Mothers looking to give their children a unique, yet familiar, candy treat are in luck.  A lollipop company based in Austin, Texas called Lollyphile is offering new Breast Milk Lollipops, meant to mimic the flavor of a mother’s milk.

According to Lollyphile’s website, numerous mothers shared their breast milk with the company’s “flavor specialists,” until they were able to turn the flavor into a candy.

“I don't know if it's because I'm getting older, but it seems like all of my friends are having babies these days,” Jason Darling, the owner of Lollyphile, said in a statement. “Sure, the kids are all crazy cute, but what slowly dawned on me was that my friends were actually producing milk so delicious it could turn a screaming, furious child into a docile, contented one. I knew I had to capture that flavor."

I wouldn't because no matter how they taste, they are essentially sugar on a stick. And adding breast milk flavour to convince my child that they should eat more of it? Not in this house!

Uh, no. It doesn't gross me out or anything, but what's the point? By time they are old enough for a lollipop (imo), they want other fun flavors. Not something they enjoyed as a baby.

uhhhh... no. My baby isn't old enough for lollipops and by the time he is, he won't want a lollipop that tastes like breast milk. If something new had come out, like a nutritious baby milkshake where the main ingredient was breast milk... maybe. Not lollipops, sorry. He's not getting a lot of sugar as it is even when he's old enough to eat it.
