Two for Tuesday: Lollipops

Yummy Earth’s Organic Hot Chili Pops in Chili Lime Lambada and Chili Mango Mambo are a great fruit pop with a burst of heat.  It’s not too hot, just a pleasant addition of some heat to kick up the flavor.  I like these at work for a little pick-me-up.

Les Niniches are famous French lollipops made in Quiberon in Brittany.

They come in a variety of flavors, but I chose citron.  It has a sour citrus taste.
