And Now, An Important Timeline of the History of Lollipops:
🍭 Archaeologists believe that ancient Chinese, Arabs, and Egyptians all produced fruit and nut confections that they "candied" in honey, which serves as a preservative, and inserted sticks into to make easier to eat.
🍭 Middle Ages, Europe - the nobility would often eat boiled sugar with the aid of sticks or handles. In the 17th Century, as sugar became more available in Europe, the English enjoyed boiled sugar candy treats and inserted sticks into them to make them easier to eat, too.
🍭 1800’s USA - George Smith of New Haven, Connecticut claimed to be the first to invent the modern style lollipop in 1908. He used the idea of putting candy on a stick to make it easier to eat, and initially lollipops were a soft, rather than hard, candy.
