Happy National Lollypop Day!Culinary historiansGeorge SmithHappy National LollypopNational LollypopPunchbowl
Looking for a sweet way to celebrate this Saturday?
Look no farther than See’s Candies, where you can pick up a free lollypop in honor of National Lollypop Day.
According to Punchbowl:
Culinary historians believe that the lollipop (or at least some form of it) has been around since the prehistoric era. Early humans often enjoyed honey on a stick as a delicious treat. No one really knows how the modern-day lollipop was invented, but we do know how it got its name. George Smith, the owner of a small American candy store, came up with the sweet’s name. In the early 1900s, he called the candy a “lollipop” after his favorite racehorse—Lolly Pop.
Of course, no holiday is complete without a song, so here’s an earworm from the Chordettes to honor the occasion.
