Now you, too, can be a devourer of worlds — the scourge of the galaxy!

There's something oh-so-enticing about the idea of snacking on Saturn, nibbling on Neptune, munching on Mercury and partaking of Pluto — and these solar system lollipops definitely appeal to our inner nerds on so many levels.

Made by Vintage Confections, each of the 10 lollipops in the set contains an image of a planet, as well as a black back with edible glitter to resemble the stars. They're available in two flavours — strawberry and cotton candy — and are made by hand to order.

These aren't Chupa Chups, though: each set comes in at US$17.50 for 10 planetpops, with an extra US$17.95 for shipping to Australia; and, due to high demand, they won't ship until December.

It's probably cheaper than developing superpowers and flying into space, and would involve fewer flaming fiery deaths. But we can dream ... we can dream.
