Get ready to celebrate National Lollipop Day on July 20! It's a day not only to enjoy the sweet treats, but also to appreciate their rich history. Lollipops were first created in Europe as early as the 1800s, but it wasn’t until George Smith of New Haven Connecticut invented the lollipop machine in 1908 that they become mass-produced and eventually available around the world. Today we can find all kinds of flavors like grapefruit, bubble gum, and even bacon flavored lollipops. So grab your favorite flavor and let’s celebrate this delicious holiday!
