I received a Saran wrapped package from the US with a tequila lollipop containing a real worm inside and a note which says “If he’s not in Jail, pass to 6 Seal at 016 8883166”. Thanks for the vote of confidence, Eddie [cooknengr.com]. :p
The tequila flavored lollipop with a real worm comes courtesy of Eddie who came back from the US a while ago before heading back for work again. The lollipop is called HotLix and it’s called “Tequila Flavor with Worm” and lists Malitol syrup, Insect Larva, natural and artificial flavoring as the ingredients.
This is a closer look at the tequila flavored lollipop containing a genuine tequila worm inside. The tequila worm is listed as “insect larvae” and it’s technically a caterpillar that lives on the leaves on the mescal plant and it’s usually called an “agave worm”. There is no worm in tequila of course, but this marketing perpetuated myth has produced some interesting products. 🙂
The tequila flavored lollypop with worm tastes great – but the syrupy lollypop kept on sticking to my tongue piercing stud. It’s a very sticky lollypop which smoothes out towards the end and the are hints of tequila flavor (agave) shines through after the initial sugary taste. The objective is to suck on it until the tequila worm comes out. The tequila worm (technically insect larvae) tastes great!
Mmm…tastes like chicken. 🙂
Scratch that…it actually tastes a little crunchy and has a deep fried texture to it; so I would say it tastes like deep fried chicken skin. 😉]]>
