—July 20, 🍭National Lollipop Day, is a day that children of all ages can enjoy.
•Lollipops have been around in some form or another since prehistoric times.
•In the 18th century, it seems like there was almost a clamor to create refined versions of the modern lollipop.
•In 1905, the McAviney Candy Company was producing boiled hard candies, the mixture of which was stirred using a stick.
•It is George Smith, owner of the confectionery company Bradley Smith Company, who is credited for creating the modern lollipop that we all enjoy today. He started making them in 1908 and trademarked the word ‘lollipop’ in 1931. Lollipops were also referred to as ‘dum dum suckers’ to appeal to kids.
—Lollipops are a yummy treat – but best left for licking. Be careful not to bite, because you could find yourself with a chipped tooth or broken bracket. And that would be horrible. 🍭👅😋
