Introduction to Lollipop
Lollipop is a kind of candy food loved by the majority of people. At first, a hard candy was inserted on a stick. Later, many more delicious and fun varieties were developed. Not only children love lollipops, but also some childish adults will eat them. The types of lollipops include gel candy, hard candy, milk candy, chocolate candy and milk and fruit candy.
In 1958, Enrique Bernard Fengliadoza, the inventor of the world-famous lollipop, introduced this candy with a stick for the first time. As a result, a candy company that could hardly operate turned losses into profits.
For some people, it has become a fashionable and interesting symbol to have a candy stick sticking out of their lips.
The Spanish family company that makes lollipop produces 4 billion lollipops every year. It has many branches and factories all over the world, employing nearly 2000 people. They produce more than 50 varieties of lollipops, including a kind of hot lollipop specially for the Mexican market.
Lollypop was also written as lollipop. It first appeared in the form of lolly pop in 1984, representing a small hard candy. Obviously, the lollypops at that time did not have a stick like today's lollipops.
There is no definite answer to the origin of Lollypop, but many etymologists speculate that it originated from the dialect of northern English, the lolly (tongue). Maybe because children like to lick lollipop with their tongues, lolly later has the meaning of lollipop.
The pop in Lollypop has the meaning of "bang, shooting, pop music", but it originally means "short or small things", and Lolypop is just a cheap snack.
In addition, since pop has the meaning of "pop", much like the sound made when opening the cap of a drink containing carbon dioxide, it means "soda". Popsicle means ice lolly, which is called ice lolly in Britain.
