Lollipops make life so sweet!

Does looking at lollipops remind you of unicorns, rainbows and all the joyous characters from fantasyland? Here are a few reasons why lollipops were your favourite childhood candy, and continue to be a top candidate in children's candy socks all over the globe.

1) Can't share - What's more awesome than the fact that no one would ask you for a piece of your candy? And if a weird greedy kid did ever ask you for some as you were peeling off the wrapper, you could always just pop it in your mouth and shrug innocently.

2) Good way to pass the time - Ever wondered why your parents were always quick to hand you a lollipop when they were busy and didn't want to be disturbed? Unlike other candies, you can't finish a lollipop in a jiffy. You sit back and enjoy the ball of candy stick, unaware of where the time is flying away.

3) Delicious flavours - From green apple to strawberry, there were just so many flavours to try! Every lick would fill your tummy with little balls of glee and fill your head with images of baby pandas cuddling you.

4)Bright colours - Those glossy candy sticks in all the fantastical colours of your imagination could attract any kid from a million miles away. Just one look at the bright pinks, yellows, purples and rainbows was enough to have a kid hooked.

5) Whistles - Remember the lollipops with whistles at the end of the sticks? Yes, the ones your parents didn't ever want to buy for you. What's better than having a yummy lollipop and also being able to spend your time later blowing whistles around the house and pissing everyone off? You're right, nothing!

6) Chewing gum - The most amazing of the lollipops were the ones which had a tiny ball of chewing gum, at the core of the candy. The fascination lay in the fact that you had to work your way to the hidden treasure, and only then could you enjoy the gum in all its glory.

7) Fun shapes and sizes- Nothing gets a kid's fancy like a lollipop in the shape of his favourite cartoon. From heart shaped lollipops to twister candies, from big spherical smileys to swirl lollipops, trying them all was your biggest dream!
