Today’s Daily Post word prompt is ‘lollipop’. That’s a cute word for a sweet little candy! I do like lollipops, and buy them every so often. My favorite used to be the ones called, “Charms”. I’m not sure you can find them now, or at least the last ones I found, just weren’t like the ones I’d get a long time ago. They usually had 2 flavors in one pop, I think a sweet part and a sour part. The one I liked was the lemon/lime one.

I do like all kinds of them, though. Tootsie Roll Pops, Dum-Dums,Β  Chupa-Chups, and even those little ‘safety suckers’, that had a paper loop for a handle. I guess that was for kids. It didn’t have a hard stick, which may be dangerous for a little kid. Anyway, they tasted good.

Wouldn’t you know, when this prompt came up today, that I’d not have even one lollipop in the house to take a photo of! I already ate them all! πŸ™‚

I’ve heard several songs about lollipops, as I’ve read some posts today. I haven’t heard this one from anyone yet, but it was the first one that came to mind for me, today. Enjoy! …

  1. Good! You found a song other than “Lollipop” by The Chordettes! Not that there’s anything wrong with that one, it’s just it’s the only song anyone seemed to know that had lollipop in the title. Surprised I haven’tr seen Lesley Gore’s “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows” yet…

  2. The regular Charms lollipops were better than their Blow Pops which became big when I was a kid. I haven’t seen them in years either. And I’d forgotten all about those safety suckers!

    • Is that what they became? I didn’t know that. My kids used to get those sometimes, but I could never see the lure of having bubblegum inside the candy. I miss the old school Charms.

      • I don’t know if the Blow Pops replaced them or not. Both were sold when I was a kid. But I know Blow Pops still exist while I have not seen the regular Charms suckers since the 80’s…

      • Okay, I looked into it, and seems they do still make both, but they are online at those retro candy places. Not sure if they are exactly the same.
