This sweet and sour lollipop is definitely suitable for children, but its appearance takes the form of a mini beer mug. Infused with a variety of different fruit flavors, the Tarrito lollipop by Mexican snack manufacturer Dulces Vero tastes absolutely nothing like it seems.
The lollipop is supposed to taste sour at first lick, but gets sweeter as it melts more. Why it is shaped like an alcoholic beverage is not stated. However, this clever design surely catches a lot more attention at the corner store than just a regular spherically shaped lollipop. Though adults may be a little disappointed to find out they have no actual correlation to beer, young children probably feel cool sucking on a forbidden drink-shaped candy.
