Remember those fine folks at Lollyphile who whipped up the oh-so-strange vegan breast milk lollipops and the crave-inducing Sriracha lollies earlier this year? Well, now they're upping the ante and adding another buzz food into the mix, bacon.

The company decided to make the candies in response to the recent news that Sriracha might have to close its factories due to the foul stench it was releasing into the Irwindale neighborhood. (The factory has since been cleared to continue pumping out hot sauce, which is great because the price of the hot sauce would have gone up if they were forced to cease operation.)

They came up with the idea because they wanted to create "a holiday lollipop that has nothing to do with pumpkin spice." Word to that.

"We've made several kinds of bacon candy and were the first to make a Sriracha candy," said Jason Darling, the owner of Lollyphile. "This feels like a pretty natural progression, headed straight for awesomeness."

Well, it's certainly more appetizing than breast milk candies, that's for sure.
