This is the dawning of the age of unseemly food mash-ups.
What is it with 2016 and various food companies deciding to combine foods together that simply don’t belong?
We get it: opposites attract, and we’d be lying if we said we hadn’t gotten down with some sweet-meets-savory combinations before. Chocotaco? Yes please. And we’re not about to say no to some Rose wine gummies.
But a pizza-flavored lollipop?
The company Lollyphile apparently thought this combination was a great idea. As its website states: "In one of our worst/best brainstorming moments, someone here said, ‘how about pizza?’ and then one thing led to another and here we are. No turning back now.”
How about pizza indeed, Lollyphile. For a mere $8, you can order four pizza lollipops to be delivered right to your home. But do you really want to?
As Delish notes, this isn’t the first time Lollyphile innovators have presented their customers with off-the-beaten-path flavors. In the past, the company has offered sriracha, absinthe, chocolate bacon and bleu cheese flavors, so perhaps this new pizza thing isn’t as out of left field as we originally thought.
Still, we don’t know if we’re brave enough to try one just yet.
