Lollipops & Suckers
Lollipops & Suckers
Ever wondered when the first lollipop candy was invented? These sweet treats actually date back thousands of years to when people used to collect honey with a stick and eat it. Delicious! The time-old tradition is one that’s survived millennia. Experts believe that ancient civilizations including Chinese, Arabs, and Egyptians all created sweetened fruits that they would preserve on sticks. During the American civil war, people put candy on the end of pencils for children to eat. However, it wasn’t until the early 20th Century that the first suckers candy as we know and love it was born. Legend has it that the good folk at McAviney Candy Company invented the first pop by accident in 1905. The company created boiled treats and the staff would stir the mixture with small sticks. These days, you can get everything from berry flavors to rainbow swirl lollipops.
