Just when I think I've seen everything, I realize I haven't. At all. Introducing breast milk flavored lollipops.

I have no idea if this is supposed to be a joke or not. It sure looks real to me. And although no breasts were harmed in the making of these pops, apparently, breast milk was used in the research in order to create a "candified" version.

From the site:

So what's happening is that suddenly it seems as though a lot of our friends are having babies. And since some of us are confectioners, we felt it was our responsibility to find out just what this flavor was that could turn a screaming, furious infant into a placid, contented one. Surely the flavor must be heavenly, yes?

We are endlessly grateful to all the mothers who kept sharing their breast milk with our flavor specialists until we were able to candify it. These lollipops won't bring back childhood memory; they'll bring up animal instinct. Quite possibly the most inherently satisfying flavor of all time.

The company, Lollyphile, also offers less startling flavors, like Absinthe, Habanero Tequila, and one called "Party Girl," which they say tastes like birthday cake icing. They also have something called Pangalactic Gargle Blaster. "It's fruity, and gin-ny, with notes of being hit over the head with a gold brick."
