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 concept was first floated by the head food technologist for Greens, Shane McMaster, in the late 1960s, but the company delayed the product due to uncertainty of the market appeal. The popcorn is coated with toffee and rolled in peanuts. Flavours include butterscotch and caramel. Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs were known for their colourful 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.
