Designer Treats Make You Think

Snack on an E Coli Popsicle

Care to put a cactus in your mouth, or how about E. coli? Chinese designer Wei Lei is hoping to find brave souls for her Dangerous Popsicles, a collection of frozen treats. Dangerous Popsicles feature confections in the magnified shapes of viruses like the influenza, chicken pox and E. coli. And there's also the prickly cactus-shaped popsicle! Wired reports that Lei says when she picked germs or diseases for her popsicles, she went with commonly known shapes that were interesting and unique. However, the designer wisely decided to skip the Ebola shape!
