Campari Cocktail Rings- A Foodie Francis Food Review

Edible lollipops that go on your finger and taste like Campari.

You ever got drunk?

I sure have. Too many times.

Another question- You ever been drinking a “get ya drunk” drink and think, “Damn, I wish this liquor was a Ring Pop!”

No? Well, it doesn’t matter because the world has answered your Never-Asked question regardless.

Presenting Alcoholic Ring Pops!!!

Sweet Saba, a New York based candy brand, has joined forces with Campari (A red liqueur?) to bring you “cocktail rings.” Edible lollipops that go on your finger and taste like Campari.

Couple more questions.

What is Campari? I’m an avid whisky drinker and if I must (HAVE TO) drink liqueur it is always FIREBALL, baby!!! Whiskey meets Atomic Fireballs. Yes. All day long, yes.

After googling Campari I found out that (cut and paste) Campari is an alcoholic liqueur, considered an apéritif (20.5%, 21%, 24%, 25%, or 28.5% ABV, depending on the country in which it is sold), obtained from the infusion of herbs and fruit (including chinotto and cascarilla) in alcohol and water. It is a bitter characterised by its dark red colour.

I have no idea what most of that means but it sounds shitty. I mean, I like herbs and fruit but what the hell is chinotto? Or cascarilla?

More research googling states that (cut and paste)




Chinotto [kiˈnɔtto] is a type of carbonated soft drink produced from the juice of the fruit of the myrtle-leaved orange tree (Citrus myrtifolia). The beverage is dark in color. Its appearance is similar to that of cola, but it is not as sweet as cola, having a bittersweet taste.

And….

Croton eluteria, known as Cascarilla, is a plant species of the genus Croton, that is native to the Caribbean. It has been naturalized in other tropical regions of the Americas. It grows to be a small tree or tall shrub, rarely reaching 20 feet in height.

I didn’t read either of those descriptions because I don’t care but I thought you’d might give a shit.

Either way, I’m not going to drink any Campari any time soon and I wouldn’t get one of these Finger Pops either. Here’s the two reasons why:

  • They cost $62 (and are available HERE if you’re crazy)
  • They don’t even get you drunk!!!

That’s right. Here we have a $62 dollar lollipop that tastes like liquor you’ve never had and it doesn’t have liquor in it.

Not sure why I even shared this. Sorry.
