, right? I fancy the whole set.

The Japanese girl group AKB48 is under fire for filming a series of suggestive candy ads that some claim promote homosexuality. The group’s ads for a sugary gummy candy feature the members of the group clad in school girl uniforms passing a piece of the candy between one another using only their mouths. Watchdog groups claim this ad promotes the gay lifestyle and is overly suggestive, despite the fact that none of the girls actually touch lips in the thirty-second spot.

The candy makers are standing behind the ad, and say that it’s one of the most popular commercials they’ve ever run (surprise, surprise). AKB48 is hugely successful in Japan and across Asia; last year they made more than $200 million in sales. The band features more than 60 (!) members and has its own dedicated performance space in Tokyo. [Yahoo]

I know it’s super easy to go out and buy a lifetime supply of Cadbury Creme Eggs, and it may be a little Pinterest-y of me to suggest that it’s always better to make something yourself than buy it premade, but in this case, I’m pretty sure the extra work is worth it. First of all, the recipe calls for yummy, natural ingredients like butter, vanilla bean, and orange blossom water. Second of all, I can’t think of any two sentences more impressive than, “Care for a Cadbury Creme Egg? I made them myself.” [Not Without Salt]

Candy That Explodes In Your Mouth

As a fan of gummy candies — Sour Patch Kids forever! — I’m distressed by the existence of Spermies. The claim that there’s been “no salt added” doesn’t do much to reassure me that these fast-swimmers go down easy. No thanks!

Some things really get my goat when it comes to kids, like little girls wearing heavy makeup. (Cough, cough.) But pot leaf-shaped candy? Meh.

Parents around the country are reportedly upset with “pothead” lollipops and ring-pops, which are sour apple-flavored suckers in the shape of marijuana leaves. According to the Washington Post, the lollipops sell for about a dollar and the ringpops sell for about three for $1.50. But, in an egregious example of false advertising, “pothead” candy doesn’t contain any THC. Instead, the packaging just shows a stoner-looking dude flashing a peace sign and the word “Legalize.” So, you know, the kids think it’s the cat’s pajamas.

Stir Things Up With These Peppermint Cocktail Stirrers

One of our favorite things to do during the holidays is to take things that are already awesome — like chocolate brownies, kitty cats, and cocktails, for example — and make them even more awesome, usually by adding some marshmallows or mint chips and maybe a cute Christmas sweater to the former two. For the latter, Baileys usually does the trick, but then we found these peppermint cocktail stirrers and, oh my God, suddenly our lives — and our drinks — just got a bit more festive. Cheers, and happy holidays, everyone!
