When one is contemplating the very nature of existence and the enormity of the universe, it can help to be slurping on a lollipop, even more so one that neatly resembles a planet from our solar system – it aids concentration.
These planet lollipops from UK-based Marvellous Confectionsare available in sets of eight priced at £15, but be warned, you may find yourself cackling with megalomaniacal glee as you play God and reduce each planet to a mere speck of existence.
Available in watermelon, black cherry, banana, chocolate, cola, cream soda, candyfloss and bubblegum flavours, each lollipop has a shelf life of up to six months, so time this right and I think we have your Xmas 2016 stocking fillers all tied up.
