Summary
This observance day for a popular treat will take some licking.

The exact origins of the lollipop are unclear, but it is believed that the first modern-style lollipop was invented in the early 20th century.

George Smith, a confectioner from New Haven, Connecticut, is often credited with inventing the modern lollipop in 1908. He reportedly came up with the idea of putting hard candy on a stick to make it easier to eat and named his creation after a popular racing horse called Lolly Pop.

Another theory is that the lollipop was invented by a candy maker named Racine, who worked for the Racine Confectionery Machine Company in Ohio, in the early 1900s.

Regardless of who invented it, the lollipop quickly became a popular treat, especially for children, and is now available in a wide variety of flavors, shapes, and sizes.
