It's #NationalLollipopDay!  The history of the Lollipop goes all the way back to the cavemen, but what we know more as our 'Modern Day Lollipop' came about in the early 1900's.  George Smith, the owner of a candy store called the Bradley Smith Company, started making the more modern Lollipops in 1908. In 1931, he trademarked the name 'Lollipop' which borrowed from a famous race horse named Lolly Pop. The word Lollipop means Tongue Slap...  You can catch more history here!  In honor of the L-Pops many Love To Suck On.. especially w/ treats in the middle.. gum... tootsie rolls.. meal worms (yucky) and more!
