Superhero lollies

I came across the idea for these superhero lollypops while looking for ideas for the small one’s birthday.

Ever wonder where the lollypop came from? Well… according to the book Food For Thought: Extraordinary Little Chronicles of the World, they were invented in 1908 by George Smith, owner of a confectionery business called the Bradley Smith Company.

Whether he was or not he was the only one who ever trademarked the name lollipop – in 1931 after his favourite racehorse of the time, Lolly Pop. The name has since fallen into public domain.
