You Gotta See This

LAS VEGAS, NV - SEPTEMBER 02: Lollipops are displayed at 3940 Coffee + Tea at the opening of Delano Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip on September 2, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

We’re suckers for a good lollipop. Are you? 

The modern day lollipop was invented in the early 1900s and have undoubtedly made a lasting impact on the sweet tooth and sugar addicts.

This popular and delightful treat comes in all shapes, sizes, and flavors.

And since it’s National Lollipop Day, we have to ask. What lolly will you be licking down to the core today?

To celebrate, we’ve explored some of the different kinds of suckers you can enjoy, both modern and old fashioned. Take a look. Which can we expect to see in your shopping cart?

Rainbow Swirl Whirly Pops

Definitely candy you ate as a kid. The candy shop was your heaven. Where have those days gone?!


The candy you got in class for doing well on your assignments. Because you’re not a dum dum!

Blow Pops

A sucker filled with bubble gum. Gum that was way more exciting than a pack you buy on the rack.

Tootsie Roll Pops

A fruity lolly and a taste of chocolate. Have you ever discovered how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop?

Bulk Fruit Lollipops

These could be found in the doctor’s office. These were the treat you’d get for making it through the torture of a shot! But they were totally delish!

Charms Sweet/Sour Pops

Did anyone else get charmed with these during secret Valentines at school? We miss these!


How are these even safe? We’ll take a few!
