The cosmos provide an infinite source of wonder with their far-away worlds and swirling nebulas. While you typically need a telescope to enjoy their mesmerizing beauty, we’ve got an easier—and tastier—way to enjoy our solar system. Gourmet candy maker Vintage Confections has created a pack of 10 planet lollipops that are each imprinted with a different wonder of the universe.
The first thing you’ll notice about Vintage Confections is that these aren’t your ordinary lollipops; the images of the planets have an incredible photorealistic quality to them. To do achieve this level of authenticity, the company combines an old candy-making process that dates back to the 1800s (hence their name) with modern-day technology. The result produces pops that are both edible and hand-held works of art.
Each of the 10 planetary lollipops tastes different. They feature sweet and fruit flavors: blackberry, cherry, cotton candy, guava, marshmallow, pear, key lime, strawberry/kiwi, mango, and tropical punch. But if you're wondering what Mars is going to taste like, the company has included a “planet ID card” that tells you exactly what you’ll be enjoying.
