AUSTIN, Texas, April 22 (UPI) -- Although flavors like breast milk, sriracha bacon and wasabi-ginger might not necessarily sound all that appetizing, candy company Lollyphile has three new flavored lollipops that could really hit the spot on a hot summer day -- IPA, lager, and stout.

In addition to those sudsy suckers, the company also offers cocktail-flavored candy pops as well as cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and merlot-flavored lollies.

“We tried our best to stay true to each of these varieties, Stout being big & dark, IPA being hoppy as hell, and Lager based on our favorite Pilsner,” Lollyphile owner Jason Darling told Gizmodo. “It was, to say the least, a very fun flavor matching experience.”

It sounds like it.

“The King of Lollipops! A real banquet lollipop! An All-American slam-dunk barbecue apple pie badass lollipop,” reads the lager’s description. “Perfect for basically everything, our Lager lollipop is based on Pilsners of, let's be honest, our collective youths.”

Lollyphile is a company with ties to San Francisco and Austin with a “sweet tooth and a short attention span.”
