Did you know that the lollipop is a Spanish invention? I could hardly believe it! The first candy with a stick in history was invented in 1958 by Enric Bernat, who imagined a candy held with a fork. Surely he could not imagine that his idea would be so successful. The first lollipop flavors were strawberry, lemon, orange, cola and mint. Years later, other new flavors were created and about 800 lollipops were produced a day. In this way, the brand grew over the years and in 1990, Chupachups was present in more than 160 countries. In addition, in 1994 the first mega lollipop was created which consisted of 735 grams of candy. Since then, this brand has continued being successful and it has not stopped increasing its spectacular sales. All children love this product and they are Chupachups' main consumers.
