A majority of us know them as lollipops or suckers. Whatever you call them, there’s one thing we know for sure----they’re delicious. In honor of National Lollipop Day, we've shared some fun (and strange) facts about the popular, hard, confectionery candy. Here are 5 random facts about lollipops:
1. The largest lollipop was created by See’s Candies
See’s Candies created the massive sugary giant on July 18, 2012 in Burlingame, California. The 7,003-pound, chocolate-flavored lollipop was 4 feet 8.75 inches in length, 3 feet 6 inches in width, and 5 feet 11 inches in height. (To put this in perspective, the lollipop is 1 inch taller than Kendall Jenner!)
2. Lil Wayne aka Weezy F. Baby made a song about Lollipops in his 2008 hit “Lollipop”.
Side Fact: "Lollipop" was the highest-selling ringtone of 2008.
3. Speaking of songs about lollipops, Ronald & Ruby recorded the iconic hit “Lollipop” in 1958.
The 60-year-old bubble gum pop song was inspired when songwriter, Julius Dixson, was late for a songwriting session with Beverly Ross. He explained that he was late because his daughter had gotten a lollipop stuck in her hair.
