For a quick exercise in ruling the universe, just shop at Chicago-based Etsy store Vintage Confections, where they offer a 10-piece lollipop set of solar system planets in two flavours: cotton candy and strawberry. Black-flecked at the back with silver edible glitter that pass off as stars, the ten planets in the set are: the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
