Scorpion Lollipop - Paruroctonus mesaensis
Scorpions appear in the fossil record in the Silurian Period, some 430 million years ago, and might have originally been aquatic animals in shallow seas. Predatory creatures in the order Arachnida, they have eight legs, and are easily recognized by their claws and curved, segmented tail tipped with a venomous stinger. Scorpions can be found all around the world, and they flourish in a variety of habitats. Although they can be fearsome and have a highly unpleasant reputation, there are only about 25 known species that possess venom strong enough to kill a human.
These Scorpion Lollipops are made with sugar-free Maltitol and are available in four fine flavors. One of our classic items, they are an unusual way to expand your palette. They are certainly the most popular and perhaps the most hair-raising of the lollipops we offer! Customers are often incredulous when told that the Scorpion is 100% real, and sometimes even ask us if they will die if they eat it (we like to respond that we have tried all of them and we seem to be holding up so far). The Scorpions have been cleaned and cooked and are just fine to eat. So try ‘em all and impress your friends!
