The Charms candy company was founded in 1912 in Topeka, New Jersey, with the production of the first individually wrapped square-shaped hard candies to hit the market. This master confectionary soon rose to fame and became the leading producer of hard candies in the world, and during World War II, Charms lollipops were included in the US Army rations for a source of quick energy for troops fighting abroad. The innovations kept coming, and in the late 1960s, the Charms Blow Pop was invented, which was the first bubble-gum filled lollipop. The acquisition of this candy maker by the Tootsie Roll Company in 1988 added these innovative hard candies on a stick to their product line, thus making Tootsie Roll the largest manufacturer of lollipops in the world.
Aside from the Blow Pop, which is a chewy, bubble gum center surrounded by a delicious, fruit-flavored, hard candy shell, this company makes the extra-large Super Blow Pops, Charms Sweet pops which are a classic flat pop available in a variety of sweet fruit flavors, Sweet and Sour Pops, Mini Pops, Blow Pop Minis, Squares hard candies in cherry, grape, lemon, lime, orange, and raspberry, as well as pleasingly tart Sour Balls packed in a stay-fresh canister. Always a Halloween candy favorite, these confections also come in pumpkin shapes and caramel apple flavor, and for something extra sweet, fluffy Charms cotton candy comes ready to eat packed in easy to tote bags or tubs.
