Planetary Lollipops Are a Sweet Way to Enjoy Our Spectacular Universe

Planet Lollipops, Gourmet Candy by Vintage Confection

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.

Vintage Confections planetary lollipops are now for sale in the My Modern Met Store. (Buy yours now by clicking the button below!)
