Food Friday: Suck on your Green Thumb

The most revolutionary lollipop used to have a tootsie roll or bubble gum when you finish it. Amborella Organics Lollipops have plant seeds in the stick that you can use to grow different herbs and flowers when you’re finished licking. You can save the environment and enjoy candy at the same time, who wouldn’t want that?

The lollipops aren’t exactly blue raspberry or bubblegum flavored. Some of their core flavors are: Sage & Marshmallow, Vanilla & Hibiscus, Rosemary & Mint, and Lemon & Thyme. They each have seeds that match the flavor in the stick. You don’t really need a green thumb to plant these seeds. Just place their biodegradable stick into soil and water it daily.

Would I eat this? I’d definitely try some of them. There’s a variety of interesting flavors and you can test how responsible you are by keeping the plant alive long enough. Their website sells bundles of up to 48 different lollipops for $108 or a pack of 3 of the same flavor for $6.75. It’s a great gift for any vegan in your life.
