First off, sorry for the delay in my posting this week. I’m stuck behind “The Great Firewall of China” and WordPress was inaccessible this week. Now on the nitty gritty. This particular post is inspired by my friend and fellow blogger Paul. On his blog ‘Paul sees the world,’ he once wrote about a scorpion lollipop, which he never ended up eating, not even the second time he wrote an entry about it. When I saw a scorpion lollipop in the shop, I knew I had to feature it here.
When I finally got around to eating it, I was a bit hesitant, but I had tried scorpion before. I can tell you straight off the bat that this is definitely a gimmick. I did no enjoy this sucker one bit. The problem was not the little critter within, but the candy itself. It was so thick it took me an hour just to get at the scorpion, not to mention it was pretty tasteless. Needless to say I didn’t finish it. The scorpion itself was fine, just a little chewy. Due to the slow way of eating, it lost a bit of its crunch.
