Take existing designs for tongue (or other) jewelry and add confectionary material to them, ie: a tongue stud topped with a sour apple sucker, etc. Obviously the candy would have to be smaller than an average sucker, but the concept would still work. After the candy melts one is left with a standard piece of body modification jewelry. you could even vary the types of jewelry so that it is a suprise every time as to what you will end up with. One might be a ruby colored stud, or another might be rhinestone and say "Pimp". Who knows. Variety packs might sell well. For a cheaper, more marketable version one could use plastic mounts that connect the same way as the permanent metal types. A variant could be permanent metal posts with disposable plastic tops coated in candy. This way one can make the initial investment and then continue to buy the cheaper replacement toppers.

       Factor in the price of stainless steel for each piece, and it would turn out to be some absurdly expensive jewelry.

       That is why the replacable heads (pardon the unintended pun) would be a much more viable invention.

       But at the center of each piece would be plastic, metal, or no solid core at all? I hate plastic backings on my labrets, and I know of far too many folks that end up swallowing loads of steel barbells because their ends are crap.   

       One other interesting thing to overcome would be maintainence. I know I have to stop what I'm doing to pull my lip out far enough to get the end on my labrets. Suckers you can pick-up and go, jewelry you have to tinker with.

       How about filling the candy with liquor?

       Time release liquor, for the initial pain and sterilization needs post-piercing.
