Scorpion Lollipops

Not too far afield, lollipops come with a side of danger. In Mexico, and now in some parts of the Southwest, lollipops come with scorpions in the center. (The sucker is clear, so you can see when you're getting close to the center.) They come in banana, apple, blueberry, and strawberry flavors, and the best method is to eat all the candy first, followed by the scorpion in one final bite.
