Gimme that lollipop.
Legend has it that the candy cane was invented to sooth inattentive full of energy toddlers.
That is right ...to keep em quiet during a church function.
The crook is said to be a reminder of shepherds.
The confectionary mint has come a long way.
It not only can be flavored differently, it comes in a variety of colors now.
These fancy shaped mints come in different sizes too.
You can choose what you like.
From Thanksgiving to the New Year it is a quintessential part of the holiday season.
You can hang them on your tree or give them out as a kind gesture.
So enjoy your holiday lollipop and if the children need a little soothing sugar, its guaranteed history must mean it works!
