History of Dum Dums Lollipops
Invented in 1924 by Akron Candy Company in Bellevue, Ohio, Dum Dums candy hit the market in seven delicious flavors of lemon, lime, orange, coconut-pineapple, cherry, grape, and butterscotch, each one even more delicious than the next! These tiny crystalline orbs on a paper-wrapped stick got their whimsical name from the company’s sales manager, who felt the phrase could be repeated easily by children. His idea turned out to be spot on, as the confection soon became a household name! In 1953, this iconic lollipop was acquired by Spangler, who attempted to modernize its design by replacing the paper sticks with plastic. This innovation did not go over well, as complaints poured in over the potential for the new sticks to cause injury, leading the confectioner to revert to the tried and true paper version. Currently made in Bryan, Ohio, this brand continues to be one of America’s all-time favorites!
