If eating a regular lollipop isn't enough for you, then maybe you need to get yourself some Tag Candy. Tag Candy is the name of an augmented reality device created by students at Keio University that can simulate different sensations in the mouth.

Simply put the lollipop from Tag Candy into your mouth and select your sensation. Users can simulate feelings from fizzy to fireworks, with my personal favorite being the simulated airplane sensation.
