Austin, Texas, (November 20th, 2015) – Award-winning gourmet lollipop company, Lollyphile (www.lollyphile.com), has teamed up with mermaid production company Sirenalia (www.sirenalia.com), to develop & release the world's first Mermaid Lollipops.
“It's not easy to really capture supernatural flavors,” said Jason Darling, the owner of Lollyphile. “We've been working closely with the mermaid collective at Sirenalia to get it just right. Mermaids are finicky creatures, and can turn on you in an instant, so we had to approach this project really carefully."
Darling got the idea to make a lollipop specifically geared toward mermaids and mermaid enthusiasts from Maria Russo, owner of Sirenalia. "I've gotten to watch mermaid culture go from being a few girls on old school forums to the huge international community it is now," said Russo. "I thought it would be really fun to make candy with them in mind, and since we've already got Jason painting our tails we decided to just go ahead and take advantage of our resident confectioner!"
"We think we nailed the flavor- it tastes like a tropical cocktail with hints of saltiness and drowned, lovestruck sailors," said Darling. "These lollipops are pretty magical."
Lollyphile is offering 35% off all orders through November 24th with discount code SIRENALIA at checkout.
