Dinner at the Sex Shop: Edible Items for Fun Times in Bed
I just want to start by saying edible underwear isn't always as cool as you think it will be.

That's not a metaphor for life. It's a legit piece of advice.
A couple of weeks ago we ranked condom flavors 'cause we thought it would be fun and it's minimally related to food. This week, we went back to the sex shop and bought things that are actually intended to be consumed.
It wasn't pretty.
Because there's such a wide variety of edible items (lube, underwear, lollipops, oral pleasure gel, etc.) and because each item generally comes in a number of different flavors, there was just too much product for us to taste and rank them all. Instead, we're giving you an overview of some of the more interesting products that come in unique flavors.
Please note I did not say "good flavors." Unique.

Most sex shops have these in a variety of sizes and flavors. Just the other day, my friend told me he has a giant rainbow penis lollipop. Great for bachelorette (or bachelor) parties, and surprisingly tasty. I mean, I guess it's hard to mess up flavored sugar. We tried a small orange-flavored one because it was the closest to flesh-colored and therefore the creepiest. It tasted a little like orange Tums because it was slightly chalky. That said, I like the idea of a penis helping me get over a stomach ache.
Verdict: Totally going back for the giant rainbow one ASAP.
I honestly don't even know how many flavors of lube are out there. I would imagine that most fruits have a lube counterpart. I was not expecting pomegranate as an option, but damn! It was pretty good! It tasted a lot like pomegranate juice, only without all those nasty antioxidants. The brand we tried was "Wet," and though we haven't used it for its intended purpose, we all agreed that we'd use it again. For something.
Verdict: POM Wonderful!
