Sriracha Bacon Lollipops Combine the Trendiest Things of All Time


Full disclosure: I am so over Sriracha. I can’t stand the smell, the hype, or the fact that you have to dump a bucket of it into anything just to find a little bit of heat. If there was any foodstuff raring to become the new bacon, Sriracha won that race by a good lightyear.

Still, would I try a Sriracha and bacon-flavored lollipop? Eh, can’t say no.

Sriracha Bacon is the new “holiday” flavor from candy company Lollyphile (the guys who brought us the absinthe, breast milk, and blue cheese lollipops). Inspired by the recent Huy Fong – Irwindale lawsuit and (we’re assuming) Santa’s jolly red PJs, the pops are currently being pushed as a “combination of two of the greatest things of all time  . . . candied salty spicy peppery porky goodness.”

Since Black Friday is technically starting a day early this year, why not enjoy your holiday dinner in lollipop form? Start off with a smooth cabernet, follow up with maple bacon and sriracha bacon, and wind down with a smoky bourbon.

Blue Cheese Lollipops, For Grown-Up Sweet Tooths


I don’t know about you, but I outgrew your standard lollipop flavors back in my middle school days. Wild cherry? Meh. Grape? What am I, six? Strawberry? Pass.

So, what’s a grown-up sugarholic to do?

Upgrade with this Blue Cheese Lollipop, brought you by the same people behind the Sriracha lollipop. The creators call this flavor “the mind-blowingest” of all their bizarre combinations, which is already saying something. They also say it started out as a joke, until someone realized it’s kind of the norm for fancy restaurants to mix sharp blue cheeses and sweet flavors, like honey.

So, basically, you should buy a box, and impress/weird out all your friends.

Box of four, $10 @Lollyphile
