National Lollipop Day
It’s National Lollipop Day! What kid doesn’t love a good old fashion sucker?
As a child, I always wanted a tootsie pop because of the Indian shooting the star.
The Legend was that if you had an Indian shooting the star, you could mail it in for a free lollipop. Did you know it is an Urban Legand? There is absolutely no truth to it at all. They will tell you that kids have been mailing them wrappers since the 1930’s. Supposedly 1 in 3 has the Indian shooting the star. That would be a lot of free lollipops.
From time to time as a kid, I got lucky and would find a shopkeeper who would play along and give us a free lollipop. They got no reimbursement but they did make kids happy.
Dum Dums were always in my trick or treat bag as a child. They were okay but not my favorite.
What was your favorite lollipop?
