Lolpops is the name of a brand that helps you create a chocolate lollipop that looks like your own face covered in gold. I didn't know I needed one of these until now.
Foodbeast reports that the brains behind this ingenious invention is Candy Mechanics, a company that can take a 3D photo of your face, make it into a lollipop, dip it in gold and ship it right to you. The company is in the UK, so shipping would probably be pretty expensive to the States, but one order comes with three lollipops, and aren't you just dying to gift them?
The company is only selling 500 boxes before Christmas, so you don't have a lot of time if you want to snag an order. In order to get them, you have to take a video of yourself and upload it to the Candy Mechanics website. Check out the video below to see how it's done.
The fun doesn't stop with your face being crafted into a chocolate and golden Lolpop. Candy Mechanics can also help you send chocolate cards in the mail. Because, as it says on their website, "Why send paper when you can send chocolate?" That is, in fact, a great question.
The company features templates for basically every occasion, and you can create your custom card right there on the website. Use white or milk chocolate and wish your loved ones happy birthday, happy holidays, or even just to say thank you. Personally, I wouldn't be disappointed if I got a chocolate Valentine card. What says love better than chocolate (other than diamonds, of course)?
Both Lolpops and Candy Cards come in a package small enough to fit through a mail slot, so you don't have to worry much about the intended recipient missing the gift. If you don't think you can make it in time for the Lolpop Christmas gift, you should absolutely strive to make the candy card a reality. Better, yet, send the Lolpops and candy cards! That is…If you have any major chocolate lovers in your family.
