The striped barber pole originated back in the Middle Ages, when those in the profession would use it to indicate the locations of their places of business to the illiterate public. Mind you, this was a time when barbers still performed surgeries and tooth extractions in addition to basic hair cutting services, so the association was a little more traumatizing than the happy-go-lucky rotating pole with which we are familiar today.
In this day and age, the colorful, spinning pole is a nostalgic addition to store fronts, harking back to the days when barber shops doubled as gathering places for friends to pass the time exchanging news and gossip (and not performing antiquated surgeries). Today, capture all the joy of that era with these Barber Pole Hard Candy Pops! Unlike the traditional variety, this cherry flavored sucker displays ribbons in every color of the rainbow. Each delicious, colorful stick is equipped with a unique handle in assorted hues to keep the lick-able confection stylish and mess free!
