What is the History of Lollipops?

Lollipops and other candies on a stick have roots reaching back into antiquity, although no one can exactly pinpoint the precise trajectory of the lollipop's development. Before sugar was isolated, ancient civilizations preserved fruits and nuts in honey, which is quite gooey. It is believed that they would insert a stick into the preserved item in order to extract it from the honey. Some doubtless partook immediately, eating the preserved item directly from the stick!!!!

Later, in the old days, as sugar became more refined and better known, people started doing inventive things with it, like boiling it and using a stick to eat it in a more convenient way. As candy manufacturing increased in America, the mixture that would be used to make candy was stirred with sticks. Managers occasionally brought the used sticks home (with candy stuck to it) for their children to enjoy. They later discovered that people were willing to buy these sticks, and the "used candy sticks" started to sell. In the early 1900's, in America, a man named George Smith trademarked the name "lollipop" in 1931 and he reportedly named the treats, which were much more elaborately crafted by then, after a popular racing horse, Lolly Pop. Regardless of how they came into being, Gumballs.com has them fresh!
