History of Chupa Chups
Known for their yellow and red, daisy-shaped logo, the array of classic fruity and filled Chupa Chups lollipop flavors has been keeping sweets lovers smiling for over 60 years. Originally invented in 1958 by Enric Bernat, who worked for an apple jam factory, this treat was no accident. Bernat had noticed that the traditional bon-bon was too messy and sticky to make a hit with parents, so he put one on a wooden stick and placed them within children’s reach next to cash registers. The success of this new, sweet-on-a-stick epiphany grew Chupa Chups to become a world-renowned confectionery classic.

Chupa Chups Fun Facts
The interesting history of this long-standing sweet treat gets even better. In 1969, the originally simple, square-shaped Chupa Chups logo received a facelift by none other than the famous surrealist artist, Salvador Dali. Dali designed the first version of the daisy-shaped logo filled with a yellow-orange color and red text. He also suggested placing the logo on the top of the pop, instead of on the side, to increase visibility and show the full design. Available in more than 150 countries, these lollipops and suckers have grown in reputation and demand. Explore our variety of Chupa Chups for flavor that lasts!
