Ah, the flavored condom—a tried-and-true novelty contraceptive found in bachelorette parties and gas station restrooms, alike, but not something people *really* use in the bedroom, right?

Well, why not? Thanks to innovations in condom development, gone are the days of overpowering latex scents, nauseating fake flavors, and plastic-y lube smells. These tasty treats can bring some real flavor to the bedroom, keeping both parties safe and satisfied. "Some are very tasty and sweet," says sexologist Marla Renee Stewart, sexpert for Lovers, a sexual wellness brand. "They make oral sex more fun and flavorful [while] protecting your mouth from STDs or STIs."

But before you run down to the local drugstore to pick up a pack of mouth-watering rubbers, Stewart says to keep an eye on the ingredient label. Like anything else you eat, do your due diligence before you get down and dirty. One major red flag may be latex. If you have a latex allergy, stay far away from these flavored condoms. Depending on your body and your tolerance, other red flags could include the flavoring, spermicides, or scents.

Also worth noting: "Most flavorful condoms contain glycerin or glucose, which is another name for sugar, so if you're a person that has to stay away from sugar, you should probably not use these condoms," says Stewart. Plus: "Flavored condoms are full of artificial ingredients, so if you have a hard time ingesting those, then you should stay away from them.”

Should you decide to proceed, we’ve rounded up a slew of sexpert-approved options below.

These are Stewart’s all-time favorite flavored condoms, hands down. “They taste like the flavor they say—not a watered-down version of it,” she says. “They make oral sex fun, and the colors are also unique and vibrant.” Try grape, strawberry, or if you want something sweeter, vanilla.

Lifestyles Assorted Flavored Condoms — $1.00

Stewart also recommends these flavored condoms, which you can buy individually on Lovers’ website. “They’re great if you don’t like them as sweet, as their flavor and the sugar content are less than some of the other brands,” she says. Fruit flavors include strawberry and banana.
