A person without a sweet tooth or a too-mature adult can both still appreciate a sucker. The Sriracha Rooster Sauce Lollipop breaks the conventional mold of a stick-licked hard candy because its flavor is very much in conflict with most others.

This "treat" -- if you can call it that -- is made from a hot chili-based condiment that will certainly singe the surface of your tongue. Its red color alludes to the spiciness of the savory snack, but even aesthetics cannot prepare you for the inevitable burning sensation to come.

Known as the Tasty Firestorm, the Sriracha Rooster Sauce Lollipop does not have to be eaten at dessert. Masquerading as a sweet, it's actually best paired with Asian and South American meals that can benefit from a painful jolt in flavor.
