The art of food and lip gloss

October 21, 2011 – Food extraordinaire Paula Deen was on Rachael Ray’s show this week touting her latest recipe.

It’s not Southern fried chicken or creamy macaroni and cheese that she’s cooking up this time. It’s lip balm.

Deen has created a new line of lip balms that come in flavors like butter, peach cobbler, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, key lime pie and banana pudding.

I’m not sure about butter-flavored lips, but the rest sound pretty yummy.

Food flavored lip balms and glosses are nothing new. Philosophy, a skin care company that sells their products on QVC and in higher end department stores, has been selling food flavored lip glosses and shower gels for years. Some of their best-selling flavors include caramel apple, candy corn and apple cider, perfect for this time of year. They also offer other seasonal flavors such as peppermint bark, sugar cookie, gingerbread, cinnamon bun and hot chocolate.

For some, bathing in their favorite food flavors or dabbing it on their lips saves calories and helps with cravings.

Or so the creators claim. While I enjoy showering with the aroma of hot chocolate, it makes me want the real thing when I’m finished.
