Giant Tootsie Pop

Now this is something Mr. Owl will go crazy for!  Not just one, or two, but 10 lollipops inside a Giant Tootsie Pop!! So many and so delicious!  

Tootsie Pops come in Cherry, Orange, Grape, Raspberry, and Chocolate and they ALL have the chocolatey Tootsie Roll center.  That perfect combination of hard candy and soft...and fruity and chocolatey...Just made for each other!  But, how many licks does it take to get to the center of the Tootsie Pop?  Ever tried it?  I can't help but bite into it when I'm halfway through eating my pop.  And my favorite flavor would have to be the Raspberry.  Raspberry covered chocolate because you taste the raspberry first and then get to the chocolate.

I loved seeing the Giant Tootsie Pop when they got delivered to me by Diversified Licensing, just the site of these Giant Tootsie pops made me smile.  I didn't want to even open them because they were perfect decor for my room.  When I finally had it in my hand, it was like opening a present.  I shook it to hear what was inside, unwrapped the wrapper, and found a surprise, 10 Tootsie pops inside!

It made me wish that lollipops grew from trees, oh wait..maybe they do according to that picture!  How cool would that be if the world just became candyland and completely edible.  

If you're having a party, you can buy about 20 of these and make a lollipop trail.  They stick right in the ground and are so fun to look at and eventually eat.  Or buy 5 of them and use them as a lollipop bouquet at your rehearsal dinner.  There's so many fun things you can do with these Giant Tootsie Pops, the world may never know!!

Gummy Bear Dress

Would you ever wear a dress that weighs 220 pounds? What about if it was made out of gummy bears and it made you look absolutely scrumptious? Check out this Gummy Bear dress!

Twelv Magazine turned the unimaginable into reality.  They created a dress made completely up of gummy bears.  50,000 to be exact.  The perfectly sorted colors created a delicious and extremely heavy rainbow.  The dress took three weeks to make as each gummy bear was hand glued individually.  What an amazing idea!  

So what do you think, would you wear it? Wedding dress perhaps? Maybe prom? ;) I know I'd like to have a photo shoot in this dress for sure!
