Taste (and see) the Rainbow

This Eye Candy lollipop appeals to your sense of sight rather than taste. Using sensory substitution, it sends your brain visual information via your tongue. The images transmitted with this hi-tech lolly range from shooting stars to spiders and are meant to help you be a better person (somehow). The website claims this technology is delicious, plus you get a bubbly feeling on your tongue. So, it's kind of like new-age, hallucinogenic pop rocks. Trippy.

I'm pretty sure the experience of licking a lollipop and seeing spiders would forever ruin lollipops for me. But I'd totally go for "tranquil fish swimming through the streams of [my] consciousness."
