KARLSTAD, Sweden, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- A Swedish bakery is raising money for prostate cancer research by offering penis-shaped pastries filled with passion fruit mousse.

The Hanna Larssons Konditori bakery in Karlstad announced that the phallic pastries, which went on sale Monday for Movember (Men's Health Awareness Month), bear blue ribbons for prostate cancer awareness. About 60 cents from each $2.94 purchase of the penis cakes will be donated to prostate cancer research.


The bakery said the cakes have proven extremely popular with customers, with Expressen newspaper reporting 50 of the male member munchies were sold before noon Monday.

"They have been very popular. It's a bit unusual and people have laughed at them and thought they were funny," bakery employee Linda Thoresen told The Local.

Prostate cancer affects an estimated 10,000 men in Sweden each year, making it one of the most common forms of cancer in the country.
