Lollipops



Today I saw a lot of people eating Lollipops. Have you ever wondered about who created this sweet, and more importantly, why is there a stick at the end of the candy.

Enric Bernat come up with the idea of "Eating a sweet with a fork" in 1958. It is because kids always make a mess when eating sweets. Bernat got the idea from Mark Eaton, who complained about his child getting sticky hands from melting sweets and having to wipe them off on a cloth Hmm.

Thus the product "Chupa Chups" was born. Oh ya, he is Spanish...

Lollipops was made famous by Kojak An independent-minded police detective solves crimes on the streets of New York City.

Its a classic 70s show ok.

A bald dude in huge sunglasses sucking on lollipop. You don't have to mention that it was from the 70s. It can't be anything else. :-)

To quote the teenage protagonist of the comics "Zits": "How do you erase an image that's been burned into your retina?"
