Hotlix:Insect Candy !!!


Californian based candy creators HOTLIX have been making people cringe with delight with their outrageous confections for over 25 years .Even the sweetest tooth might find these confections easy to resist .From worm lollipops to chocolate-dipped scorpions these bizarre concoctions could be from the dark mind of a twisted Willy Wonka


“Our first insect candy was a tequila flavoured lollipop with a worm in it back in 1982,” said Katy Mitchell, manager of HOTLIX .”At the time it was really popular and we weren’t sure how long the popularity would last. Twenty-five years later we are still going strong and our insect candy has taken off worldwide” The brainchild of Larry Peterman, 70, HOTLIX have expanded their line to include devilish delights from apple, lemon and orange flavoured Cricket Suckers to Amber InsectNside and spice-flavoured Larvets Hotlix insect candy in pictures: chocolate scorpions, worm lollipops and maggot toffee apples


“Larry has what he calls the worm ranch where he grows all of the insects for food products,” revealed Katy .Katy is quick to point out that everything at HOTLIX is edible. “I get a lot of questions about this but yes everything is edible – even the scorpions,” she said

“The owner does not divulge exactly what the process is before they are cooked because over the years we have had a lot of people who have tried to copy the process. So far though our secrets have stayed safe and sound”
