Breast milk lollipops have launched

accreditation

A breast milk-flavoured lollipop has been launched.

A US company - named Lollyphile - has created the sweet treat for both children and adults, but rather than using actual breast milk, company founder Jason Darling has attempted to capture the "satisfying flavour" by using sweet almond and a creamy base.

Jason said: "People either think it's hilarious, neat, or gross. To the latter I ask: why is human milk gross but cow milk isn't?"

Although the lollies - which are vegan and contain sugar, corn syrup and other natural flavours - have received a backlash of criticism, the company has generated thousands of dollars from a constant supply of orders.

The breast-pops are priced at $10 (£6.39) for four.
