Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs is an Australian snack food made by the Greens food company.
Originally released in the 1970s, it is caramelised, ready-to-eat popcorn, similar to the American Cracker Jack. The popcorn is coated with toffee and rolled in crushed peanuts. Flavours include butterscotch and caramel. Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs were known for their bizarre packaging, which featured surreal psychedelic artwork, reminiscent of R. Crumb or The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. This packaging was phased out in the late 1980s, and the sweets are now sold in a wrapper, featuring an insane-looking face on the front.

The happier Eden, shall enjoy their fill
Of bliss on bliss.”

“A full bosom is actually a millstone around a womans neck: it endears her to the men who want to make their mammet of her, but she is never allowed to think that their popping eyes actually see her. Her breasts ... are not parts of a person but lures slung around her neck, to be kneaded and twisted like magic putty, or mumbled and mouthed like lolly ices.”
—Germaine Greer (b. 1939)
“SWEENEY: Ill carry you off
To a cannibal isle.
DORIS: Youll be the cannibal!
SWEENEY: Youll be the missionary!
Ill gobble you up. Ill be the cannibal.”
