Katie Holmes Explains Suri's "Boy Part" Candy to Ellen

Yes, Suri was photographed holding a box of "Penis Gummies" -- but she didn't eat them!

Suri Cruise certainly has gotten her share of reproach for everything from her high-heeled shoes to her continued use of a pacifier, but now it's her candy choice that's raising eyebrows.

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's almost-5-year-old daughter was recently photographed carrying a box of "Penis Gummies," chewy candies shaped like that very specific part of the male anatomy.

Now, Holmes is explaining that her little girl doesn't share her taste for treats with members of a bachelorette party.

During a Thursday chat with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Holmes revealed what really happened. "Recently, I took [Suri] to get ice cream in New York at this place called Serendipity that we go to all the time. It's for kids. The clientele is children," she told Ellen. "We go in and we are waiting for a table and she grabs some gummies that are boy part gummies. I was horrified."

To clarify to the audience, Holmes went on to say, "P-e-n-i-s gummies. I said, oh wow those aren't Swedish Fish... They are called p-e-n-i-s gummies and they look like it."

Apparently, Holmes was not ready to explain to the tot exactly what she had in her hands. "She was holding the box and I was like, 'OK, wow, we don't need that right now.'" said Holmes. "Because I thought if I said 'Put that back,' and then she's going to say, 'What is this?' And I really didn't want to have that conversation."

But Holmes, who stars as Jackie Kennedy in the upcoming ReelzChannel miniseries The Kennedys, was perplexed over why the shop even had the naughty sweets for sale. "I was like, why are selling these here? This is for kids. And then it was on the cover of a magazine that I'm giving her those gummies!"

"I was like, 'Oh my god, no.' We put them back."

Holmes' party did order an array of desserts at Serendipity, however, including the banana split sundae, the walnut sundae and frozen hot chocolate, according to E!

Wait, what? The banana split? The one that's made with a long banana? Oh Katie, you just can't win on this one.
