Are your absinthe lollys legal?
Yep. After a ridiculously long prohibition, absinthe has officially made a comeback. The US Government recently approved the sale of absinthe within certain guidelines, namely that there is less than 10ppm of thujone. Our Absinthe Lollipops contain an amount of thujone that is within the legal limits set by the US regulatory authorities and of the European Union.
Do you use real bacon in your candy?
Nope! We used to. But morality & fear of pork recalls (ewww) made us turn to other ideas to keep the flavor alive. We've teamed up with the guys at BaconSalt (amazing bacon flavored salt that's both Kosher & vegan), to do so. We think you'll like them more than before. For nutritional info on BaconSalt, check their website here.
Will the lollipops get me wasted?
Our absinthe lollipops will get you as wasted as will beer-battered chicken, bourbon-infused BBQ sauce, or lasagna alla vodka- which is to say, no: they do not contain alcohol. Furthermore, the myth of thujone is just that. If you’re interested, MSNBC wrote a really good article on the realities of absinthe’s bohemian legends (spoiler alert: the bohemians were really, really drunk).
What other flavors are you going to make?
Well, we have white russians, bourbon & wasabi-ginger, but we’ve got lots of good ideas. Stay tuned or get on our mailing list to be notified about new flavors (and sales)
Can I get mix ‘n’ match flavors? Like three of each kind?
Not right now. Gimme a sec.
How do you open these things? Can you put a page on the website that tells people how to open your lollipops? (Asked by Grandma Shelly)
To open our lollies up, simply twist the wrapper in the opposite direction that it’s currently twisted, and then rip upwards.
Do you offer wholesale pricing for retailers?
If you’re a retailer and you’d like to carry our lollipops, get in touch and let us know. We’re currently being carried by a number of stores nationwide, and we’d love to add your store to the list.
Can you get me my lollipops by, like, tomorrow?
Probably not. We make our lollipops to order in small batches of 54 at a time, so it takes us anywhere from 48 hours to a week to fill orders depending on the volume of orders coming in, and then USPS tends to take about 2-3 business days to deliver within the continental US.
What's up with not shipping internationally?
We're working on it. Right now we're getting all the kinks ironed out, and we'll be able to get it to you foreign brethren soon.
Can I order from you even if I don’t have a PayPal account?
Sure! PayPal is set up to take credit card info. When you’re given the option of checking into PayPal, click “continue” instead- it’s just to the left of the login form- and you can simply input your credit card info & mailing address.
I have an idea for a flavor!
While that’s not technically a question, we get the general gist and are glad that you’re so enthusiastic. However, please understand that we’re a small company, and we don’t have the capacity to vacillate too far from our planned release schedule (such as it is). Feel free to suggest flavors, but don’t hold your breath. Hypoxia’s a bitch.
