Lolly Poppins – Candy Tables and Lollipops

Reasons why we eat lollipops

1. The lollipop was used to cut back on smoking. The TV character Kojak even admitted once that because he smoked too much he sucked on lollipops every day except on Sundays.

2. Some people say lollipops can work as an appetite suppressant and can help people lose weight while keeping energy levels up. Eating a lollipop before meals may help you get to your goal weight.

3. Kim Kardashian Just Endorsed The Lollipop Diet.

According to Kim Kardashian , lollipops are “unreal” and, says some contain satiereal, an active ingredient extracted from “natural plants” (aren’t all plants natural?). Simply have one or two a day – or whenever hunger strikes (up to 12 a day – yes 12!) – to stop unnecessary snacking in its tracks, is the claim. And with just 35 Cals per pop, they shouldn’t break the bank…

4. How to eat a lollipop?

  • Unwrap it
  • Stick the whole lollipop in your left cheek (I tend to chew on the left)
  • Grasp it firmly with your premolars and molars.
  • take hold of the lollipop stick,
  • Yank on the stick, hard.
  • Once the candy is separated, crack it into pieces with your teeth and chew.

5. Lollipops can be used to carry medicines.

Some lollipops have been marketed for use as a diet aid. Though their effectiveness is untested, an anecdotal case of weight loss may be due to the power of suggestion. Flavoured lollipops containing medicine are intended to give children medicine without fuss.

7. How many licks does it take to finish a giant lollipop?

A group of engineering students from Purdue University reported that its licking machine, modeled after a human tongue, took an average of 364 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. Twenty of the group’s volunteers assumed the licking challenge-unassisted by machinery-and averaged 252 licks each to the center.

8. The first incarnation of the lollipop was probably created by cave people thousands of years ago who collected honey from beehives with a stick. Not wanting to waste the sweet nectar, they most likely licked the stick, thus inventing the world’s first lollipop

9. In the 17th Century, as sugar became more plentiful, the English enjoyed boiled sugar candy treats and inserted sticks into them to make them easier to eat, too. Linguists say the term ‘lolly pop’ literally means ‘tongue slap’ (which we find hilarious) since the word for ‘tongue’ is ‘lolly’ in Northern England and ‘pop’ means ‘slap.’ London street vendors may have coined this term as they peddled the treat, which was soft rather than hard, but still considered a possible forerunner to the modern lollipop.
