Heaven on a stick

You can get them in maple-bacon flavor, too, but since this site is about drinks let's emphasize the absinthe-flavored lollipops from Lollyphile, a San Francisco candy company.

The company, which is barely six months old, began when, as the Web site explains, "We found ourselves with a lot of absinthe and no candy. One thing led to another, and we ended up getting picked up by a few candy boutiques and building a Web site, which got way more business than we'd ever expected it would."

The absinthe lollys are within the latest U.S. government rules for the controversial liqueur, and the maple-bacon flavor contain real maple syrup and real bacon. The company is working on additional flavors to add to the line.
