National Lollipop Day - July 20

LollipopsThere are a lot of silly official days declared out there and National Lollipop Day is really no different. The lollipop isn’t terribly significant as a confection. It’s just a hard candy on a stick. But we love them.

So today I’ll review a bunch of pops I have sitting around: Charms Zip-a-Dee, Charms Blow Pops, Bazooka Bubble Gum Filled Pops and even some little novelty push pops themed with Ratatouille characters.

Though the lore of manufactured lollipops says that they were only invented in 1908, I reckon that lollipops were one of the earliest improvised sweets as people boiled honey and scooped it out with sticks. More at CandyUSA on that subject. I’ve got lollipops to eat!
