“I Kissed a Girl” launched Katy Perry’s career as a pop star in 2008. The chorus goes like this, “I kissed a girl and I liked it. The taste of her Cherry Chapstick.” But what if she wrote the song at this very moment in Manila? Well, the lyrics might have been, “I kissed a girl and I liked it. The taste of her sisig lip balm.”
Uhm, wait. Sisig lip balm? I don’t know if this is some kind of April Fools joke, but it apparently exists. For real or for April Fools? It looks like it’s for real!
On March 29, Sisig Society revealed their latest innovation in the form of sisig-flavored lip balm. Yup, it’s time to throw away your sweet, fruity lip balm. Packed in a tiny tin can, Sisig Society’s lip balm promises to “grease”—uhm, they mean “moisturize”—your lips.
“Taste your favorite sisig in a swipe. Kanin na lang ang kulang,” they share in a post. Well, the lip balm can satisfy your sisig cravings in two flavors: Classic Pork and Spicy Chicken. That’s one weird flex, but I’d go for Spicy Chicken.
I have yet to try, but I’ve heard that this smells exactly like freshly served sisig minus the sizzle. And it apparently has the taste of Sisig Society’s special secret sauce.
Hmmm. Sounds exciting, but I must see it to believe it.
The Sisig Lip Balm is currently up for reservation through Sisig Society’s Facebook and Instagram.
