This lolly is more than just a looker. It gets its cheery colors and creamy flavor from natural ingredients. We’re suckers for this lollipop.
These lollipops are available on Foodzie for a limited time.
I found this lollipop to be very enjoyable with a pure green tea like this Garden Bancha from BigTeaHouse. The tea is mildly sweet and a pleasant earthiness, offering an agreeable contrast to the sweet, creamy taste of the lollipop. This lollipop and a cup of tea is a really lovely way to spend an afternoon!
What I Think:
The first thing I noticed about this lollipop – besides the size (I like the size of this lollipop – not too small, but it’s not one of those monstrously huge lollipops that are about the same circumference of a baby’s head) and the colorful swirls – was the stick. The stick is not one of those wimpy sticks made of tightly wound paper. It is a thick, wooden stick … or perhaps it would be better described as a thin wooden dowel! It is substantial enough to support the lolly without it drooping or falling apart midway through eating it, and it is a comfortable fit in the hand. It doesn’t feel too thin, and because it’s made of wood and not paper it doesn’t begin to disintegrate in the hand … and that’s important because this is not a lollipop that you’re going to finish in a couple of minutes, you know?
And I like the size of the lollipop too, like I said, it’s not too small, but, it’s not so big that I get tired of it before it’s finished. It’s just the right size.
This is a sweet confection, but it doesn’t taste like it’s been artificially flavored. It tastes creamy, in fact, I taste more of the cream than of the strawberry in this. I found myself kind of searching for the strawberry … and I wish that there was more strawberry to this. The cream tastes very pleasant, though, and it is an enjoyable lolly, I just was hoping that a strawberry & cream flavored lollipop would have more strawberry taste to it.
My Final Thoughts:
I enjoyed this. I don’t know that I enjoyed it enough to buy it by the dozen (as offered on Foodzie), but I found it to be a tasty treat, and certainly a welcome addition to this month’s tasting box!
