lollipop


According to the National Confectioners Association, July 20 celebrates National Lollipop Day.  

Lollipops come in many colors, flavors and shapes. They range from the small size, which can be bought by the bag full and are also given away at banks, barbershops, parades, and etc., to the very large ones that are made out of candy canes twisted into circles.

The history of the first lollipops in America is unclear.  Some speculate that they were invented during the American Civil War (1861-1865) while others believe lollipops have been around since the early 1800′s.  Most often, it is George Smith who gets the credit for inventing the modern style lollipop in 1908 and he trademarked the lollipop name in 1931.  His idea of putting candy on a stick was to make it easier to eat and the name of the treats was after a, then popular, racing horse, Lolly Pop.

Happy National Lollipop Day !

 Like, preferrably the Dum Dums ones. Been quite a while since I've had one, though; I like the candy, but hate how the stick gets soggy.

I like them. I haven't had one in some time. I think the last one I had was a dum dum a couple of month ago.
