I've done NaNoWriMo before. It can be quite the slog, but so much fun when you're done. You've written a book!
Picture yourself halfway through the month: it's November 15th, you've got 20,000 words written out of your 50,000 required. It's late, you've got a deadline at work that you've been slacking off on because you're trying to get this particular scene juuuuuuust right. But hey! You suddenly remember that you've got exactly what you need: lollipops! Blueberry Muffin lollipops, to be exact. Why Blueberry Muffin? Because they have a great warm muffin taste combined with the zing of blueberry that leaps out at you to give you that kick in the pants you might need about that time.
(We also recommend our hazelnut-coffee flavored Lickanthrope lollipops to remind your body of caffeine without actually making it so you can't sleep.)
Good luck with your novel!

Lots of people, particularly kids, have trouble clearing their ears when the cabin pressure changes in an airplane. One technique for unclogging your ears is to swallow or yawn.
Eating a lollipop is one way to stimulate your saliva production and increase the number of times you swallow. If you’re traveling for business or pleasure anytime soon, be sure to include lollipops in your carry-on bag. Even if you’re not headed away on a tropical vacation, try our limited edition of sweet-tart tropical flavors: mango and pineapple suckers.

The next full moon is this weekend – October 23 2010. Whether your personal werewolf beliefs involve lunar-induced phase changes or not, we can all agree that Lickanthrope lollipops are a
ridiculous delicious pun on lycanthropy.
Hazelnut-Coffee lollipops can be part of your Halloween plans if you remember to order by this coming Sunday, October 24th. It’s the day after the full moon, so you can remember it that way :-)

Happy Halloween to all vampire fans! If your Halloween plans include True Blood, Twilight, or vampires in any form, Blood Suckers will delight your friends.
The cool, tingly flavor of anise mimics the vampire’s cooler-than-human body temperature… and the clean sweet taste of apple presents the temptation of eternal life that lurks in the vampire’s kiss...
If you’d like to have seductive, deep red Blood Suckers (or any other flavors of lollipops) at a party you’re throwing or attending, you should order from our Etsy store by this coming Sunday, October 24th, to ensure delivery in time for the 31st.

When I was in college, I used to buy women’s magazines such as Cosmo simply to collect Lancôme advertisements featuring Isabella Rossellini. The woman is the very definition of Eye Candy. I found this scanned-in ad on flickr:
Yup, I had that one up in my dorm room.
