If you're anything like me (god help you), you've had a bunch of conversations over the years as to what "mystery flavor" Dum Dums are all about. I've always assumed that they just wrapped a certain number of lollipops at random with that wrapper so that the flavor was a surprise—but that they were still just the standard flavors. BZZZZT, WRONG, says Mental Floss! Apparently, the truth is that a mystery flavor is any hybrid created when two flavors overlap in production. Otherwise, they'd have to stop the line in between batches and clean the equipment. I guess this is good to know, but the loss of a conversation piece is always a little bittersweet.
