Saturn is such a sucker. Vintage Confections

Ever wondered what Neptune tastes like? Vintage Confections on Etsy has the answer. It comes in your choice of either strawberry or cotton candy.

A complete set of solar system lollipops costs $17.50. You get the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Yea for including Pluto! Sorry, Moon, you don't rate high enough to get your own sucker.

Each candy-on-a-stick is made with a clear face, a heavenly body inside, black back, and edible silver glitter simulating stars. Yum, stars.

With all the Mars exploration fever going around right now, solar system lollipops are really tapping into the space zeitgeist of the moment.

This lollipop set would make a great gift for your favorite Mars rover-landing mohawked NASA employee. It would also really add some heft as a gift to go along with telling someone, "You mean the world to me. Here's the Earth. It tastes like cotton candy."
